Image-Based AI Analytics

Bossa Nova worked with the world’s largest retailers to create the leading AI-based image capture and analysis engine based on the market’s broadest library of images of grocery and general merchandise products.

Let your clients see exactly what a shopper sees.

Leveraging Image-Based AI Analytics in your field or workforce management mobile app allows you to give your retail and CPG clients superpowers: that is, x-ray vision into the real-time status of their products, promos, planograms, shelves, stockrooms, and inventory.

How do we do this? Bossa Nova provides detailed product data for every image, including metadata. Our product data enables clients to analyze how well their products are performing, including comparisons. For example, clients can compare metrics such as planogram and promo execution across stores and regions.

With Bossa Nova Image-Based Analytics, you can provide real answers—not just estimates—to your retail and CPG clients. With real answers, your clients can save money, reduce inventory, avoid stock outs, increase sales, ensure adherence with contracts, improve planogram compliance, build the case for more shelf space, improve the in-store experience, customer satisfaction, and more…

Field associates, professional shoppers, “crowds”, and other agents take images of products, displays, and shelves in one or more stores.

Bossa Nova interprets the image in five seconds or less.

Bossa Nova delivers detailed product information, calculates analytics, and highlights issues.

Information about the products in an image includes:
