Customer Service Omnichannel Online Retail Operations Store Design Feb 20, 2019 by Guest contributor WayfinD staff Through a special arrangement, what follows is an excerpt of an article from WayfinD, a quarterly e-magazine filled with insights, trends and predictions from the retail and foodservice experts at WD Partners. A WD Partners study from almost six years ago found BOPIS (buy online, pickup in-store) to be the number one ranked technology consumers wanted (86 percent put it in the top two boxes).

How To Determine Your 3PL System Requirements - Multichannel Merchant

The internet has created a level playing field for sellers, spawning legions of ecommerce companies which became merchandise category killers. By a category killer we mean their assortment is narrow and deep and takes sales away from established sellers by offering more online choices. Amazon, Wayfair, Walmart, eBay, Target and others have become platforms for selling product online and in stores. In turn ecommerce companies have become multichannel in terms of systems and fulfillment capabilities. Developing and selling unique product is king. But critical systems functionality and efficient fulfillment are at the heart of this multichannel strategy. In all cases, merchants must meet compliance standards of marketplaces and big-box stores. Many third-party logistics (3PL) businesses are ideally suited for bringing this functionality and cost effectiveness to ecommerce, manufacturers and brands. Time to market will often be considerably faster and at lower costs when using a 3PL. As you look at your...

Valuable New Data Sources for Utilities - Transmission and Distribution World

New data sources for power utilities continue to emerge, a trend that is likely to continue in the digital age. Whether these new data sources can and will be harnessed by utilities for significant value, however, remains an open question. This issue has two components. First, a utility must practice holistic data management to take advantage of digital data routinely generated by its sensors and systems or external sources to improve its operations and create enterprise value. In doing so, a utility can more easily integrate new data sources as they become available. Second, the power industry must support efforts to define standards, develop applications and share best practices for new data sources to speed time to value. If these efforts are made in tandem, value creation by a data-driven utility is a certainty. Be forewarned: Becoming a data-driven utility through holistic data management practices requires a cultural shift to organization-wide...

TECHNOLOGY BY Deena M. Amato-McCoy The fast-growing brand Untuckit is using mobility to enhance the customer experience across its expanding brick-and-mortar portfolio. The digitally-native brand, whose signature shirts are made to be worn untucked, has made the transition to omnichannel retailer at warp speed. The brand, which debuted online in 2011, opened its first store a mere four years later. While the current retail environment continues to wreak havoc on “over-stored” chains, forcing them to close stores in effort right-size their chain, Untuckit has bucked the trend and continues to grow its portfolio, which stands at 41 locations — 40 stores in the United States and one in Canada.

NRF 2019: On The Cusp Of The Next Big Thing - Retail TouchPoints - Retail TouchPoints

Platform Wars ADVERTISEMENT Much as we saw at CES, NRF showed signs of a new generation of “Platform Wars,” with large-scale platform players competing to lock up partnerships with retailers to offer end-to-end one-stop shopping solutions. For example, the Microsoft presentation was a great example of this; they showcased everything from digital signage (in partnership withKroger) to Delivery Management Systems and inventory control to robots and in-store cashierless shopping (à laAmazon Go).  The implication of a full suite of digital retail solutions that are all “Powered by Microsoft” is a return to the “walled garden” model of platforms. It’s a throwback to the late 20th century, where companies would pick one platform and stick with it, versus today’s more common arrangement of stitching together a variety of solutions from different platforms that all share data. The concern is that the attitudes of the big and medium-sized companies are based on smaller...
