Why Do You Need AI to Solve In-Store Execution Issues?

With current technologies, retailers have a hard time predicting how much a SKU should sell in a store. If you don’t know how much it should be selling, how can you know when something’s wrong?

The Old Way

Using time-based benchmarks to trigger alerts that products are underselling

Using chain-wide top sellers to benchmark store performance

Grouping stores by geography or volume

Low hit rate

Poor store compliance due to low hit rate

The New Way

Patterns capture issues that affect the entire long tale of the assortment

95% compliance rate across all our customers due to high hit rates and engaging platforms

Dashboard show exactly how much revenue is generated by the program

Complete visibility to what issues are troubling your chain, on a product, category, store, region level and more

MI capabilities learn from the store managers responses and send recommendations that each store manager is more likely to successful execute

CB4 Workflow

CB4 is a patented AI software for brick-and-mortar retailers. We run machine learning algorithms against your POS data to identify physical issues in a store that are holding back sales and disappointing customers.

We send store managers recommendations to fix the most critical issues, and show them how much sales will increase once they act. We report on program success, compliance, and gross margin lifts in our easy-to-use app.

Start Receiving Recommendations

Store managers receive recommendations via the CB4 app or desktop. They uncover the cause of the low sales, fix the issue, and report back to management by selecting from a menu of likely causes. Every time this happens, CB4’s AI learns and adapts to your store manager’s strengths, resulting in improved performance over time.
