19 Mar 2021

As a leading digital shopper marketing agency, we work with hundreds of CPG clients each year. Through delivering our smart ratings & reviews solution for brands in grocery supermarkets we have either worked directly with or have seen reporting on digital shelf from the top suppliers around the North America and the globe. We are also asked regularly by our clients, who do we know or would we recommend to work with on digital shelf monitoring and reporting. 

There is of course no single answer to this. There has to be a good fit between the solutions supplier and the client. A large multi-category, multi-country branded manufacturer should probably work with a supplier who can satisfy their teams across their priority countries. Similarly, if you only have one category in one country, then a smaller local player may be a perfect fit.

Below are the top grocery digital shelf reporting solution providers we are aware of and some areas for comparison to help you choose,as well as links to their sites for easy reference.

Grocery digital shelf suppliers compared:

In the table below are the top eight players we are aware of across North America & Europe. The criteria for listing is solutions providers working specifically in the grocery digital shelf arena across multiple markets and retailers including grocery retailers ie not just Amazon or the single country.

 

Who are the players?

Perhaps not surprisingly, with the relatively advanced state of grocery ecommerce in the United Kingdom, three of the providers are from there, with another two in Ireland.

Who is the biggest?

Comparable financial data is difficult to find as many are private corporations, therefore we decided to use employee numbers and their locations as indicators of overall business size. The three biggest have most employees in the USA.

What do they Specialize in?

According to our reading of their websites, these are their Top 4 areas of focus in terms of specialist solutions. All cover reporting and monitoring of the items on the digital shelf. Many also support syndication of content such as product information and imagery. All suppliers report on ratings & reviews referencing the important role this plays in shopper choice.
