There’s plenty of room in the digital economy for traditional retailers, as long as they shift focus from the products they offer to the experiences they provide, blending the physical and digital worlds to offer distinct and personalized shopping experiences and unleashing the untapped power of emerging new ecosystems. At the heart of retail’s ongoing transformation is a shift in focus from the point of sale to the point of experience. Retailers that will thrive and prosper in the digital economy will be those that think beyond the products they sell to providing hyper-personalized shopping experiences that surprise and delight the consumer at each interaction, regardless of channel or touchpoint. This white paper illuminates these strategic imperatives and delivers actionable recommendations to established retailers seeking to convert challenge into opportunity amid growing concern that they should merely concede victory to digitally-native companies.

If you’re not one of those retailers, you’re likely busy playing catch-up to them – and that’s not a position in which anyone wants to be. Since eCommerce began, a small handful of leaders have set the pace. They’ve innovated quickly and delivered incredibly valuable and convenient shopping experiences. And in doing so, they shaped consumer expectations. Take Amazon. Over a decade ago, the online giant seemingly rewrote the natural laws of retail by managing to deliver more, better, faster – all with unmatched accuracy and ease. Now, consumers expect an Amazon-like experience everywhere they shop, and anything else feels subpar.

DON’T LET ONE-TIME BUYERS BECOME ONLY-TIME BUYERS One-time buyers are retail gold: They present an incremental revenue stream and a chance to foster valuable new customer relationships. But while that first purchase is an achievement and the mark of a strong customer acquisition program, what comes after that first purchase is just as important. And for most retailers, it’s what comes after that presents the biggest problem.

Consumers worldwide continue to adopt and use technology in their shopping experience. Faced with rising customer expectations and increasing competitive pressures, retailers now are prioritizing in-store innovation. Many retailers have adopted multichannel implementations, in which mobile, web, and in-store shopping are enabled but not delivered consistently to the customer. The next step in this evolution is an omnichannel strategy, now being deployed by some retailers, which presents a consistent shopping experience across mobile, web, and in-store channels. Omnichannel also enables retailers to integrate back-end infrastructure technologies (e.g., servers, databases, etc.) and cloud-based services (e.g., loyalty programs, personalized recommendations, inventory management, etc.) to improve many aspects of store and enterprise operations. An omnichannel strategy relies on several core and supporting technologies. The key factors in evaluating any omnichannel-enabling solution includ

Small and midsize retailers around the world are seeing their businesses transform in a variety of ways. These firms, typically with fewer than 1,000 employees, have been transforming themselves as customers seek new types of engagement and as suppliers expect higher levels of efficiency and effectiveness. New business models and new competitors are changing the way retailers do business. Rather than simply react to new threats, successful retailers are leveraging technology in new ways to sharpen business practices, improve agility, and better serve customers while strengthening the role of retailers in the supply chain. Through digital transformation including the effective engagement of the internet of things (IoT) to track inventory, the opportunity to maintain and gain competitive advantage can be significant.

This RSR custom research report explores the impact of omnichannel methods on merchandising, marketing and the supply chain; specifically, what analytical capabilities address the challenges that omnichannel selling and fulfillment pose for retailers. Consumers today routinely begin their shopping journeys online, but complete their purchases in nearby stores, in their “home” stores or delivered directly to their doors. Retail analytics enables organizations to capture data from their customers' journeys. Retailers that successfully deliver relevant omnichannel experiences while gaining a more sophisticated understanding of demand (where and how it is initiated) will enhance their brands’ value and create compelling and profitable customer relationships.
