UK retail company Southern Co-op and Scottish Midland Co-operative (Scotmid) have selected SymphonyAI to streamline their store operations.

The retailers will deploy SymphonyAI’s Retail CPG assortment and space planning solutions across their nearly 500 managed and franchise convenience stores in the UK.

With the implementation of SymphonyAI’s solutions, the two businesses plan to personalise the shelves, assortments and floor spaces at both the store and category levels.

SymphonyAI’s assortment optimisation solution leverages store and shelf space, basket, supply chain and market data to create customer-centric assortments for each store format.

The solution helps customers locate the right products at the right time and place.

The retailers also expect the SymphonyAI solutions to help their food teams identify and deliver insights into macro and micro-space improvements at a store level.
