This prestigious competition awards the best and most innovative companies that are partners with Microsoft in Czechia and Slovakia.

“Strategic and operational decisions based on hard data are the basic need for every industry, including retail. The clear trend now is Augmented analytics that pushes it to another level, meaning more automation and putting data into a more complex retail environment. It is clear now that beyond Augmented analytics retailers will have to adapt to using AI/ML solutions to predict the impact of their decisions, not only in pricing. This development also includes a higher demand for the availability of computing power.” Jiří Psota, CTO, Yieldigo.
“Thanks to the speed and agility of the Yieldigo AI platform, we were able to immediately react to many key factors in the recent COVID-19 turbulent situation. Yieldigo made our pricing decisions much easier, but above all, it reflected our customer in the full context, which is essential for us.”
Tomáš Jeřábek, CEO.
