Omni Channel: The (R)etail EvolutionW h a t ?
SECTION 1
Omni-channel means our stores, website and mobile
devices are all working in unison- and seamlessly
behind the scenes – to the benefit of the customer.
We are driving the customer online and online
customers into the stores. We are using mobile to
feed both stores and online.

SECTION 1
Omni-channel is to create a
seamless unified experience across
ALL physical & digital channels.
The Goal: to become
Device, Channel & Location agnostic
Omni-Channel is just Multi-Channel/Cross-channel!

SECTION 1
Traditional E-Commerce Multi-Channel Omni-Channel
The Business model evolution
Customers shop at
brick & mortar stores
Customers shop
online through
e-commerce websites
Customers shop via
multiple channels:
retail stores & online
Customers engage
anywhere via
integrated, seamless
experiences
There is a clear trend in many industries toward the use of
multi-channel approaches to engaging with customers.
But in focusing on multi-channel, companies may be overlooking
a more fundamental need—for a seamless, omni-channel approach
that provides a single, unified experience for the customer
across all channels. #

SECTION 2
Browse offline Buy Online
Consumers are diversifying the way they shop
for and acquire goods, becoming increasingly
open to buying both online and in-store
depending on their needs at time of purchase.
A significant number of shoppers who intend
to buy their item in the store, ultimately
purchase online – primarily due to price and
convenience.
“Showrooming”
Today’s consumer is sophisticated
and opportunistic, navigating
between store & online environments
interchangeably to meet their
shopping needs of the moment.

SECTION 2
Understanding Cross-Platform
Consumer Behavior
• A large number of active consumer are
multi-screeners. Most of consumers’ time
is spent in front of a screen – computer,
smartphone, tablet and TV
• The device we choose to use is often driven
by our context: where we are, what we want
to accomplish and the amount of time
needed
• Smartphones are the backbone of our daily
media interactions. They have the highest
number of user interactions per day and
serve as the most common stating point for
activities across multiple screens

Consumer Touch points
Consumers are already
sourcing information in
multiple ways- brands need
to ensure that they are
present where the consumers
are looking…

SECTION 2
Lines between offline & online
shopping experiences are blurring
Online & offline shopping experiences coexist
- across pricing, functionality, and promotions
• Research, View, Purchase: The shopper's
journey looks less like a funnel and more like
a flight map.
• People are shopping smarter: Shoppers
are using online & showrooming to make an
informed purchase.
• Trusted connections are coming online:
Connections are happening both online and
offline. People are sharing their opinion on
products not just with a group of friends,
but with millions of people.

SECTION 2
The New, Non-Linear Purchase Journey
• The customer’s journey is now DYNAMIC:
A non-linear path to purchase as consumers enter and exit
relationships with brands via much less predictable points, or as
they circle back to choices made previously.
• The journey is more INFLUENCED:
More content than ever is being put in front of customers, It is
available anytime and anywhere, and it can come from or through
anyone.
• The journey is CONTINUOUS:
The touch points consumers are exposed to are “always on.”
Evaluation/discovery & not necessarily purchase is the focal point.
Consumers’ journey has fundamentally changed in
3 significant dimensions:

Omni Channel: The (R)etail EvolutionConsumer
SECTION 3
Old Consumers vs. New Consumers
Lowest Price
Waiting for solutions
‘What’s in it for me?’
Seeking more ‘stuff’
Trusts marketing messages
‘on the box’
Passive recipient of brand
communications
Total Value
Demanding solutions
‘What’s in it for me?’
Seeking meaningful Experiences
Looks at ingredients/information
‘on the back of the box’
Active co-creators of brand
content, products & experiences
The new consumer is a value-aspirational, practical purchaser. They purchase with a
purpose but are unwilling to make practical trade-offs especially in a touch economy.

