It took radio 38 years to reach 50 million global users. Television took 14 years to reach 50 million users around the world. The internet took 4 years to achieve the same benchmark. Facebook 3.6 years. The ubiquitous iPhone: 2.8 years. The iPad achieved 50 million global users in 18 months. The Angry Birds app was downloaded by 50 million people in 35 days. These examples provide some hint of the accelerating pace of technology adoption. And, to use an oft quoted line, “You ain’t seen nothing yet.”
The retail industry is entering uncharted territory as technology-fueled innovation explodes across every part of the supply chain, from product manufacturing (think 3D printed food) to distribution (self-driving cars or drones) to realtime marketing to the individual shopper (iBeacons done right).
The disruptive power of innovation is amplified as technologies collide and combine to enable new capabilities. The nebulous Internet of Things (IoT) is now a stark reality for the consumer goods industry since Amazon recently announced a group of home appliance makers have integrated to its Dash Replenishment Service, enabling the automatic reordering of household consumables, no human required.
So what’s fueling this flood of innovation? Four underlying, synergistic technology trends.

Merchandising and marketing professionals can gain a competitive advantage and use tools similar to those that on-line businesses have used for years to measure the effectiveness of various strategies.
From a marketing perspective, understanding the effectiveness of various campaigns as compared to each other and year over year are critical. Understanding which sales levers are being activated by each campaign can help drive store and company performance. Driving traffic, average spend and conversion are important components to help build a variety of marketing initiatives like new acquisition, brand loyalty, or higher customer spend.
Merchandising effectiveness is equally important in understanding customer responsiveness to a particular product or display. Specific, factual data allow retailers to optimize displays, resulting in better sales and profit performance. RetailNext allows measurable data points with clear visibility into the full path of purchase, starting from the outside store environment with the windows through the journey inside the store, including departments, aisles, displays, fixtures, and end-caps.
The supermarket industry is increasingly driven by innovation - one has to look no further than Amazon’s impact as a catalyst to the industry moving online, new services, and capabilities. Self-shopping, in-home and in-car delivery, voice-based commerce, and more are all areas of innovation that are transforming the industry.
One of the major challenges traditional retailers of any size have is simply trying to be aware of what new innovation is coming into the industry. To put this in perspective: Walmart recently created a new subsidiary called Store No. 8 to focus on discovering and investing in new key technologies like AI and automation. The Store No. 8 team reviews around 750 new solutions each year. The CART team is currently reviewing an estimated 1,200 new solutions each year - about 100 per month. That’s the pace tech-fueled innovation is moving at and every day that goes on the innovation gap is growing larger.
One way CART is helping traditional retailers learn about powerful new capabilities is through the twice a year Pitch Event. This year we’re doing something new, opening up the pitch event as a live webcast to members of the industry to participate. Held this year in partnership with Winsight Grocery Business and sponsored by dunnhumby, the CART Retail Innovation Pitch Event will be held Tuesday, May 15, at 2pm Eastern.
CART has sorted through the hundreds of applicants to the pitch event to focus in on a handful of compelling and powerful new capabilities for retailers. This is a great way for all members of the industry - retailers, wholesalers, and brand manufacturers - to learn about new capabilities coming into the industry and have an opportunity to hear directly from these innovators as they pitch their solutions.
Supermarket retailers now find themselves on a new playing field, competing with some of the world’s leading technology companies and having to respond to fast consumer adoption of new technologies. The CART Retail Innovation Pitch Webcast is the way to efficiently gain insight to what’s coming.
We look forward to having you join us for this special industry event!
Ethylene is a naturally-occurring hydrocarbon gas that acts as a ripening agent for fruits, vegetables and plants. This gas regulates fruit ripening, vegetable decay, flower opening and leaf shedding.
Ethylene gas is used in two ways: to preserve products to slow down the decay process, and to ripen produce to increase vibrancy before the product is moved to a cold storage room.
This is why Prodew has created an ethylene system designed to bring consumers the best product possible. Prodew offers a series of ethylene control products to fit all your needs.
