Ever since the COVID-19 pandemic, eCommerce shopping has been flourishing like never before. However, it is not the whole story with other factors like accelerated business-to-business (B2B) and direct-to-consumer (DTC) eCommerce adoption, increased mobile commerce, and new technological advances creating both challenges and opportunities for organizations that embrace omnichannel retailing.
Now comes the difficult part - retailers need to either infuse or build new systems, processes, and strategies to deliver exceptional omnichannel commerce experiences consistently. This is where seamless Microsoft Dynamics 365 modular and composable cloud-based solutions come into the picture and help retailers deliver unified commerce experiences to their customers.
Today, omnichannel fulfillment retail tactics, such as reserve online pickup in store (ROPIS), buy online return in store (BORIS), buy online pickup in store (BOPIS), buy online pickup at curbside (BOPAC), endless aisle, two-day delivery, and more are adding both challenges and opportunities for retailers to deliver on their order promise.
Therefore, it becomes important that data must be unified across internal as well as external networks to include both digital and physical touchpoints. This requires resilient and agile solutions for faster responses to market changes and disruptions. For instance, a modern microservices-based order management system (OMS) can be leveraged by organizations to incrementally replace modular components of their existing infrastructure to gradually advance, irrespective of their place in the organization's supply chain and commerce digital transformation journey.
The best thing is that it helps organizations avoid time-consuming and costly rip-and-replace projects by seamlessly integrating with existing enterprise resource planning (ERP) investments. This further translates to unified data across disparate systems and unlocked siloed inventory and operational data.
