Retail has come a long way since the birth of ecommerce in the 1990s, as have consumer expectations. At its core however retail is still about one thing: ensuring the right products get to the right people when and where they are wanted.
However, achieving this in today’s market has become a challenge rich in complexity. Consumers regularly cross back and forth between in-store and online and the lines have blurred as retailers encourage customers to place and pick up online orders in-store.
A social business is an organization whose culture and systems encourage networks of people to create business value. Social businesses connect individuals, so they can rapidly share information, knowledge and ideas by having conversations and publishing informal content. They analyze social content from multiple channels and sources, in addition to structured data, to gain insights from both external and internal stakeholders. When those things happen, innovation and business execution rates increase, better decisions are made, and customers and employees are more engaged and satisfied. Social businesses enjoy lower operating costs, faster speed-to-market, improved customer and employee engagement, and increased profitability. Many organizations don’t fully appreciate the magnitude of the value creation potential of social business.
