Unifying Physical and Digital Retail
The growth of e-commerce has given consumers the ability to shop, purchase, fulfill and return wherever and whenever they want from a few simple clicks on their device.
The retail industry is witnessing massive transformations due to accelerating consumer expectations, rapid advancements in technology and a marketplace that is more competitive than ever. The need to elevate the retail industry and converge physical and digital commerce is eminent.
‘Disruption’ is the new normal in Retail
Technology is increasingly fundamental to competitive advantage in the retail industry. Clearly, from a glut of new products, markets, and customer segments to the escalating expansion of sales and marketing channels (like mobile and social commerce), retail is at an inclining point. Clients expect services that are more personalized, hyper-connected, and engaging. Additionally, several forces are revolutionizing the landscape: the explosion of data and connected devices, software defined infrastructure, cloud enabled as-a-service and experience, and outcome-driven digital platforms. This makes it imperative for retailers to showcase agility in technology adoption and business process optimization.
