Today’s consumers shop anytime and anywhere, and are equally comfortable purchasing at physical stores or through online channels. Customers have little patience for out-of-stock items, lost or late shipments and inaccurately fulfilled orders. If disappointed, they’re just a few blocks or a few mouse click away from a host of competing retailers.
To stay competitive in an omni-channel environment, retailers need a single source of truth about the movement of products and inventory levels across their operations. From the receiving docks at warehouses to storerooms at individual retail locations, tracking and managing inventory holistically and in real-time enables retailers to respond quickly to customer needs across online and traditional retail channels.
