The second is for the heads of the sales department. This project was supposed to provide management control over the execution of the retail store sales plan and demonstrate the personal effectiveness of the consultants. And finally, the third solution is a tool for merchandisers. It is a digital assistant for updating price tags. Its task is to check the relevance of prices for goods and their presence in the store.

In total, 300 participants, 54 teams have registered for ELDOCODE. Over the course of a week, the teams worked on prototyping the solutions described above.
