SodaStream is taking a leap into artificial intelligence (AI) as it looks at changing how it goes to market in the coming few years. Complexica will shortly provide SodaStream staff with capabilities for dynamic call planning, guided-selling, route optimisation, CRM, and order processing, through the deployment of its Customer Opportunity Profiler (COP), Touchless CRM, and Order Management System (OMS), which are collectively powered by Complexica’s artificial intelligence (AI) engine, Larry the Digital Analyst. While the AI solution is being rolled out for sales opportunity management initially, it is hoped the project will grow in scope to include above and below the line activities in future.
General manager of SodaStream, Mark Fenton, said as someone who loves data, he is particularly excited to see what AI can do with its database once it is fully implemented. “We used a sales-based CRM called Pepperi previously, which is appropriate for what it does, but it’s basically data collection and doesn’t have any intelligence built-in. The use of AI interested me, particularly for making smart database decisions to improve efficiency and improved rates of sales,” he told CMO.

“We are pleased to extend our partnership with Complexica into the area of Customer Relationship Management, which will provide our business with corporate memory around customer interactions, transactions, and overall engagement," said Aemel Nordin, Managing Director of Polyaire. "Over the past few years we have found Complexica to be a valued technology partner that is easy to deal with, and yet commercially focused in terms of business outcomes. This deployment will extend the functionality and footprint of the Complexica application suite within the national Polyaire operation."

Complexica Pty Ltd, a leading provider of Artificial Intelligence software for supply & demand optimisation, announced today that it has signed a contract with SodaStream Australia for the deployment of a number of software applications for optimising sales force activities and managing customer relationships and interactions within a retail execution setting. Under the contract, Complexica will provide SodaStream staff with advanced capabilities for dynamic call planning, guided-selling, route optimisation, CRM, and order processing, through the deployment of its Customer Opportunity Profiler (COP), “Touchless” CRM, and Order Management System (OMS), which are collectively powered by Complexica’s award-winning Artificial Intelligence engine, Larry, the Digital Analyst®
“SodaStream is the world’s largest manufacturer, distributor and marketer of sparkling water making systems, and Australia represents one of our highest growth markets worldwide. As such, we are always seeking ways to stay ahead of growing customer demand to ensure that our products are promptly available in an ever-increasing number of outlets throughout the country,” said Mark Fenton, CEO of SodaStream Australia. “Our products are distributed across a broad set of outlets operating under different business models, ranging from ‘big-box retailers’ to small convenience stores. This affects our ability to influence range, share-of-shelf, and stock holdings at the store level, and also adds complexity to our retail execution and field sales model. Given the rise of Artificial Intelligence and prescriptive analytics in recent times, we have partnered with Complexica to help us automatically predict the ‘next best stores’ to visit at any given time, provide each rep with the 'next best conversations' for each store, and dynamically optimise individual call plans.”
Artificial intelligence is being used by retailers across the entire product supply chain and customer service cycle, including key areas such as pricing and promotional planning. Artificial Intelligence can determine the best price for individual items using data including seasonality, price elasticity customer product preferences and purchase histories, along with real-time inputs on inventory levels and competitive products and prices. This results in more specific discounts or marginal price increases on individual SKUs to increase demand and maximise profits. Metcash’s ALM last year announced a partnership with AI provider Complexica for standardising and optimising its promotions by using its PCM capabilities to plan and analyse campaigns, along with predicting and optimising their effectiveness.
Chris Baddock has officially taken over as CEO at Australian Liquor Marketers (ALM) after being announced as Scott Marshall’s successor back in October last year. Baddock is a well credentialed executive with more than 25 years of experience, many of those in liquor, with a background on both the supplier and retailer sides. For its September issue, National Liquor News caught up with Baddock to find out a bit more about his background and what his plans are for ALM moving forward.
NLN: Can you tell me a bit about ALM’s partnership with Complexica and how that’s progressing?
It’s exciting. We’re in phase one, and phase one is going to ensure that we optimise the promotional programming for our retailers. What it’s really doing is focusing on what the consumers are purchasing today, that will help us understand what’s emerging regarding categories. And through literally hundreds of thousands of lines of data, understand what the correct mix is for both the consumer and the retailer. So, it’s giving us the optimal mix and we’ve already scoped phase two and three. That is where artificial intelligence (AI) will help us build even more effective promotional programming.
