Our 400 Ai2 experts unlock data to provide powerful insights and create custom business plans that shape long-term strategies, delivering measurable results and a quantifiable return on investment.

CATEGORY LEADERSHIP

The Ai2 team leverages a proven analytic process focused on the 4 Ps that determine sales performance: price, product, place and promotion. Category experts collaborate with clients to develop solutions that align with — and strengthen — retailers’ category performance.

SHOPPER INSIGHTS

Connecting with today’s shoppers requires a mastery of the dynamics that influence behavior. Ai2’s shopper insights team members are fluent in syndicated and retailer-specific data. Our experts produce innovative, best-in-class solutions that help clients to fully understand the connection between products, shoppers and stores and between shopper behavior and sales performance and to activate the most effective targeted strategies.

By combining data simplification with a proprietary analytic workflow, Adlumina™ delivers high-impact insights faster and more effectively than ever before.
