Sage X3 for retail
The landscape for retail globally has seen interesting changes over the past years. With the advent of social media and mobile phones we are seeing the change in consumer behavior not only in our younger population, but across the various age groups. There has been an uptake year on year in terms of online shopping and in order to stay in business in the coming years it’s becoming imperative that retailers look to offer an e-commerce platform on their stores website.
This is not to say that online purchases will replace in-store purchases and retailers should continue to provide unique and valuable in-store experiences, but it means they need to rethink their operational and organizational models in order to compete, differentiate and grow profitably and to find the right balance between what they offer digitally and what they offer in store.
Retailers gather consumer data daily and one of the biggest challenges is to turn this data into actionable insights. Implementing a business management solution like Sage X3 together with the retail and e-commerce solutions available will provide retail companies with an end to end Omni channel retail solution.
