Advantages of big data and analytics for the food industry companies:
Improve operational efficiency
Big data and analytics play a crucial role in the growth of food industry companies. Big data management improves operational efficiency by analyzing the customers’ behavior using their shopping data and helps in the implementation of predictive analytics to calculate the average checkout wait time. This assists food industry companies to enhance their operational efficiency and deliver the best services to their customers. Also, big data and analytics assists companies in analyzing market trends and suggest optimum inventory levels food industry companies need to maintain at different locations.
Boost on-time delivery
Food industry companies necessarily need to optimize the food delivery mechanism to enhance their on-time delivery services. Companies leverage big data and analytics to collect data from various sources like weather, road traffic, route, temperature etc. and provide a proper estimate for the time taken to deliver goods. Also, big data and analytics can predict the impact of all the above factors on the quality of food by the time it reaches customers. Thus, big data analysis ensures that companies invest their resources in transporting the food products that reach customers in good quality rather than investing in transporting stale products.
Better customer sentiment analysis
Sentiment analysis is the process of monitoring customer emotions over social media networks. Using data tools, food industry companies can analyze consumer behavior into positive, negative, or neutral. This application of big data and analytics can help companies to analyze their customer emotions on a scale. Moreover, any negative review can be analyzed at scale and preventive measures can be taken to prevent the spread of negative feelings. This technique is highly beneficial for large-scale food retailers like McDonald’s, KFC, PizzaHut etc.
