Almanac has been voted as the best AI & Machine Learning product of 2020 in Product Hunt’s Golden Kitty Awards by helping retailers predict consumer behavior and adapt to the challenging environment surrounding the global pandemic.
The Golden Kitty awards are one of the most prestigious awards in tech and consider over 100,000 votes from around the world, helping to identify the brightest businesses that have launched in 2020. This year’s awards were contested by over 16,000 companies from around the world, making it one of the most competitive years for product innovation.
Almanac is leveraging the power of AI and Machine Learning to help predict consumer behavior. By providing a snapshot into how consumers will behave, they are allowing brick and mortar businesses to compete in challenging times.
The Almanac platform combines a powerful set of tools for retailers to cut down on budgets, plan resources effectively, and increase their sales using cutting-edge AI tech that processes over a billion data points each day.
The award validates the idea that small, real-world businesses can leverage the power of AI to transform their performance without needing highly technical knowledge. With these tools at their disposal, retailers can now understand the many factors that motivate consumers to visit and purchase in the real world.
Sam Amrani, the founder & CEO of the company, was delighted with the award, stating, “We’ve felt this is a real gamechanger for the retail industry for some time, and it’s great to have that confirmed with such a highly regarded award. We want to help the smaller businesses navigate this pandemic by saving money, increasing retention, and driving sales. Almanac is delivering this for the offline world and bridging the gap to online stores.”
The award marks a productive 2020 for the company, having been finalists in the Lloyd’s National Business Awards. The company hopes to move forward and capitalize on this success by shipping its award-winning product to the UK market.
