Written by Othilie Nicod

As you may know already, at Planorama, we’re always looking for opportunities to make our clients’ life easier. That’s why we're really excited to announce a new partnership with Phoenix-based AFS Technologies.

What is AFS Technologies?

AFS Technologies (AFS) is a leading company in software solutions for the consumer goods industry. AFS delivers innovative solutions that are proven to optimize their clients' potential with automated processes, improved productivity and rapid time to value.

The company is committed to generating improved outcomes at the point of purchase coupled with generating efficiencies in trade spend, retail execution and supply chain. They have an impressive track record: 30 years of experience, more than 1,300 customers of all sizes, in over 50 countries.

How will Planorama help?

Based on shelf pictures from any source, our image recognition solution can instantly analyze and recognize millions of product items and deliver immediate actionable retail insights for their clients and their teams.  But here comes the magic: our solution is now integrated with the AFS retail execution solution to create a single, end-to-end solution for POS execution, allowing companies to achieve perfect store execution while gaining exponential value regarding speed, visibility, and sales.

Joe Bellini, CEO at AFS Technologies, considers this partnership and integration a step improvement in market capabilities. By capturing and responding to key insights at the point of purchase, CPGs will be able to deliver optimal product assortments, increase sales, reduce out of stocks and improve the overall agility and integrity of sales, merchandising and supply chain processes.

We at Planorama are really excited to bring our unique image recognition technology to AFS Technologies’ clients worldwide. The combination of our AI-powered real-time shelf analysis with AFS Retail execution mobile, flexible and robust software solution will allow manufacturers to take a new step towards digitalizing their retail execution process while ensuring a great user experience.

Since 2009, we've been analyzing millions of photos for more than 10,000 daily users, but we're still excited to build partnerships like these and to bring our cutting-edge technology to more customers, more countries, more cities, and more stores.
