Reverse Experiences for Customer-Led Retail: People, Process, Product, and Planet

Coverage: Europe

People, Process, Product and Planet

Customer lifetime value and consumer experience excellence are top priorities for retailers. Traditionally, a lot of attention was given to the front-end of the customer journey to “make the magic happen”. But in today’s market, it is vital to reverse the debate and focus on competitive advantage and profitability drivers for which critical knots need to be untied - such as the interactions among actors who manage the product lifecycle and the overall supply chain.
By 2024, 40% of the top 500 retailers will use AI-enabled decision support to drive improvements in the new KPIs of omni-channel retail, including customer lifetime value, productivity, and profitability. There are still opportunities to nourish crucial nodes of the internal processes of retail organizations with targeted injections of technological programs, to link the  4 pillars of a customer-led retail renaissance.
