TD Tawandang is collaborating with Google Cloud and Tangerine to democratise analytics and artificial intelligence (AI) amid plans to support mom-and-pop stores in Thailand.

In operating as a fast-growing retail specialist, the Bangkok-based business is leveraging new technologies to help boost economic efforts following a period in which local micro, small and medium enterprises (MSME) have been overshadowed by the rapid expansion of convenience store chains. across the country.

Such expansion — which has been seen convenience store chains offer lower price points due to economies of scale — has adversely hit the MSME space during the pandemic and led to a decline in income.

In response, TD Tawandang is offering a profit-sharing partnership model, giving stores a visual makeover and providing access to its unified TD Retail Platform.

Built on Google Cloud’s infrastructure, the platform maximizes advanced analytics, AI, and machine learning technologies with each refurbished store then featuring a ‘Tookdee’ logo alongside its original name.
