Re-Inventing the Retail Experience: Bringing Back the Brick and Mortar

Brick and Mortar Is Back.jpg

Learn how to leverage store associates as fundamental assets of your brand and foster deeper brand loyalty by making omnichannel a reality for your business. Make your customers' buying journey seamless by linking online and offline interactions to deliver a better customer experience. 

Despite the rise in online shopping, brick and mortar is back. Thanks to digital and mobile technology, consumers have come to expect a level of service — priority treatment for loyalty, for example — that many retailers are simply not equipped to deliver. 

As businesses look to support these new customer expectations, they are realizing that their back-office systems, which were designed to support employees and internal operations, handicap them when it comes to orienting around the consumer. Many organizations have ’80s-era traditional ERP at the center of the enterprise, surrounded by a patchwork of point systems for specialized functions. The result is that businesses can’t adapt to evolving customer expectations, instead spending millions of dollars to stitch together and maintain a patchwork of siloed systems. 

Since legacy systems were designed around departmental processes, rather than around the customer, these businesses are unable to understand their customers and turn insight into business advantage. Because their customer data is spread across CRM, ecommerce, marketing and multiple systems of record, they cannot reward their most profitable customers, predict demand or ensure repeat business. 

The future belongs to companies that can capitalize on the potential of technology to serve their customers better and orient around them. Enabling Customer Commerce requires creating an organization that is channel agnostic. It also requires fundamental changes to systems and processes that support your business. It requires redesigning the ERP system from the inside out, with the explicit goal of improving the customer experience.
