The retail and consumer goods industries will change more in the next 10 years than they have over the past 40. One primary force is responsible—digitalization—and it has already begun.
Consumers demand more than just a product – they expect an outcome.
Consumers change buying decisions in the moment based on newly received information.
Only real-time, collaborative networks have the ability to deliver meaningful consumer experiences.
These trends have one major thing common: They pose a threat and open new opportunity. The decisive movers will take advantage of these opportunities and turn them into competitive advantage.

Nowhere is the impact of digital more profound than in processes and technologies that directly touch consumers. A great omnicommerce consumer engagement must include:

Social engagement involving brand, employees, and consumers
In-store technologies to augment shopping experience
“Segment of one” merchandising, marketing, and loyalty

Flexible supply networks enabling short lead times and “make-to-order” assortments
Tracking and tracing along the supply chain with connected warehouses
