Ganit will deploy its technology module across 2,000 Aditya Birla MORE retail stores in the next two months, across Bangalore and Pune.

“This solution reduced the daily wastage of the fresh fruit and vegetable division by 20 per cent and an average of ₹70 lakh was saved on a month on month basis across 119 MORE stores in Bangalore and Pune where it was tested,” said Shivaprasad KT, CEO, Ganit Inc.

Driven by strong macroeconomic factors, India, at present, is the fourth-largest retail market in the world. wy

Further, the industry is likely to grow from $790 billion in FY2019 to $1.4 trillion by the end of 2024, according to a recent report prepared by Boston Consulting Group in collaboration with Retailers Association of India.

Retail intelligence platforms will lead the technology pack to provide the data insights required by these enterprises to match consumer demand, increase outlet coverage, and motivate field teams to ensure both satisfied retailers and consumers, say industry watchers.
