SAN FRANCISCO -- November 14, 2019 -- Bossa Nova, the leading data service provider for global retailers, today announced the launch of Bossa Nova 2020, a new solution for inventory data management powered by AI and automation. Bossa Nova 2020 gives retailers Real-Time State of the Store™ insights, providing business intelligence for brick and mortar stores to streamline operations and optimize the customer experience.
Retailers of all shapes and sizes require a seamless supply chain with insights into on-shelf inventory. Prior to the launch, automation tools were only available to large-scale stores, however, Bossa Nova 2020’s slimmer form factor is designed to navigate the narrow aisles and openings of medium and small-format stores. Furthermore, by expanding intelligence capabilities into fresh food, frozen food, and apparel departments, Bossa Nova 2020 is the first solution in the retail industry to provide inventory insights for the entire store, regardless of size.
Bossa Nova 2020’s advanced, smart 2D and 3D camera system combined with an industry-leading AI stack delivers more reliable and accurate data to retailers. The all-new, custom-designed camera with multi-focus, high-speed and high-resolution optics sees the full depth of shelves so retailers can capture more information with each pass of the aisle. Image processing starts on the camera itself and ends with AI in the cloud, enabling even faster and more accurate insights.
“Bossa Nova 2020 is the culmination of six years of retail experience, 55 petabytes of data collected, and one million aisles analyzed,” said Sarjoun Skaff, co-founder and chief technology officer at Bossa Nova. “Bossa Nova provides business intelligence for retail, and we are so proud to have some of the world's largest retailers trust us to answer their toughest questions. By expanding analytics to the whole store and giving medium and small-format retailers the same real-time visibility into shelf insights, we’re empowering retailers globally with data to redesign their store operations.”
In addition, Bossa Nova 2020 has been developed with simplified assembly, high reliability, and ease of servicing in mind. This ensures data is available to more stores so retailers can further streamline store processes, improve product availability, and increase customer satisfaction.
Bossa Nova 2020 will be available to view at NRF 2020. For more information, visit Bossa Nova.
