The COVID-19 pandemic disrupted our entire way of life. Consumer buying patterns and supply and demand changes have impacted the supply chain, adding pressure on companies to reach peak performance. "Global e-commerce rose from 15% of total retail sales in 2019 to 21% in 2021 and is expected to reach 27% globally (30% in North America) by 2026—13.1% annual growth. In-store sales are projected to grow as well, up 5.7% in the U.S. for 2022." -Page 1 - Omnichannel Readiness for Today’s Growing Companies

This whitepaper covers proven omnichannel success factors to help you understand the omnichannel sales model. You will learn why your company may need to transform your business with cloud ERP software and the omnichannel sales model sooner than later.
Part of the challenge for retailers is that consumers have increased expectations and demands. As more consumers purchase online, they expect the shopping experience to be quick and easy. They want a hassle-free way to research, purchase, pick up and return merchandise online. "In fact, 90% of shoppers are more likely to choose a retailer based on convenience than any other factor." In light of these changes in consumer buying patterns, retailers must adapt to compete.
The omnichannel sales model arises as a solution for retailers of all types in response to evolving buying patterns. Omnichannel is a term that includes selling through to consumers (B2C), commercial customers (B2B), or directly from the manufacturer to the end-user or consumer (D2C). Retailers must adopt the omnichannel model and prepare to undergo a digital transformation to survive. To continue to grow the business, these companies need a modern ERP software solution.
Technology is vital for suppliers to efficiently stock, sell, deliver, and refund/exchange goods in this rapidly evolving environment. A modern ERP solution, like Acumatica Cloud ERP software, is crucial to managing your internal business processes and sales activity. Growing retailers who use entry-level accounting or legacy ERP systems must modernize customer-facing and internal business operations to remain competitive.
