The mobilization of retail, and a renewed focus on customer centricity, is the catalyst for the new retail paradigm of anywhere, anytime, anyhow shopping—in other words, unified commerce.
Retail models are quickly changing. Stores still represent the vast majority of retail purchases, but the definition of “store” is rapidly changing. Unified commerce is the new retail nirvana, and the store of the future represents a unique opportunity for customer engagement. This, coupled with digital experiences that are increasingly personal and mobile, has blurred the lines between channels, and has created the expectation of anywhere, anytime, anyhow shopping. Supporting this experience requires a different technology approach.
Personalization and relevance are the keys to winning and keeping customers. The solution? A unified commerce platform that encompasses real-time retail and supports a seamless shopping experience. Unified commerce starts with defining the ideal customer journey. This determines the necessary business capabilities, which then shape technology choices.
