84.51° Collaborative Cloud delivers for one of North America’s leading branded food companies
After the arrival of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 impacted every aspect of the grocery industry, from supply chain issues to shopper behavior, Conagra Brands’ data science team turned to 84.51° Collaborative Cloud to make sense of their 2021 forecast, evaluate shopping behavior changes across numerous commodities and predict which new behaviors would stick. The transaction-level data with built-in privacy controls has enabled the team to present better demand projections for their portfolio, make more informed assumptions about demand for innovation, and make smarter decisions on production levels, shopper retention efforts and other marketing spend—all of which have helped Conagra Brands attract and retain new brand buyers at disproportionately high numbers.
“More than a platform, 84.51°Collaborative Cloud is a partnership bringing together a client’s business leaders and data science team with our own experts, backed by 20 years of data science experience,” Kelly continued. “The client decides what transactions they want, what to include from those transactions and how they want to be able to tie transactions together, and we build an individual environment to meet those priorities. From that point, we offer a flexible engagement model that can range from answering questions and providing guidance as the client needs it to having our own experts work shoulder-to-shoulder with the client team to co-develop science within the platform.”
