Consumer Goods Technology (CGT) and RIS News (RIS) are excited to announce that Fractal Analytics, a global leader in artificial intelligence and analytics that powers decision-making in Fortune 500 companies, will be the Title Sponsor for the 2018 Retail and Consumer Goods Analytics Summit.
The 5th Annual Retail & Consumer Goods Analytics Summit (“RCAS”) will be held April 25-27, 2018, at The Drake in Chicago, IL. This event brings together retailers and consumer goods executives to discuss ways to better leverage analytics to improve collaboration and consumer engagement. Retailers and consumer goods executives both gain insights into techniques, technologies, and best practices that will improve sales and marketing, merchandising, supply chain, new product development and other key business initiatives.
For consumer goods and retail organizations, Fractal Analytics can identify future consumer and shopper needs, as well as market trends, through a trifecta of enterprise capabilities: augmented intelligence, artificial intelligence and behavioral science.
Fractal Analytics will be at RCAS to share recent, impressive work in artificial intelligence and machine learning, as well as in behavioral sciences. Fractal will present specific cases from the industry’s largest brands, showcasing how their technology and expertise have been used to drive positive results in the form of more sales, reduced costs, and beyond.
The consumer goods and retail industry is in the throes of a transformation as business models are reimagined based on demand creation and profitable growth. Fractal Analytics is experiencing this change first hand working with their clients.
“This is the right opportunity for analytics to lead the transformation and create profitable growth,” said Amitabh Bose, Chief Practice Officer, CPG & Retail, Fractal Analytics. “In our experience, the trifecta for leading this transformation have been i) digitizing data to augment business intelligence, ii) AI & ML applications for speed and scale, iii) applications of behavioral sciences in bridging the awareness action gap with consumers. We look forward to the event as a great learning place for sharing collective experiences and driving change in the industry.”
Albert Guffanti, Brand Director of CGT, said that having Fractal Analytics as Title Sponsor “brings a great deal of value to RCAS attendees: executives in the CG industry who are interested in finding ways to reach consumers more quickly, more profitably, and in highly personalized ways. Fractal Analytics can provide attendees with practical tools to do exactly that.”
