daco (https://www.daco.io) is the first to offer powerful tools based on high-end technology to help retailers to understand their competitive environment, all year long.
We have created a cutting-edge image recognition technology based on artificial intelligence, over-passing classic deep neural network performance, to make sure that it will be able to recognize the most complex products.
Using these proprietary algorithms, we provide comprehensive dashboards that allow to drill down all competition strategies, all year long, and help our clients to pre-empt leadership.
We differentiate from any other companies by our expertise in strategy consulting, top management interactions and strong willingness to achieve measurable results.
We created daco starting from a simple finding: growth was, is and will be the number 1 stake of all retailers. For a brand or a distributor, achieving growth in a stable market requires to know all about competition or distributors, in order to gain market share: a know-how still missing today.
Growth pillars (like-for-like and expansion) are offer, pricing, discount and store network. Retailers have to monitor all of them on a daily basis to take the right decisions and gain market share.
Today, retailers have a very limited vision on what their competitors do. Imagine the strength of a retailer that could be able to crack all about its competition: offer mapping, comparable products, pricing & discount policies to the penny and store network evolution : this vision is now possible thanks to solutions developed by daco. Our ambition is to be as close as possible to the markets we are serving. We thus created an array of partnerships to secure the business and technical relevance of our products, and use the past experience of our founders, who are former strategy consultants or engineers, specialized in retail and data processing.
