1,400+ retail stores turn to Artificial Intelligence software to improve promotional programs and campaigns
Complexica Pty Ltd, a leading provider of Artificial Intelligence software that helps organisations sell more products and services, and reduce their labour costs and head count, announced today that it has been working with Liquor Marketing Group to deliver a major IT initiative for the business, dubbed “Project Automate.”
“The goal of Project Automate is to increase the quality, timeliness, and effectiveness of our promotional campaigns, as well as the financial outcomes achieved by our retail stores. We see the project as a key stepping stone to becoming best in class when it comes to promotional effectiveness at a retail level,” said Gavin Saunders, Finance Director of Liquor Marketing Group. “Working with Complexica to deliver Project Automate has been a true partnership from the initial stages of analysis of LMG’s existing processes and data handling, through scoping and development phase and onto delivery and process change adoption. The Complexica team have delivered considerable value at each stage and will continue to be a valued partner to LMG”.

Project Automate will centralise and automate a wide variety of complex analytical tasks associated with the process of building effective promotional campaigns for more than 1,400 retail stores. The project will provide:
- Automated data loading and handling, interpretation, and analysis of the purchase history and scan data of more than 25,000 SKUs;
- Automated analytics for illustrating the effectiveness of promotional campaigns in previous time periods; and
- Robust analytical capabilities required by LMG’s head and state offices to share promotional campaign activities with its retail stores and liquor suppliers.
Project Automate will interface with LMG’s data warehouse to access store-level purchase history and scan data, so that LMG staff can build promotional campaigns and pricing on a product, product group, and region level. The project will also replace the current promotional processes and systems used by LMG, which are based on a variety of spreadsheets and ad-hoc reports.
