This month at Peak: April 2021

By Jon Taylor on April 30, 2021

Another month is just about boxed off, and we’ve got a few cool bits to shout about in our latest This month at Peak blog!

Read on to find out what we’ve got planned with the kings of fried chicken, check out our snazzy new platform explainer video, and learn just how much your business can achieve in as little as 21 days…

What’s new at Peak?

? Feeling hungry? You will be after reading our latest customer announcement! We’re thrilled to have partnered with the one and only KFC UK & Ireland – we’ve teamed up to help the world-famous brand unlock more value from its restaurant and core menu data with Decision Intelligence. It’s all about enhancing the guest experience, optimizing menu performance, and improving operational efficiency. You can learn more here.

? Our journey with the lovely bunch at Tech Nation continues! We’ve been selected to join a handful of other businesses on the Future Fifty 9.0 programme; a powerful network of the UK’s leading late-stage tech companies. It’s another exciting milestone for Peak, and we can’t wait to get started. Find out more here.

⚙️ A new case study landed on the Peak website this month, detailing our ongoing work with the good people at Essentra Components! We’re helping the global components manufacturer optimize performance of its transactional websites. You can learn how we’re getting on here.

? Our Director of Manufacturing, Will Dutton, wrote a great piece for Top Business Tech magazine, explaining how AI is helping to provide businesses with supply chain agility in a turbulent climate. You can read his thoughts here.

? This month’s Peak end of quarter event was all about closing our laptops, spending some time in the sunshine, and meeting up with colleagues old and new in the great outdoors. We met up in groups of up to six to adhere to government guidelines, and it made for a brilliant day after over a year of remote working. See some of the pics on our LinkedIn account here.

? 21 days. That’s how long it’ll take Peak and AWS to demonstrate just how much Decision Intelligence and Amazon Personalize can boost revenue, increase purchase frequency and order value, and help you find more customers. Don’t believe us? Sign up for our 21 Day Personalize Challenge and we’ll show you what we can do!

? Our Retail Director, Tom Summerfield, wrote this great piece for IT Pro Portal outlining the importance of inventory optimization for retailers looking to get back on track after a turbulent period. Check out the article here.

? Tom was busy this month, as he also made a guest appearance on the CX Podcast! Watch him chat all things Decision Intelligence and customer experience here.

?? Here’s something very cool! We issued our first ever Hindi press release, highlighting our plans to further grow our presence and our team in Jaipur. Read it here (if you can read Hindi! ?) 

Events updates

? Details of our next Peak Ensemble have now been announced – and it’s going to be a good ‘un! Sagar Sahasrabudhe, Director Data Science at Grubhub will be joining us on Wednesday 19 May to discuss decision automation at scale, and how the leading US online food delivery company uses data and quantitative models to power the systems that make those decisions. You can sign up for free here.