Who is the New-Age Consumer?
Omni Channel: The (R)etail EvolutionConsumer
SECTION 3
Customers are becoming more complex:
Source: Accenture report ‘The New Omni-Channel Approach to Serving Customers’
• MORE KNOWLEDGEABLE thanks to Internet accessibility and online consumer-
created content and social networks.
• MORE DEMANDING due to customers’ redefinition of what value means to them.
For example, time-compressed consumers are increasingly prioritizing convenience.
• MORE EMPOWERED, consumers follow their unique requirements and increasingly
pursue self-service and multi- channel options.
• MORE COLLABORATIVE, increasingly bring their own devices, apps and other tools
from outside the ecosystem of the service provider, and thus increasingly determine not
just what services they wish to consume, but exactly how they wish to consume those
services.
• MORE INTERACTIVE, as consumers actively engage in online dialogue and content
sharing and produce their own content for personal use and online publishing.
• INCREASINGLY ON THE MOVE, thanks to new capabilities
for mobile purchase and consumption of content and services anytime, anywhere.
Omni Channel: The (R)etail EvolutionTheir Needs
SECTION 4
The 4 C’s of Consumer needs
CONNECTIONS
Consumers expect to connect with brands anytime, anywhere... especially on their
smartphones & handheld devices.
CHOICE
Today's consumers are not limited by what they can find in a store, or even the
goods they find in their own country. They want selection and they want online,
mobile and in-store availability.
CONVENIENCE
Time-starved consumers are expecting the convenience of shopping online or in
store, but also the convenience of ship to home, pickup in store, or even pickup at
another convenient location.
CONVERSATION
Consumers likely begin their journey on social media looking for conversation, and
most importantly look for recommendations. But, it goes beyond search.
Consumers are looking for conversation and connection with brands they value."
Omni Channel: The (R)etail EvolutionTheir Needs
SECTION 4
Customers have…
Higher Expectations, More Power and Choice
Brands have to…
Be engaged in their eco-system
Community + Influence (vs.) Push + Control
Be at a channel of choice
Anywhere, Anytime, Increasingly Self-serve
Be relevant
Relevance + Dialogue = Influence on Choice

Omni-Channel Challenges
INNOVATION
Innovation is at the heart of Omni-channel. (R)etail is becoming a
melting pot of competition & only the fittest and agile will survive.
Innovation can be addressed through simple, meaningful solutions
to the basic question: ‘How can we meet & surpass customer
needs?’ The solution while addressing this question has to be
unique, differentiated and easy for the customer to opt-in.
SECTION
H o w ?
Transforming a tired multi-channel retailer into Omni-channel operations
requires the business to face up to the following challenges:
CHALLENGE
2 TECHNOLOGY
Central technology applications will be needed across the
enterprise to create a unified customer experience. ERP
systems need to be capable of integrating with the web, mobile,
social and store channels. Third parties need to be tightly
integrated with companies at a technology and business level.
CHALLENGE
Omni Channel: The (R)etail Evolution

Omni-Channel Challenges
CUSTOMER JOURNEY
The customer’s ‘discovery’, purchase and review/feedback
journey is very vital to any brand. Mapping these touch points
to the most appropriate channels enables businesses to create
the right functionality. Once the primary purpose of a channel
is known, it can be then optimized for that purpose.
SECTION
H o w ?
CHALLENGE
4 SETTING THE PACE
To implement an omni-channel business requires a commitment
to action and change. Right from systems to people, processes
and training and people: every aspect needs to be aligned to
create the desired experience.
Each change will take time but will require the right pace:
not too fast to accelerate into lapses & not too slow to miss the
opportunity to scale.
CHALLENGE

Powered by technology, analytics, mobility and flexible marketing
operations, Omni-Channel offers a tremendous growth opportunity for
companies that can out-innovate and out-execute their ever-expanding
list of competitors. And they can do so by integrating across all functions,
products and services, and ultimately, by providing personalized
customer interactions across all channels.

Support every CHANNEL your customers use
• Be ready to change & adapt with customers as buying process
channels continue to develop & evolve
• Give customers accurate inventory information as well as
choices for alerts, backorders and reorders
• Provide customers an easy, positive shopping experience: on
their mobile device, online and in the store…every time
SECTION
H o w ?
For brands/services to provide a truly ‘effective’ Omni-channel experience, they have
to allow customers the option to purchase on their own terms –
Browsing, Ordering, Delivery & Returns to be enabled both Online and in the Store.
Omni-channel should support every combination.

products from across channels

experience
