Next-gen omnichannel retailing - e2e visibility & demand shaping
(for current practitioners only)*
The pandemic has prompted a shift to non-store channels, including delivery and click & collect, accelerating a trend that was already well established. For many, the response has been tactical with a 'whatever it takes' approach to serving customers however they wish.

If so, how?
This discussion will explore:
How machine learning can improve forecasting accuracy across channels with leading demand indicators End-to-end omnichannel planning with a singular integrated view on merchandising and supply chain across all channels Leveraging rich customer data to proactively shape demand and reduce waste Best practices for scaling operations automation over time  Hosted by Intent
