JUNE 20, 2016, TORONTO ON – Daisy Intelligence Corporation (Daisy) founder and CEO Gary Saarenvirta declared today that the focused AI revolution has arrived in retail. Making its first U.S. appearance at FMI, Daisy is offering retailers and grocers an opportunity to have their current circulars ranked against industry competitive benchmarks using Daisy’s retail AI platform at no charge. Attendees can visit Daisy’s booth #940 and speak to members of the Daisy team to sign up for the complimentary AI analysis.
“The fundamental challenge for retailers remains the same: maximizing revenue and profits while engaging effectively in servicing their customers.”
“The fundamental challenge for retailers remains the same: maximizing revenue and profits while engaging effectively in servicing their customers. In food retail for example, the volume of transactional, promotion and product data that is created daily across all stores and customers makes it impossible for even teams of data scientists to draw actionable insight that verifiably impacts business results. Those volumes continue to expand as retailers look to execute an omnichannel and personalized digital marketing strategy. The complexity of the data makes it tough for humans but perfect for focused AI applications,” noted Saarenvirta. Daisy’s focused artificial intelligence system never gets tired of analyzing vast quantities of dynamically changing data and learns continually to formulate actionable, specific, and customized recommendations that drives optimal business results week after week.
The company’s AI based solutions are particularly well suited for national and regional chain supermarkets, specialty and discount grocers, mass merchandisers, big box retailers, and consumer goods operators who must choose from large numbers of SKUs to deliver frequent promotional offerings via physical and online circulars, emails, SMS, and in-store promotions.
Requiring no systems integration, Daisy’s AI-based platform and its proprietary processes analyzes large amounts of client’s raw point of sale data uncovering purchasing and promotional insights that are invisible to traditional methods. Then Daisy delivers specific, actionable recommendations that clients can use to enhance store traffic, basket size, and profits.
“Daisy can help clients gain consistent store traffic, grow average transaction size, optimize pricing, improve inventory forecasts, and most importantly, increase an organization’s top and bottom line results”, said Saarenvirta.
During the conference, Saarenvirta will be a featured presenter on Thursday, June 23 at 10:45AM CST in the Tech Pavilion. His topic is: “Artificial Intelligence Is Revolutionizing Retail Today. Does Your Company Have a Strategic Plan for AI?” This highly anticipated talk will educate attendees about focused artificial intelligence: its premise, current potential, and role in changing the future of food retail marketing, merchandising and promotion strategies.
