FORM’s image recognition and photo reporting technology is the smartest way for Consumer Goods brands to improve merchandising execution across locations. Using the app, brands have reported performing merchandising audits 75% faster than manual methods or home-grown solutions. Customers use FORM to get instant visual confirmation of merchandising with AI-powered photo reporting software, which automatically tags and segments SKUs by location, category, and more. Retail teams can also use Image Recognition to quickly identify out-of-stocks and voids.
SKU-level reporting automatically attributes products to their position on the shelf, giving leaders visibility into product placement, position, and price at each account. This data enables Consumer Goods brands, distributors, and retailers to understand what should be in place, what is currently in place, and how to optimize it in real-time–ensuring valuable agreements are being upheld and executed with precision for a Perfect Store.
Yes, Image Recognition by FORM can identify products displayed on in-set, in-line, on-shelf, and endcap displays, and can identify voids and out of stocks. SKU-level reporting automatically attributes products to their position on the shelf, providing insights into product placement, position, and price.
Image Recognition is fully-integrated with FORM’s task management and insights platform to provide a turnkey solution for sending, tracking, and reporting on data captured by reps in the field. Leaders use FORM’s task management solution to create, send, and schedule tasks using 12 different task types, including image recognition, unique to location and user. Users receive these tasks by opening the FORM app on their mobile device and viewing which tasks are available for the location they’re visiting.
Tasks that include image recognition will prompt the user to take photos of the displays or menus requested. Once photos are captured, our machine-learning models instantly identify products that appear in the image, and append SKU-level data to each item pictured. In minutes, users will receive reporting on their device after submitting photos, and leaders will receive granular SKU-level reporting to their insights dashboard on desktop for easy viewing, analyzing, and sharing.
The benefits of image recognition are speed, accuracy, and almost zero manual input. Within 2 minutes and in a few pictures, our sales reps know the exact percentage of LRB category, and the exact SKUs of every item in the cooler. From a compliance standpoint, the biggest win is that we now have an electronic way to audit a store and take a planogram picture.
We can look at the retailers and see which ones are achieving our goals, which ones aren't, and then provide valuable feedback to the managers so when they do the next go-round of planograms, they can use that information and have a benchmark on how to improve or keep growing.
After implementing GoSpotCheck the JOH team spent 56% less time collecting data and creating reports — time which was then used to build relationships with retailers, secure additional display placements, and drive more business.
We’re hitting every single KPI with this platform–sales, margin, shrink, loss prevention, labor, and more. We believe it’s also leading to reduced turnover, greater productivity, better customer service, and generally a better workplace culture.
