Business Pressures Facing Retailers
Customers today are savvy, fickle, and demanding. How do retailers grow profitably in these challenging times? By transforming the business to deliver unified, personalized customer experiences that engage and drive loyalty.
Leading retailers are utilizing SAP technology and software to deliver personalized customer experiences, as well as increasing operating efficiencies to reduce costs and run better. SAP solutions help retailers establish a digital foundation to simplify their business with a detailed understanding of their customers’ needs and the ability to serve them individually and seamlessly across all channels.
SAP offers retail ERP software solutions that cover the automation of every aspect of your retail business including:
- Marketing and Merchandising
- Procurement and Private Label
- Supply Chain
- Omnicommerce Customer Experience
- Human Resources
- Platform and Technology
We talk a lot about digital transformation in retail. Today’s retailers are trying to challenge how they address customer needs, how to operate proactively based on a shopper’s digital footprint, and how to establish a “segment of one” for merchandising and loyalty. More than ever, retailers are becoming aware of technology trends and adapting a culture of change to move towards digital transformation.
How Does ERP Help in the Retail Industry?
ERP helps in the retail industry to give consumers the products, information, and personalized shopping experiences they want – when and where they want them – through retail management and omnichannel commerce software. SAP solutions harness real-time customer and point of sale (POS) insights, reach shoppers across any channel (including mobile), and get the visibility you need to optimize everything from merchandising to your supply chain.
