Image Recognition for Retail | Planorama in The FW500

Written by Cécile Garrett

Great news on the Plano-planet! We’re proud to be selected among the top 500 French Tech companies for the second year in a row. And we’re even prouder to announce that our ranking’s gone up since last year! 

What’s the FW500?

Every year since 2016, FrenchWeb reviews and selects the top 500 French Tech companies with the highest growth potential. For over a decade, FrenchWeb has strived to identify new trends and innovations to help companies disrupt their sector of activity and promote the French Tech internationally. As a key influencer for business decisions makers in France, the magazine decrypts the latest technologies to their 1+ million subscribers daily.

Three years ago, they launched the FW500, a prize list which highlights the fastest-growing French Tech startups, SMEs, and large businesses combined. It assesses businesses’ growth potential by according to five criteria:

  1. Annual revenue in 2017
  2. Revenue growth rate
  3. Revenue Per Employee
  4. Net profit margin
  5. Potential growth indicator (calculated based on planned recruitments and fundraising activities)

Today, the FW500 ranking is perceived as the barometer of the French Tech ecosystem. It also creates opportunities for businesses to share best practices and pass down important advice from successful entrepreneurs to early-stage startups.


Planorama in the Top Quarter of the FW500

At Planorama, we’re thrilled to be listed among the most dynamic companies of the French Tech. With a reported three-year revenue growth of 219 percent, we now rank number 117 in the FW500, 45 positions up last year’s ranking.

As the pioneers of image recognition for retail, we continuously seek to better our solutions to accompany Consumer-Packaged Goods (CPG) businesses in their ambitions to create amazing shopper-centric experiences and deliver perfect execution at the point of sale. That is why we couldn’t be prouder to see the FrenchWeb recognize once again our teams’ relentless efforts to help FMCG firms disrupt the retail world. And this is just the beginning, so stay tuned for more growth coming our way!

Speaking of… We’re hiring, so if you want to be part of the Planorama adventure, why not apply to see if we’re a match?
