Retail is shifting at a pace that is faster than ever before, and this requires businesses to adopt new strategies, models, and ways of working.
The retail trajectory is constantly shaped by evolving customer behaviors and expectations, newer business models, expanding partner ecosystem, and macro-economic changes. Executing strategic decisions in today’s complex omnichannel retail landscape to increase customer lifetime value requires retailers to factor in a wide array of variables in real time, beyond the realm of human endeavor, to ensure accuracy.
Further, businesses are under pressure to adapt to business models that will allow them to be a part of digital commerce ecosystems where several companies across industries collaborate to deliver on the customer promise. They need to focus on their core value propositions while creating an infrastructural and operational framework that facilitates collaboration, control over operational costs, and the ability to sustain in a competitive environment.
Thriving in a complex retail landscape is about harnessing the power of data to maximize outcomes.
TCS Algo Retail is our patented approach for transforming organizations into resilient, adaptable, nimble, algorithmic enterprises by seamlessly orchestrating data and algorithms across the retail value chain, and reimagining processes with automation and intelligence.
