APT’s Test & Learn® software helps organisations optimise the outcome of new business initiatives by systematically testing the idea with a subset of stores, customers or employees before they have been rolled out on a large scale. This allows brands to improve the way they set prices, launch new products, design their stores and market better to their customers. APT’s innovative approach to business decision-making has made waves within the retail and hospitality sectors on a global scale. The “Test and Learn” methodology has been adopted by dozens of the world's largest corporations, including Coca-Cola, McDonald’s, Boots, Costa Coffee, Pizza Hut, ASDA, Argos and Hilton.
