Simplify. Accelerate. Optimize.

Inventory management is a critical challenge facing marketers in the retail industry. Timely marketing tactics are needed in different regions in order to manage and influence inventory levels. If you add fickle buying behavior and disrupted personal customer journeys, inventory optimization becomes essential.

Additional struggles may include adopting process rigor, policy, procedure and work structure, changing market conditions, the continual increase in MarTech complexity, enabling new digital channels as well as increasing asset volumes.

More than other industries, retail MarTech roadmaps must include work management optimizations that significantly reduce the manual labor involved in the creation of complex retail campaigns, management of agency services, and the elimination of creative rework. Challenges also include the need for increased asset reuse and streamlined creative asset development across regions and translations.

Client Success Story

A global retailer needed to retool its marketing legacy systems. These systems were inefficient in supporting collaboration, asset sharing and similar work processes across the company’s widespread locations. Such inefficiencies included utilizing 10 separate platforms and tools to orchestrate marketing plans, strategies and work processes, as well as a separate production system with the company’s creative agency.
