The Candid Voice in Retail Technology: Objective Insights, Pragmatic Advice

Profitable Customer Engagement: The Unmet Promise

Early efforts to meet consumer demand in unexpected places by leveraging inventory across channels have been relatively successful — certainly, more and more retailers are capturing sales this way that would otherwise have been lost. But as the volume of these cross-channel sales and fulfillment activities increase, it raises the question: the more retailers touch their inventory on its way to consumers’ hands, are they really making money? Or are they burning any potential margin in increased shipping and handling costs?

Profitable Customer Engagement: The Unmet Promise contains analysis of the business drivers, opportunities, and organizational constraints surrounding retailers' efforts to creat profitable orders across channels. It also offers baseline recommendations for navigating the future of omni-channel demand particularly as retailers struggle with evolving consumer technology and its impact on shopping behavior.
