As large online retailers provide next-day or even same-day deliveries to customers, traditional retailers are finding new ways to compete. Some are using their stores and warehouses as a distribution network to guarantee fast delivery to customers in different areas. For those that don’t have their own logistics services for home delivery, partnering with external services like Uber can be an effective way to deliver the goods quickly. This can be a great advantage to the business as long as everyone has a clear view of where products are located. But when the channels’ and partners’ systems are not properly integrated, gaps in communication lead to replenishment and distribution errors – and ultimately disappointed customers. It’s a surprisingly common problem as retailers struggle to make old, disparate systems work as part of a new, streamlined vision of an omni-channel business. But it can be avoided by using a fully integrated system that connects e-commerce, brick-and-mortar and logistics. That way, everyone has the visibility they need for optimized replenishment, delivery and service. In the fast-paced world of electronics retail, competing with online retailers is a necessity.
