  • Our heritage

    There are two primary reasons why no other company has the depth and breadth of capabilities specifically to support high volume retail that we have at Symphony RetailAI.

    First, we build and enhance our solutions and technology based on our decades of deep work with retailers and CPG manufacturers.

    Second is our rich heritage drawn from the acquisition of industry-leading software organizations. This intentional history is the bloodline that enables us to provide critical insights and solutions to our customers around the world – and help them solve their toughest business problems.

  • 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 personal decision coach 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.
