Through the expertise of our community of consultants, we have identified six major performance challenges facing retailers today:


Although retail players are more mature in terms of omnichannel logistics management, they still face volume and profitability challenges. Competition from Amazon and falling sales of non-food products in hypermarkets are forcing them to control their labor costs and automate their processes to maintain sufficient profitability.


Consumers expect a seamless experience, whether in-store, online or via mobile applications. Retailers therefore need to ensure that all channels are seamlessly integrated and offer a unified experience to their customers.


Omnichannel management means managing a centralized inventory and synchronizing stocks between different sales channels. Retailers need to implement real-time inventory management solutions to avoid stock-outs and maximize sales.


Retailers have access to a huge amount of data from a variety of channels. By analyzing this data, they gain valuable insights into customer behavior, market trends and channel performance. By using this information strategically, retailers can make informed decisions to improve their performance.


Consumers are demanding flexible delivery options, such as same-day delivery or delivery to a relay point. In addition, return policies need to be simple and convenient to encourage purchases. Retailers therefore need to develop innovative logistics solutions to meet these expectations.


Omnichannel management often involves working closely with suppliers and logistics partners to ensure efficient, coordinated delivery. Good collaboration helps optimize delivery times, reduce costs and improve the customer experience.
