Upload your POS data to CB4's pattern-recognition software to generate recommendations across your entire chain.
Recommendations are delivered to your store managers via our mobile or desktop app to correct operational inefficiencies in stores.
ROI dashboards give you transparency into how much CB4 has helped your stores and how much you can expect to earn over the fiscal year.
CB4's patented machine-learning engine and advanced data compression
algorithms detect hidden consumer demand patterns in sales and inventory data sets.
These patterns are used as dynamic benchmarks that accurately predict expected demand at a SKU-in-store level.
When a SKU fails to meet its expected local demand at a store, the software automatically sends a recommendation to store managers and supervisors that helps them identify and fix a variety of operational issues which are hindering sales.
If a SKU is not currently offered in a store where high local demand is present, the software automatically sends a recommendation to the appropriate merchandising team to add that item into the store's planogram.
“CB4 really understood our business goals. They are not simply a software company, but a partner in our success at Wesco. The execution of the operational and merchandising recommendations from CB4 has resulted in significant new sales gain.”
"Time is of the essence in the daily operation of a c-store and so the ability to roll out a program that requires only 10-15 minutes of the manager's time per week, while potentially generating in excess of 1% same-store sales growth, is a relative no-brainer."
"What got us engaged is the fact that we were able to execute a POC with very little disturbance to the day-to-day activities of the operations team. What keeps us an enthusiastic customer is the fact that the CB4 solution provides visibility into the exact impact it has on our store sales. And the impact has been tremendous."
"CB4 leverages our own sales data to generate operational and merchandising insights that we could never achieve on our own. We could task several highly-paid individuals in our company to go around full-time and audit our items, or we can rely on CB4 to do the hard work for us, for far less cost. So that’s what we’ve done!"
“CB4 detected a top-selling item had been mistakenly cut from one of our beer sets. The craziest part is that this happened over a year ago! Using only data from the last 90 days and without knowing it had sold well in our stores, CB4 inferred it belonged in the set. Our whole management team is very impressed. CB4 is a winner.”
