What is CB4?

CB4’s solution empowers store managers to correct costly execution problems in their stores, one AI-powered recommendation at a time.

Unlike traditional retail analytics, CB4 uses patented AI and machine learning algorithms to accurately detect when the most in-demand products at each store are failing to sell to their potential.

Then the solution sends each store or category manager timely recommendations to correct issues on the floor, elevate customer experience, and drive sales by up to 2%.

“CB4 identifies when we’ve got a product that’s not displayed where or how it’s supposed to be. It allows the store manager—in a very short amount of time—to go, address the issue, and then get back to serving the customer.”

How does it work?

CB4 helps brick-and-mortar retailers ensure that the products that local shoppers want are always in-stock and ready to shop and gives them an edge on the competition.

CB4’s patented AI algorithms identify products with high hyper-local consumer demand, based on previously undetectable patterns in your POS data.

CB4 sends store managers notifications when products in their stores are failing to sell to demand.

Next, CB4’s app guides store managers as they fix what’s causing low sales.

Store managers restore sales by fixing promotional errors, visual merchandising mistakes, replenishment oversights, out-of-stocks, inventory system discrepancies, and more.

Finally, store managers share the issues they find in stores in the app, and CB4 uses machine learning to create more potent recommendations over time based on their feedback.

As¸ local shoppers find and purchase the products they want most, you restore sales for the most in-demand products at each store your convenience chain.
