Large scale retailers must meet their growing data bandwidth demands for increasingly automated transactions to data for inventory, pricing, billing and supply chain management applications. They are also continually challenged to reduce costs in highly competitive market segments while enhancing the customer experience. Every retailer is unique. Each must address issues of cost control, multi-channel retailing, shrinkage and inventory management, the growth of self-serve kiosks, and the introduction of M-commerce in ways that fit their business models and their operations.
Perhaps no industry has undergone so many changes in recent years as retail. To continue to compete, retailers have become leaders in innovation, investing in new technologies and practices to:
- Transform the customer journey
- Collect and analyze customer and operational data
- Streamline operations with consolidated systems
- Secure customer and employee data
- Optimize employee productivity
