Coles, the Australian supermarket giant, strikes a deal with Relex Solutions to implement a cloud-based artificial intelligence platform to revolutionize fresh produce stock replenishment. The retailer will interweave the AI technology with its existing in-house analytics forecasting solution.
Relex Solutions is set to install across more than 850 supermarkets nationally and seven fresh product distribution centers. The goal is not only to automate the produce replenishment process and reduce food waste, but also to improve stock order forecasts through various factors such as weather, past purchases, and local community events.
Other notable benefits from the AI-based replenishment system include fresher products, improved customer experiences through targeted ranges, improved availability, and simpler processes for Coles' team members.
