Can Data make your Displays invincible?

Posted by Ed Anderson on Jun 29, 2017 10:30:00 AM

"Business executives don't need to be fluent in data science, it is enough to be literate".

 

 

"Because the velocity of data is increasing and will always increase, the need for data literacy is increasing and will always increase. This does not mean that to be a successful executive you have to become a data scientist – quite the contrary. It means that in order to be a successful executive, you need to understand how data is turned into action, be familiar with the methods of data science and data-scientific research, and be able to think strategically about how to use data to create value for your business."...from a blog from Shelly Palmer titled, "Data Literacy Will Almost Make You Invincible"

Ten Specific Benefits from making Displays Smart

Posted by Ed Anderson on Apr 20, 2017 10:30:00 AM

 "The CPG brands and retailers have known for a long time the best way to drive incremental sales is with displays. There's been plenty of data on that for 10 or 20 years now."...George Garrick, formerly of IRINielsen, currently a Shelfbucks Board Member

CPGs know that as effective as displays are in driving incremental sales, they are placed in selling space less than half the time. This represents a lot of lost opportunities. Merchandising displays haven't changed much for decades. Making corrugated displays smart by adding sensors that can measure the trip from manufacturing thru the supply chain to the retail store is a daunting task, some might even say it would require a miracle.


How it works can be understood here...

The top ten benefits of making Displays smart

Posted by Ed Anderson on Jan 12, 2017 12:30:00 AM

CPG's and Retailers have known for a long time that the best way to drive incremental sales is with displays. What isn't known is how to put a program for continuous improvement in place so that every program you run is better the next time than it was the last time. In order to obtain data about the performance of your display programs, you have to make the displays Smart and institute Data Analytics. Adding a sensor to a POP Merchandising Display can make it smart and enable tracking through the supply chain of the retailer. You can know when it arrives at the store, when(or whether) it gets set up in the front of the store and how long it is up before it is recycled.  Now, even though efforts have been made as far back as 15 years ago to solve this problem, the technology is now affordable, deployable, and scalable. The demand for this knowledge base has been in existence for decades. The industry is ready for this now. To puncuate why the technology is more affordable, we quote McKinsey, January 2017: "we simply have computing power, with the cloud and connectivity, that is much, much lower cost than it was ever before."
