Recognizing the need for insights into multi-channel use and OCM adoption,
Platt Retail Institute (PRI), in cooperation with the American Marketing
Association (AMA), and with the generous support of hybris software, decided
to undertake a survey of a portion of the AMA audience in January 2013. In
general, the purpose for conducting this research was:
1. To understand current and future marketing channel usage. As most
firms use various methods to reach their customers, we desire to gain
insights into current and future utilization, budget allocation, and
perceived channel ROI.
2. As organizations are being driven to adopt a more integrated marketing
approach, we desire to learn whether OCM strategies are being
implemented, or if there are plans to implement them within the next
three years. Underlying factors that are driving these plans, as well as
budgets allocated to implement these programs, were also considered.
The study also identifies the most significant business challenges faced
when implementing an OCM strategy, as well as who is primarily
responsible for making the decision to implement an OCM solution.
