Say Hello to my Little Friend

March 31, 2022:

Let me introduce you to another way Artificial Intelligence (AI for short) is being used across the globe to help CPG Brands, Distributors and Retailers execute more efficiently and understand the shopper better. Deploying AI technology across your enterprise can help front line field teams and their Executive Leadership make better decisions.

Every picture tells a story, don’t it?

Thank you for allowing me to introduce Vision IoT, AI driven technology that focuses on delivering insights from bricks and mortar retail using proprietary cameras and AI technology to monitor everything from shopper behavior to cooler temperature changes throughout the day. Over the next several months, I’ll explore all the ways this technology is being deployed throughout the industry, case studies, and new ways to leverage this technology in your business. There are many stories to tell about Vision IoT.

The Future Cooler

Actually, a more accurate description would be that Vision IoT pulls your current cooler into the future. There are millions of coolers installed across the world. Coolers used to merchandise brands like Pepsi and Coke at Walmart, sandwiches and snacks in a freestanding cooler in a fancy convenience store, to beverages placed in an open-air cooler at Starbucks. We can’t forget the cooler for Ice Cream, Milk, Cheese, meat and Frozen Pizzas. (no one likes to eat their vegetables anyway- sorry General Mills). If you have products merchandised in coolers, you understand how many types of coolers are placed in a given retail store. You might wish you better understood the impact each cooler has on sales. If you are priveldged to have multiple coolers in a retail outlet, which cooler position yields the highest ROI. If you are in the dairy business, which cooler bay is more productive for that store. In both cases, understanding shopper behavior for your brands and those of the category would be incredible. If you work behind the bar or in the kitchen, making sure your equipment is operating properly and well stocked is critical in maximizing revenue.

Here’s the problem....

No one really understands the ROI of any cooler. A piece of equipment that is so vital to so many businesses, ubiquitous across all types of retailers, and no one really knows. Being in the beverage industry for much of my life, I could never tell you how much was sold at any given checkout lane in a walmart- was lane 2, better than 7? No data. I can only imagine the issues faced by those in the food service industry. What’s exciting now, are the technological solutions coming from AI to the Retail and Foodservice industries to help solve these problems while making current capital investments generate more value for brands.
