Also, about 78% of respondents said that the pandemic made them switch to new ways to engage. Another 42% of respondents said that they are adopting new models to overcome the challenges of the pandemic.

Direct-to-Customer (D2C)

CG companies are going direct to customers by giving them special offers and bringing them to their websites. They do these special offers for data. This way, the retailers get a better understanding of customers’ preferences and shopping behaviors. For example, PepsiCo launched two eCommerce websites in 30 days to give better customer journeys quickly at times of pandemic.

Artificial Intelligence

The research also shows that 48% of CG companies will likely choose artificial intelligence in the next two years. As you know, AI helps retailers put the right products at the right time in front of the right people. In both physical and digital channels of selling.

AI helps CG companies predict the right customer behaviors, demands, needs and suggest the right products.
