“Focal Systems' out-of-stock detection through computer vision and artificial intelligence has enabled us to automatically identify shelf gaps.
Each detection is sent directly to Wakefern's proprietary mobile application which prioritizes out of stocks by department, aisle, and in-stock availability.
Our stores have seen time savings and operational improvements by incorporating the new information into their daily tasks. This early success has encouraged our members to opt into a 50 store pilot expansion this autumn.”
— Cheryl Williams - CIO, Wakefern Food Corp.
"AB has partnered with Focal Systems to track out-of-stocks for our brands in convenience stores. The data we have gathered using their technology has supported our efforts to quantify the impact of out-of-stocks and optimize product mix on the shelf. The ability to track this data continuously throughout the day has also provided us a new lever for identifying shopping trends across stores."
— Andrew Green - Director of Strategy and Innovation, Anheuser-Busch InBev
