Shelf Score is derived from Instant.ly Concept Test™, recently launched by the Company as the first concept-testing platform of its kind to provide CPG brands and retailers with an easy-to-use tool to screen new product ideas– including new packaging, flavors or line extensions. Instant.ly Concept Test empowers brand managers to collect rich feedback from mobile and online audiences to determine key success attributes, such as purchase intent, in a fraction of the time and at a fraction of the cost of current testing methods.

With over 80 variable product attributes for brand managers to choose to evaluate, Instant.ly Concept Test compiles top two box scores for purchase intent, consumer need/desire, differentiation, and perceived value. The results are captured in an intuitive dashboard, detailed enough to persuade and polished enough to present.

The products included in the August beverages edition of Instant.ly Shelf Score were discovered in grocery stores and online channels across the U.S. To compile its list, Instant.ly reviewed a wide cross-section of products, making final selections based on flavor innovation, interesting applications of new or popular ingredients, and category disruption from small or unknown brands.
