Everseen, the Visual AI™ company driving customer engagement and profitability for the world’s largest retailers, today announces its selection by The Kroger Co., America’s largest grocery retailer, to contribute to the grocer’s plan to redefine the customer experience. Everseen’s technology began rolling out at Kroger stores in March and will continue to be installed in the coming months, with plans to deploy the technology at 2,500 stores across the country.
Everseen, which specializes in optimizing in-store processes, works to minimize moments of friction that customers encounter during the checkout experience. Everseen’s technology is aimed at reducing errors that customers occasionally experience at self-checkout, enabling customers to self-correct those errors. The result is a better customer experience and an increase in employee efficiency.
“We are laser-focused on continuous improvements to customers’ experience across our stores,” said Mike Lamb, Vice President of Asset Protection at The Kroger Co. “By leveraging Everseen’s Visual AI and machine learning technology, we’re not only able to remove friction for the customer, but we can also remove controllable costs from the business and redirect those resources to improving the customer experience even more.”
“Everseen’s unique Visual AI technology is transforming the way retailers can manage their end-to-end operations to drive perpetual inventory accuracy, prevent stock loss, and empower autonomous processes,” said Chris Taylor, Chief Sales Officer at Everseen. “Ultimately, our job is to take a customer-first approach to making retailers such as Kroger more efficient and profitable.”
Everseen was recently included in the Gartner Hype Cycle for Retail Technologies for the fourth year in a row. Everseen was recognized in three retail categories in Gartner’s Hype Cycle for Retail Technologies, 2020: AI in Retail, Computer Vision and Smart Checkout.
The Kroger Co. employs nearly half a million associates and serves 11 million customers daily through a seamless shopping experience under a variety of banner names. To learn more, visit the company’s newsroom and investor relations site.
