Product availability:
Out of stock is out of the question

It can cost a large retailer as much as $75 million a year. Little wonder 68% of retailers say a single, unified view of supply chains and inventory was their first priority. The continued rise in online shopping makes the need even more imperative.

Operational excellence:
Helping workers work with technology

As customer experiences are streamlined, store management gets more complex. 52% of retailers are refining their in-store procedures to capitalize on tools like mobile POS and kiosks that link salespeople on the floor with stock rooms and warehouses.
