Enterprise-grade, scalable AI for global Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG) firms.

Develop repeatable and high-impact solutions to power your global strategy, all the way to the last mile with focused CPG data analytics and artificial intelligence consulting.

Challenges

CPG brands experienced significant growth during the pandemic: more absolute growth in 2020 vs. 2016 to 2019. However to sustain growth, CPG companies must embrace elastic strategies to align with changing consumer behaviors and compete with data-driven digital natives with tech prowess.

In the battle for market share, large players are creating and buying new brands. They are rapidly investing in emerging technologies like AI and ML. However, their AI solution gets outdated before it is even operationalized for them.

Inability to consolidate data from across the CPG value chain.

Across ERPs, CRMs and other tech solutions, data is typically stuck in silos. It is expensive to build an AI solution for each market; and non-scalable globally.

Struggle to make sense of data from heterogenous markets.

Even global CPG companies have 1000s of localizations for each market — in products as well as operating models. AI solutions fail to accommodate these customizations meaningfully.

Insights from analytics solutions not leading to actions.

The dashboards and playbooks presented by most analytics solutions are complex and overwhelming to end-users. Without prescriptive recommendations, they’re not actionable.

How we help CPG enterprises?

CPG enterprises need global scalability. You need AI partners who have a clear and nuanced understanding of your customers and markets. You need prescriptive recommendations that inspire action. You need Tredence.
