Retail

Connecting digital exponential technologies to the future of retail

The Retail Industry finds itself right in the center of disruption. Foot falls are dropping, stores are closing and traditional flagships are biting the dust. Consumers have multitudes of choices, are unafraid of making them and they are making these hyper personalised choices online. Brands too are bypassing stores and going online, straight to customers. Even as consumers become increasingly moving online, a number of categories, that conventionally appeared to be suited only for physical stores,  seem to be moving online as well. Everything is online but there too things are changing rapidly.

Consumers are increasingly seeking online, the same comfort and engagement of their senses that they would experience in a physical store. Exponential innovation in digital technologies such as AI, AR/VR, IoT, Robotics and others are not just making this increasingly possible, but also transforming that possibility into a rapidly moving target. And so everyone in retail, from brick and mortar stores to the online players are challenged with constantly having to innovate to remain competitive.

 

The business objective of every retail player is to digitize every part of the retail value chain from sales to customer engagement, store operations, security, delivery, merchandizing, warehousing, logistics, purchase and supply chain management. At WhatNext, we bring the unique capability of unparalleled insights, creative advisory and a global ecosystem of exponential technology partners to address every such unique business objective of our clients
