In 2012, Aldata was acquired by Symphony Technology Group and rebranded as Symphony GOLD. Six years later, in 2018, Symphony RetailAI was formed with Symphony GOLD becoming the organization’s Retail Solutions Division.

Now called SR Assortment & Space, retailers can learn more here, and CPG manufacturers can read up here.
