A success story that is transforming the retail industry

aifora was founded in February 2018 with the vision of connecting retailers to jointly counterbalance the increasing supremacy of the leading online players. The idea was born out of a successful cooperation between Thomas Jesewski and David Krings – two ambitious entrepreneurs in the fields of retail consulting and data science. 

As they recognized the ongoing struggle retailers face to survive, the two aifora founders set out to change the future of retail with powerful AI-driven solutions.

Today, we are a growing team of retail, IT and data science experts with a passion for solving complex problems and providing outstanding service to our clients. Our team is diverse and unconventional, but we are united by one common mission and the aifora spirit. Together we have proven that we can enable retailers to significantly optimize their business.
With aifora, retailers are back at eye level with Amazon & Co. through collaborative learning, AI and outstanding solutions.
Thomas Jesewski Gründer CEO

We enable retailers to realize their full potential with our data sharing and AI platform. We understand the needs of the retail industry well, because aifora originally came from the industry itself and developed the platform with many years of retail experience in mind.

Retailers are often too busy managing basic processes such as inventory management and pricing. We want to optimize and automate precisely these processes so that retailers can concentrate on the essentials, namely the customer experience. Retailers already have a vast amount of data. The challenge is to analyze this data and draw the right insights to optimally manage prices and inventory.
