Retail

An unprecedented retail landscape calls for unprecedented change

Between the rise of huge direct online sellers, manufacturers embracing direct-to-consumer strategies and a global crisis that left physical stores closed for months, there’s never been more pressure on retailers to adapt and innovate in their quest for sustainable profitability.

To succeed in these unprecedented conditions, retail leaders must:

  • Keep pace with shifting customer preferences and adapt product and merchandising strategies quickly as needs evolve
  • Collaborate closely with manufacturers to drive mutual value and reduce the risks posed by direct-to-consumer competition
  • Explore new business models and strategies like own-brand product development that offers high margins, but introduces new challenges
  • Deliver innovative and engaging customer experiences that bridge the gap between digital and physical touchpoints and deliver unique value
  • Turn massive volumes of customer data into actionable insight and use it to power projects such as in-store experience personalisation
