For example, as one of the largest and most powerful retailers worldwide, Amazon has consistently made great use of technology while innovating to stay ahead of the game. Much of its success can be attributed to providing its customers with the most on-trend products, on demand and at competitive prices.
The advent of e-commerce at a time when consumers are feeling squeezed has created a perfect storm for bricks-and-mortar retailers. This is a hyper-competitive share chase, in which there are only three ways for retailers to win: driving the number of site visits, or growing the size of the basket, or both. All the more urgent, then, that retailers develop strategies to respond to the fact that the growth of the new e-commerce channel is bound to shift a higher percentage of trips online as the channel matures. In a sense, the urgency of innovation now simply represents an intensification of a perennial challenge. Innovation is always crucial in a world where mass retailers generally offer the same product range as their competitors, and retail store density in the developed world makes switching easy.
Amazon however, is continuously making incremental changes to its online retail platform. By updating and adding to its product lines, its customers are quickly able to find what they want, and to purchase it at a competitive price. A future-focussed strategy makes the online retailer a disruptive innovator. So, how can other retailers keep up?
This presentation aims to discuss the challenges retailers face when trying to innovate and in the presentation I will outline some merchant examples such as Amazon which will explore the innovation topic in more detail. I will present both sides of the innovation story ie what can go well and what can go wrong and why its important for retailers to find the right balance ensuring that the customer is at the heart of their business decision.
I aim to share experience on such range of retailers so that there is something relatable for all types of merchants attending.
It’s cliche, but if you want to succeed you can’t be scared to take chances.
Industry West continues to see monthly YOY revenue growth on the eCommerce side in excess of 35%. July 2018’s growth was 50%.
It took us working with 3 SIs to find a fourth we finally liked. So that’s 4 SIs since 2015. That may sound scary but if we hadn’t been willing to make quick changes we wouldn’t have seen the growth we’re seeing.
In the past 18 months we’ve:
* Gone from Magento Open Source to Commerce Cloud;
* Changed SIs;
* Completed more than 100 trello tickets with our current SI;
* Have onboarded a new ESP, new tax calculating SAAS, new shipping calculation SAAS, new personalization SAAS and new search personalization SAAS
All of this has led to documentable increases in traffic, calls, leads, and most importantly sales.
This presentation will discuss the why behind why we made these moves and then how we went about doing all of this without going insane!
