eLeader Shelf Recognition AI winner of Best in Cloud 2020
eLeader Shelf Recognition AI – a solution for automatic analysis of products, merchandising standards and prices, received an award in the Computerworld Best in Cloud 2020 competition in the category “Cloud solutions of artificial intelligence and machine learning”.
eLeader Shelf Recognition AI designed for companies selling with sales representatives and merchandisers, it is based on deep machine learning mechanisms. Based on the photos taken in stores, the software analyzes the display status and, even during the trade visit, provides results that adjust the sales scenarios. In practice, this means that the representative does not have to constantly look at the planogram or, in extreme cases, return to the office to analyze the collected data, and only during the next visit to take corrective actions.
For example, it may be detecting shortages of the company’s products on the shelf and, consequently, completing the order form, verifying whether a specific brand occupies the contracted length of 30% of the shelf or checking whether products with top SKU are on the right shelf in the vicinity of the selected competition. If this is not the case, the employee may point these and other irregularities to the facility manager on the spot. The time saved can be spent on increasing the number of commercial visits or building and strengthening relationships in the visited establishments.
The benefits are also visible on the side of the management, which, in addition to increasing the efficiency of field teams, receives reliable and credible data for analysis, which significantly facilitates making key decisions regarding trade marketing and product exposure.
The application controls the execution and verifies the suitability of the photo before sending it for analysis. In this way, we are sure that the photo taken by the employee will be successfully analyzed, without wasting time on subsequent attempts in the absence of recognition.
