"The c-store space appears unscathed from the headlines warning of the 'death of retail,'" said Matthew McAlister, Director of Marketing at CB4. "With the majority of operations teams expecting significant growth throughout 2019 and receiving higher budgets, the focus on customer experience seems to be paying off in a very big way."
The industry is, however, battling some persistent challenges including staffing, inventory management, operational issues, and more. The newfound focus on technology, specifically machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI) tools, are proving increasingly useful in providing c-stores with solutions to chronic issues.
CB4's patented machine-learning solution detects unmet demand opportunities in individual brick-and-mortar stores at a SKU level. These opportunities are translated into actionable recommendations and sent to the relevant store teams, along with guidance on how to capture the missed opportunity and improve customer experience. The software requires no hardware installation and most customers are up and running in a single day. CB4's is proud to service a range of c-store clients, including Dash In, QuickChek, High's of Baltimore, and many more. For additional information, visit www.cb4.com.
