Transformation in retail industry is giving birth to a new era of e-commerce. The future of retail industry is not merely online, but rather in creative omnichannel offerings that link online and physical shopping. Driven by multiple ways the customers shop and the retailers operate, retail e-commerce is maintaining its impressive growth— in markets around the world. As a result, the walls between brick-and mortar and e-commerce are already coming down. In this scenario, retailers who can seamlessly merge online and offline setups to provide an omni-channel experience could prove to be the big winners.
This requirement has fuelled the rise of several niche players who offer products and solutions around the omnichannel theme. These systems can integrate a retailer’s POS or ERP system with e-commerce business so that the two systems share important data, helping the retailer work more efficiently and increase the bottom line. Through these solutions, many retailers extend the reach of their brand by selling to markets around the world.
