Shelfgram – 12 May

12 May 2020


Consumer Packaged Good brands often struggle to understand how their products are performing, solve inconsistencies across in-store presentation, and verify the execution of store programs. Shelfgram helps them solve all of these problems and more.

Shelfgram grants brands and retailers new insights to drive new growth. The platform provides increased in-store visibility and a suite of competitive intelligence tools to better understand how products look, perform, and compete on the shelf. With Shelfgram, teams can find actionable shopper insights, monitor in-store promotions, and spot retail trends before they become trends.


Shelfgram is currently piloting their platform with J&J, KraftHeinz, Canopy and some others. They’ve also been building partnerships with data fulfillment companies such as Caddle and Field Agent.

The biggest challenge they face is ramping up Enterprise sales. They plan to overcome it by doing a lot of what’s been working for them so far – building a great product, driving organic growth, and booking demos with users on their free plan.
