Speaking to the 2019 Annual Leaders Forum edition of National Liquor News, Rod Pritchard the Interim CEO of ALM detailed the great shape the business is in and how it aims to continue delivering sustainable growth for its independents into 2019.
When asked how he planned on continuing to build and improve the IBA network into 2019, Rod answered: “Our IBA offer is fully focused on delivering against the needs of our shoppers. We tailor our offer for each of our retail banners in the IBA network, to best meet the changing shopper expectations across the various retail channels that exist in the market. We utilise the shopper insights and data that we have at our disposal to make informed ranging and programming decisions, and to fine tune our offer accordingly. We recently announced our partnership with Complexica – who are experts in the artificial intelligence field – and we will be rolling out the new promotions platform that they have developed for us in the first quarter of 2019. This is a particularly exciting initiative for us, and we expect our retailers and suppliers to mutually benefit from the outputs of the new platform.”
