DALLAS – Dec. 17, 2019 – Symphony RetailAI, provider of the industry’s leading AI-enabled platform and customer-centric solutions that deliver profitable growth for retailers and CPG manufacturers, today announced its participation in NRF 2020 Vision, Retail’s Big Show, including a Big Ideas session with SpartanNash and Dollar General on Sunday, Jan. 12. Additionally, Symphony RetailAI’s booth, #5273, is a planned stop on NRF’s Artificial Intelligence Expo Tour, and the company will offer partner demos in Microsoft’s booth, #4501.
At this year’s event, Symphony RetailAI will share how retailers are achieving 2% or more revenue and profit growth through the adoption of AI-enabled, role-specific solutions that span the retail value chain. The company will showcase how it executes on its customer promise — being the easiest partner to do business with, driving profitable growth in the first year, providing the best quality and service for customer success, and delivering the lowest total cost of ownership through breakthrough AI-enabled innovation.
Attendees can engage with Symphony RetailAI at NRF 2020 in a number of ways:
From the Big Ideas stage: Discussing Dollar General and SpartanNash’s AI experience
Many software companies speak to AI capabilities, but not every company can demonstrate how its customers are benefiting from these capabilities. This session will articulate precisely how retailers are accelerating profitable revenue growth using AI-enabled demand forecasting to the tune of double-digit improvement in forecast accuracy. Move past the hype and get to the facts by attending Symphony RetailAI’s hosted Big Ideas session on Sunday, Jan. 12 from 4:00-4:30 p.m. ET on Stage 2, Level 1, Expo. In the session, “Going from hype to hyper-performance with AI demand forecasting,” Ray R. Wang, principal analyst and founder, Constellation Research Inc., will lead a high-energy discussion with SpartanNash’s Jason Burnett, VP Inventory Management, and Dollar General’s Julie Elmore, Chief Technology Officer, about the retailers’ game-changing experience with AI. Attendees will leave the session with actionable takeaways and a roadmap for achieving the same success.
