Store heatmap

The electronics retailer, wanted to improve their sales and customer service by analyzing the flow of people into their stores. We created a system using Machine Learning, image detection, and face recognition. The system tracks visitors' movements and the most viewed shelves and products. This information helps the store to focus on selling popular products and to avoid unpopular ones, ultimately improving the sales process.

Step 2 of 5

Discovering and feasibility analysis

One of our core values is flexibility, hence we work with either one page high level requirements or with a full pack of tech docs.  At this stage, we need to ensure that we understand the full scope of the project. Receive from you or perform a set of interviews and prepare the following documents: list of features with detailed description and acceptance criteria; list of fields that need to be scraped, solution architecture. Ultimately we make a project plan which we strictly follow. We are a result-oriented company, and that is one of our core values as well.

Solution development

The work starts with data gathering, data cleaning and analysis. Feature engineering helps to determine your target variable and build several models for the initial review. Further modeling requires validating results and selecting models for the further development. Ultimately, we interpret the results. Nevertheless, data modeling is about a process that requires lots of back and forth iterations. We are result focused, as it’s one of our core values as well.

Success stories

Check out a few case studies that show why DATAFOREST will meet your business needs.

Stock relocation

The client was faced with the challenge of creating an optimal assortment list for more than 2,000 drugstores located in 30 different regions. They turned to us for a solution. We used a mathematical model and AI algorithms that considered location, housing density and proximity to key locations to determine an optimal assortment list for each store. By integrating with POS terminals, we were able to improve sales and help the client to streamline its product offerings.
