Self Learning Bakery and the Seamless Store
For the majority of bakeries production planning is something that falls low on the list of priorities. As a result retailers are over producing baked goods leading to huge amounts of waste and lost sales. The Self Learning Bakery is a product created by Market Hub that gives retailers the opportunity to fully automate in-store bakeries. It analyses patterns in production, sales, waste and promotions and from this generates discount schedules; minimising waste, optimising sales and ultimately increasing profits.
How does the Self Learning Bakery work?
- The Baker is given a weekly bake plan.
- The Baker logs details of what they baked in the Self Learning app. Based on sales of baked goods.
- The Self Learning Bakery suggests the optimum time for in-day discounting to maximise sales and minimise waste.
- From this a discount schedule is generated and sent directly to the retailers Point of Sale.
- As closing time nears the electronic shelf labels update prices and highlight discount offers on specific SKU’s.

Here’s What Our Customers Are Saying
“I started using Pulse in my forecourt shop in July 2016. Within weeks I was so impressed with the results that I had it ordered for my other two stores.
It’s an essential management tool, one we use everyday. PULSE has produced tangible benefits in terms of waste control and stock management. One of our stores saw a 70% reduction in waste following installation.Louis Byrne
“Market Hub is a huge part of what makes us different. It has helped reduced wastage at our Hackney SPAR store to below 2% and at the same time it has helped us increase our store margin to in excess of 30% GP.
Market Hub identifies any products that are taking over 12 weeks to sell, then we can we reduce these and put a new product in its place.”James Brundle
“Market Hub has been an absolute revelation to our business. We have been forced to compete on the basis of product discounts and promotions so we knew the only way to grow was to understand exactly where we could optimise our business.
In 7 weeks we reduced waste and overrides by 31%, and increased profit by 2.6%. We’ve now currently rolled Pulse out across 6 store, have signed on for 2 more stores and use it as the driver of change in Road Chef.”Mark Rogers
