More Retailers Tapping AI for Marketing and Sales: Survey

Customer service and supply chain management also on the list for AI investment.





Retail and consumer packaged goods executives are planning to invest in artificial intelligence tools across multiple business operations, according to a recent survey sponsored by Carl Marks Advisors. The executives surveyed are from retailers and CPG firms reporting between $25 million and $300 million in revenue.

Of the executives surveyed:

  • More than half will invest in AI for marketing (56 percent) and financial forecasting (52 percent)
  • More than a third (34 percent) plan to invest in AI for customer service and user experience and for supply chain management.

In addition, 40 percent of the executives participating in the survey reported that they expect their sales to grow this year.

At first it was just an idea: Animal supplements needed the same quality control that human-grade supplements receive. But that was enough to start a movement and an organization —the National Animal Supplement Council — that would be dedicated to establishing a comprehensive path forward for the animal supplements industry. In this Media Spotlight interview, NASC’s president, Bill Bookout, talks to PETS+ interviewer Chloe DiVita about the industry today: Where it’s headed, what’s the latest focus and why it’s vital to gain the involvement of independent pet product retailers.
