During Christmas, every Retailer (online or in store) is all about keeping customers happy so that they can buy the most beautiful presents for under the Christmas tree. So why don't Retailers also give themselves a nice gift in the form of Digital Transformation?!
During Christmas, every Retailer (online or in store) is all about keeping customers happy so that they can buy the most beautiful presents for under the Christmas tree. So the offers of products follow each other, one even more attractive than the other! This all sounds like a fairy tale, but behind the scenes a lot of work precedes it…
Purchasing managers in particular have been busy for months before Christmas (and even during Christmas). They must ensure that they have another fantastic offer ready every day and/or week. But which products are those? How much stock should we have? How can they arrange for the stock to arrive on time?
Now we've talked before about how you can use your data to create more value for the customer. And how Data can help to determine the right stock so that you no longer have to say 'no'. But Data Transformation can also assist you in better communication with your supplier.
It is rare that your own software systems (such as procurement programs, CRM, ERP or TMS) are the same as those used by your suppliers. Now that is not a problem, but the output of your system will not be able to be used directly as input by the supplier without manually retyping data. Of course, the same applies the other way around, which means that you will probably spend quite some time checking and manually entering purchase orders, order confirmations and sales orders.
By implementing Data Transformation and using it correctly, you can ensure that your systems speak the same language as those of your suppliers.
The advantages of this are very great:
By giving yourself a Data Transformation gift this Christmas, you can achieve quite a few benefits that will ultimately lead to more satisfied customers! It is a win/win situation where you, as a Retailer, will always have the right products in stock in the right quantities and the customer will always be able to buy the product(s) they want! It is also important to mention that your suppliers will also be happier if you can deliver orders that they can start working on immediately, without manual input.
But now the question is, of course, how do you know which Digital Transformation solution suits you best? This is where we come in and we are ready to turn your data into information so that you can take maximum advantage. Contact us today and get yourself the best gift this Christmas.
