Symphony Retail Ai announced its formation Jan 11 2018, incorporating Symphony GOLD and Symphony EYC into the company as new divisions.
- A new brand founded on over 25 years of retail and CPG leadership
Symphony Retail Ai was formed in January 2018 as the new, single go-to-market brand encompassing Symphony GOLD and Symphony EYC. Rebranding as Symphony Retail Ai was the next evolution in our exciting journey and will accelerate our ability to help retailers and CPG manufacturers compete and win in the face of increasing competition driven by the likes of Amazon, Walmart and the discount chains.
- Retail Solutions Division (formerly Symphony GOLD)
Renamed as the company’s Retail Solutions Division, for over 25 years Symphony GOLD has been the provider of the industry-leading GOLD unified software platform for omni-channel retail, helping high volume and CPG retailers grow revenue and margins through localized, space-aware assortments and pricing, improved inventory deployment and availability, and increased operational productivity. The organization has delivered results for some of the world’s most known retail brands and consumer goods manufacturers for more than 30 years in over 70 countries, enabling them to provide their shoppers with better value, greater convenience and improved choice.
- Customer Intelligence Division (formerly Symphony EYC)
Symphony EYC, now renamed as the Customer Intelligence Division of Symphony Retail Ai, was a leading provider of software and services for insights-driven customer engagement, partnering with leading retailers and manufacturers in over 70 countries to deliver increased margins, profits and loyalty by enabling a more consistent customer retail experience. The simple, intuitive cloud-based software apps, big data analytic solutions and services, as well as the organization’s innovative omni-channel loyalty management platform, have enabled value creating customer-centric retailing opportunities that align to delight existing and attract new customers.
- Why the focus on Artificial Intelligence now?
The technology capability to be able to deliver real decision support and intelligence systems, has come of age and FMCG retail has a lot of questions, data and deep details to deliver. We launched CINDE (Conversation INsights and Decision Engine), the first and only digital analytic assistant specifically for grocery and hard goods retail. CINDE incorporates Artificial Intelligence, machine learning, natural language speech technology, and immersive visualization in a prescriptive analytics system that is visually rich and easy to use. Initially used in our retail category managers and CPG category managers suite of applications, we are committed to aggressively bringing CINDE skills to other areas across marketing, merchandising and supply chain.
