Build a world class customer driven retail organization
Retailers are operating in an increasingly competitive marketplace. The need to control costs and gain competitive leverage has never been greater. This includes the effective use of strategic technologies to support your business initiatives. Do your technology systems give you the leverage you need to build a world class customer-driven retail organization?
- Is there a quantifiable merchandising strategy in place to support your organization’s financial plan?
- Do your systems give you the information you need to buy what you sell instead of selling what you buy?
- Are your stores, distribution centers and suppliers working in a coordinated effort to deliver the right products to the right customers at the right stores and at the right price?
- Do your IT systems provide you the tools you need to operationalize your data and enable you to quickly make good decisions on the thousands of decisions you are faced with every day.
