All retailers today are expected to provide a wide and expanding proliferation of product mix and cope with seasonal fluctuations in an intensely competitive marketplace. The challenge to meet these needs for agility while keeping costs to a minimum get more and more complicated.
The hyper-competitive specialty retail industry requires best-in-breed distribution practices in order to guarantee product availability and customer satisfaction. Facing SKU proliferation, consumer demand volatility and regulatory requirements, specialty retailers endeavor to optimize their current unique business processes to ensure a premium customer experience – every time.
Further, the days of a clear delineation between supply chain operations and the retail floor are sunsetting.
- Online sales are growing at an astounding rate, with no slowdown expected
- Buy online, pick up in store (BOPIS) trends like “click and collect” and “ship to store” are preferred by nearly half the consumers surveyed
