Complexica Pty Ltd, a leading provider of Artificial Intelligence software for supply & demand optimisation, announced today that it has signed a contract with Costa Group to deploy Complexica’s Order Management System (OMS) to enable customer 'Click and Collect’ self service within a wholesale market trading context.
This capability is the first foundational component of the Omnichannel strategy which Complexica developed together with Costa Group in early 2019. Phase 1 will allow Costa Group’s customers to place orders online, as well digitise and automate many internal market floor operational processes for order management and inventory control. Phase 2 will bring intelligent product and pricing recommendations to the 'Click and Collect’ application, powered by Complexica’s award winning AI engine, Larry, the Digital Analyst®
“After a successful strategy engagement to develop an end-state digital vision and roadmap, and some further software specification work, we have now partnered with Complexica to deploy Click and Collect first in our Brisbane market, and then nationally. We have taken an approach of digitisation, followed by automation, followed by optimisation which we expect to enable success and minimise our change management risk”, said Damian Bourne, General Manager of Costa Group Farms & Logistics. “We have greatly enjoyed working with the team at Complexica and look forward to a successful deployment and national rollout”.

If Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been around as a concept for 50 years, why is it only becoming prominent now? According to Complexica’s CEO, Matt Michalewicz, the two key drivers have been improvements in business and technology. Businesses have more digitalised processes than in the past, and this has assisted the growth of AI. Technologically, computer power has become cheaper, and the data to train AI is readily available with the explosion of the internet. The capabilities and algorithms of AI have improved to incorporate ‘deep learning’; considering what consumers see and what they say using their natural language, to recognise patterns in how they think. AI and machine learning automates analysis. It makes assumptions, assesses models and re-evaluates data to provide detailed predictions at speed and scale, without human intervention. It learns from itself, with predictions becoming increasingly accurate and more specific over time.
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.
