- Retail ERP
By integrating operations into a robust retail ERP system we can help retailers accelerate their business capabilities by merging various platforms, applications and architectures under one, seamless technology umbrella.
Once retailers built technology platforms to address a specific problems, from supply chain management to pricing. However this approach is becoming increasingly obsolete as any supplementary procedure adds a further technology layer leading to extra costs, complexity and ultimately operational inefficiencies.
Moreover as retailers expand and have more channels to interconnect and integrate, they are also left with larger datasets to manage. Consequently core systems must become seamless, underpinned by exceptionally fast data processing.
In addition to creating a solid technology base, customer-facing technologies need to be seamlessly intergrated themselves, as even when consumers are not shopping, they’re evaluating retailers and products, looking at their friends’ shopping habits through social media, or reading online reviews.
