Online Retailers Leaping Ahead Through Technology: Leading the battle for systems, platforms and apps

Summary

“Online Retailers Leaping Ahead Through Technology”, report analyzes the strategies and technologies deployed by eTailers, and provides insight into how these could be applied to traditional retailers with physical stores. Additionally, this report advises IT vendors on developing innovative solutions and how to target traditional retailers with similar solutions as those used by successful eTailers.

Online retailers have been growing quicker than their bricks-and-mortar peers across several segments including apparel, books and furniture. Their competitive advantage results mainly from IT innovation including eCommerce platforms, predictive analytics, mobile apps and supply chain management. Since these eTailers lack physical stores for showcasing their products and sales assistants to provide recommendations to customers, they have naturally invested a large part of their budget into IT systems from the front to the back end. Many eTailers are also born in the cloud, meaning that they may not own any servers or storage arrays but rely on cloud service providers’ resources, which gives them greater flexibility and scalability.

Scope

– Innovation is driven by online retailers’ focus on cost efficiency since they face tight margins and often compete on price against traditional retailers who offer a full store experience
– Detailed customer insight and a user-friendly interface is the key for success; by running sophisticated algorithms to determine what a customer may be interested in and building up complex customer profiles, many upselling and cross-selling opportunities can be opened up
– Traditional retailers need to bring the benefits of eCommerce to their physical stores by introducing digital platforms and creating an omnichannel experience

Reasons to buy

– Gain insight into online reatailers’ strategies and their usage of innovative IT systems. This can be useful for pitching technologies to online and traditional retailers, and for developing omnichannel retail concepts and visions.
