Technology solutions to create consistent personalized omnichannel experiences

Enable rich customer experiences in stores with robust in store retail technology

While brick and mortar retailers focus on going digital, online retailers continue to expand in physical locations. Today, customers switch between channels based on context, product, and convenience. What was bought in store once, could be ordered online and picked up in stores.  All of this points to physical stores being critically important – not only for growth but also in ensuring seamless omnichannel experiences.
To ensure continued loyalty and increased engagement it is important for retailers to provide rich shopping experiences in stores. SkillNet, a digital transformation consulting company, brings together best-in-class engineering, innovation, design and experience

2. Omnichannel Enablement

To provide true omnichannel experiences, it is important to understand customers and create customer journeys that pull them into your brand. Creating a technology stack and organization to support Omnichannel solutions requires a review of a customer’s behaviour, not only during the sales transaction, but through the entire buying process. This includes creating inspiration, awareness, research, purchase and post transaction support.

SkillNet design solutions for retailers to enable omnichannel processes by using our expertise in the areas

of Customer journey mapping, Retail Analytics, Order management and orchestration and Inventory visibility.

5. Store Inventory Management

Inventory accuracy and visibility is the lynchpin that enables all critical processes in retail. Having an accurate view of store inventory allows in-store associates to effectively communicate stock levels to customers to avoid losing sales and ensuring customer satisfaction. Centralized inventory visibility allows better decision making when distributing limited stock to locations to ensure maximum effect.

SkillNet has extensive experience in inventory processes and implementation of central and inventory management solutions.
