Most industry leaders, specifically manufacturers and retailers recognize the immense strategic value of optimized marketing messages and streamlined customer service to thrive in a competitive market. Research shows that 81% of customers are more likely to make repeat purchases after a positive customer service experience, while 72% respond favorably to marketing messages tailored exclusively to their preferences.
However, manufacturers grapple with translating complex product features into customer-friendly language and resolving feedback and assembly issues through overwhelmed call centers. Meanwhile, retailers face challenges crafting distinctive messaging for comparable products and providing personalized service amidst long wait times and overburdened agents.
Enter large language model (LLM)-powered generative AI–the promising solution that can tackle these challenges head-on. By analyzing data and creating compelling content, generative AI empowers manufacturers and retailers to deliver personalized and optimized customer experiences.
But bridging the gap between potential and reality demands expertise. This is where Grid Dynamics, a leader in deploying enterprise AI solutions with extensive experience in data science and AI, excels as your trusted partner.

Discover how we can enhance your brand's value in the competitive market through optimized marketing and seamless customer service.
As an example, imagine a machinery manufacturer with a complex catalog of products and attributes. Our solution analyses catalog data to ensure consistency and easier data organization while enriching product attributes with information from technical documents and customer feedback. This enhances the existing attributes, providing a more detailed and accurate representation of each product. The benefits are twofold. Manufacturers improve internal operations, enhancing inventory management and production planning. Additionally, data feeds shared with partners become more accurate, resulting in improved supply chain efficiency.
For retailers, proper product attribution is a game-changer on marketplaces. It elevates their presence, leading to improved discoverability, enhanced customer trust, and increased sales potential. The accuracy and detail of attributes optimize search results, drive higher conversions, and grant a competitive edge in dynamic online marketplaces.
Let's consider manufacturing and CPG companies that produce high-end furniture and hair products respectively. Instead of a mundane description like "Wooden Chair with Cushion," our LLM-based solution can create a captivating product title like "Elegant Oak Chair with Plush Velvet Cushion - Perfect Blend of Comfort and Style." Additionally, LLMs enable the personalization of product descriptions for different marketing contexts. For instance, the same chair can be described as:
Similarly for a CPG company, instead of an ordinary product description like "Organic Shampoo with Aloe Vera," our LLM-based solution can create an enchanting product title like "Revitalizing Botanical Bliss Shampoo with Nourishing Aloe Vera Extract." Moreover, LLMs enable personalized product descriptions for various marketing contexts. For instance, the same shampoo can be described as "Gentle Daily Care for Luscious Locks" in a beauty and wellness catalog, and as "Sulfate-Free Formula for Sensitive Scalps" in a targeted ad campaign for individuals with specific haircare needs. This versatility enhances customer engagement and ultimately drives sales.
For example, a customer calls the service center with a technical issue related to a specific piece of industrial machinery they purchased recently. The agent uses the conversational AI system by providing a brief text prompt or the product's model number. The AI system then retrieves detailed information about the product's specifications, operational manuals, and troubleshooting guides from the company's database. In a retail setting, if a customer inquires about expediting the delivery of their ordered product, the AI assistant can swiftly access up-to-date logistics data, enabling the agent to respond promptly and accurately while also suggesting the applicable charges, if any.
Moreover, with the conversational AI system storing customer interaction history, agents efficiently address current issues and offer tailored solutions. Implementing conversational AI enhances agent productivity, providing real-time access to crucial information for faster and more accurate support. Reduced waiting times lead to increased customer satisfaction and positive feedback.
For example, let's consider a customer who is searching for a specific forklift. They have certain requirements in terms of power, capacity, and desired features. With the help of an LLM-based shopping assistant, the customer can simply describe their needs in natural language. The assistant will not only comprehend the customer's requirements but also analyze product descriptions, specifications, and reviews to identify the most suitable options. It can provide detailed information about each product, highlighting key features, customer ratings, and any additional relevant information to aid the customer's decision-making process.
The shopping assistant can also adapt to the customer's mood and context. For instance, if the customer expresses a preference for energy-efficient options, the assistant prioritizes and recommends products that align with their sustainability criteria. The assistant engages conversationally, enabling customers to ask questions, seek clarifications, and receive personalized recommendations for their specific needs. This eliminates confusion and facilitates informed purchasing decisions.
As an example, imagine a research scientist employed by a drug manufacturer, tasked with developing a new drug formulation. This scientist requires swift access to relevant scientific literature and up-to-date clinical trial data to facilitate their research. With a conversational knowledge assistant powered by LLMs, natural language queries like "Latest clinical trial results for drug XYZ?" efficiently retrieve crucial information, enabling informed decisions and advancing pharmaceutical research.
In manufacturing, a new employee can ask the LLM-powered conversational knowledge assistant for safety procedures on heavy machinery, gaining immediate access to essential information and facilitating informed decision-making. Existing employees also benefit from reduced knowledge gaps and improved task efficiency with seamless access to critical data.
Optimized marketing messages and superior customer service play a pivotal role in bridging the gap between product and consumption in manufacturing and retail, directly impacting sales. The promising potential of generative AI and large language models offer personalized experiences, addressing these challenges in today's competitive market.
To leverage the power of generative AI for B2C, businesses must foster a data-first culture and establish infrastructure for real-time data collection, enabling accurate decision-making across the value chain. Although achieving data sophistication takes time, marketers and customer service professionals must persevere in error elimination and explore generative AI's possibilities with tailored datasets and robust logic.
