Proudly based in Toronto, Rubikloud started with the belief that artificial intelligence and cloud infrastructure could be properly productized to solve some of the most complex industry problems in the world. For Rubikloud, we chose to focus on the transformational industries of Retail and CPG. We started with a vision, a puppy named Charlie, and on a very beige couch in a very small apartment.
Fast-forward to today and the couch and apartment are long gone. We’ve grown quickly to now include nearly 100 Rubikrew with expertise in AI and machine learning, enterprise software engineering, retail product development, and retail customer experience.
We partner with retailers and CPG companies on their end-to-end digital transformation journey to AI. Our thesis is centered around a 4-staged approach that introduces the benefits of AI into your company, with the goal of fully automating specific, workload intense business decisions.
We first incorporate world-leading Machine Learning (ML) models to handle your data complexity and sparsity to produce highly accurate forecasts at a Store-SKU level. The next stage is an agile approach to customization where we generate tailored insights regarding promotion effectiveness, inventory availability, and missed opportunity. The third stage intertwines ML with human intervention by evaluating potential promotions with forward-looking scenario modelling. The end state is a fully automated decision-making engine that builds a constraint-based promotional calendar.
Our goal is to continue developing industry-leading AI solutions that automate mass demand and promotional planning, reduce the inherent complexity of labor-intense forecasting and optimization tasks, and minimize the disruption from change management.
We purposefully research and invest in the development and consumption of ML and AI solutions that address industry-specific challenges for multimillion-dollar retail and consumers brands globally.
