Omnichannel Commerce

Develop Your Omnichannel Strategy

Digital transformation has ushered in a new era in both B2C and B2B commerce. To engage with your customers, you need an effective omnichannel strategy – and the right platform to deliver it.

Digitisation Is Changing the Customer Journey

Customer engagement is more important than ever. The expansion of e-commerce means that every shopper follows a different journey and expects personalised interaction at every touch point. And with so many brands to choose from, customers more readily switch from one to another. However they choose to shop – whether online or in store, on a mobile device or desktop – they want a consistent shopping experience.

79% of all customers spend at least 50% of their purchasing time researching products online.

Why You Need an Omnichannel Strategy

To meet modern demands and remain competitive, companies need to optimise their omnichannel processes and engage with shoppers at multiple touch points.

They must deliver excellent customer service and a unique commerce experience to the individual, consistent across all channels. Enterprises deploying an effective omnichannel strategy tap into a wealth of opportunities, generate new leads, increase revenue, and achieve sustained business growth.

Integrating the Customer Experiences Across All Channels

Discover how integrating the customer experience across all channels helps you.

Are You Facing the Following Challenges?

  • Are you being held back by duplicated customer information scattered across different data silos?
  • If your buyers purchase from various channels, do you have up-to-date information on what’s in stock?
  • Are your online shop’s database and your mobile selling applications stored in separate locations?
  • Can you ensure that all digital and physical channels share a consistent look and feel?
  • Are you able to offer customer-specific catalogues and price lists?

What Makes Your Omnichannel Strategy Successful?

1. Ensure a Single Source of Truth

Bring all of your data and commerce processes together under one roof. Eliminate multiple, inconsistent data sources and gain a single view of customer, stock, and product information. Benefit from better-informed decision making and increased business agility.

2. Connect Commerce and Marketing Processes

Connect commerce and marketing processes and profit from seamless inter-departmental collaboration. Sales can quickly pass on information from customer interactions to help marketers build targeted campaigns. Meanwhile, valuable insights gained through market research and customer profiling support the commerce team in devising effective sales strategies – including personalised recommendations.

3. Integrate Your ERP and CRM Systems

Integrating your ERP and CRM systems can improve business agility and data reliability. Any changes made to information in one (regarding customers, contacts, inventory, etc.) will be instantly reflected in the other, meaning faster access to crucial data to support sales and decision making. Furthermore, by bringing the two systems together, you gain a 360-degree view of customers and a single source of truth.

4. Provide a Personalised Experience

Provide customers with content that is geared toward their preferences. In a next-generation e-commerce suite, your website will automatically generate offers and recommendations based on the user’s purchase and search history. Products and services that are of greater interest to the shopper will appear higher in catalogue searches. In this way, you drive customer engagement, encouraging first-time purchases as well as repeat business – and ultimately boost sales.

5. Implement Product Information Management (PIM)

As part of your commerce solution, a modern PIM module makes it simple to update catalogues, add products, and edit descriptions. It keeps information consistent across all channels, making it easier for customers to find what they want on any device. This in turn boosts the effectiveness of your marketing campaigns, branding, and SEO.
