CPG, Retail & eCommerce

Consumer-oriented companies have tremendous opportunity to maximize profits at every stage of the value chain, from optimizing pricing to perfectly aligning supply and demand.

Why AI Now?

No industry has weathered change in recent years as much as retail, eCommerce and consumer goods. However, change presents new opportunities. The digital transformation of the customer journey means machine learning can be used to accurately segment customers and target them with personalized and relevant messages and offers. Social media in particular is a treasure trove of customer insight, both at the individual level — where brand advocates and detractors can be addressed one-on-one — and as a resource to understand broader sentiment towards brands and products. RapidMiner can help companies take these industry shifts in stride and excel past their competition. From understanding buying behaviors to setting the optimal price to ensuring supply meets demand, RapidMiner can help consumer goods companies and retailers maximize profits at each stage of the value chain.
