reduce wastage retail it company analytics
Problem statement

A large food retailer in the UK was spending vast amounts of time performing manual checks of ‘Date Expire Food’, to both the front of the store and the back storage area. Although this met strict compliance regulations and reduced wastage, the labour-intensive activities were having a negative impact on productivity.


The Cloudaeon team quickly redesigned the whole process with store-specific fully automated actionable insights. This meant every store had a unique system and set of procedures which met their own individual requirements.


Once the system was implemented, the stores experienced impressive results including a saving of £1.056m on labour costs and the redeployment of labour. The system also provided increased visibility of the out of date products, which resulted in less waste and also an increase in profits through price reductions rather than disposal of spoiled items.
