Hi [[ session.user.profile.firstName ]]

Rise to the GST Challenge in Indian Retail

The Goods and Service Tax (GST) will radically reform India’s economy creating a common Indian market for goods and services, and bringing important benefits for retailers. For example, manufactured goods could become cheaper, logistics and inventory costs will fall, and the obstacles to e-commerce in India created by state restrictions and levies will reduce. GST has to be implemented by September 16 2017 at the latest, so time is running out for retailers that have not yet embarked on a strategy to make their practices and systems compliant with the new GST regime.

    Como consecuencia de un bajo nivel de innovación e inversión tecnológica, son muchas las empresas dentro del sector textil hoy en día, como fabricantes y distribuidores de telas, ropa o calzado que han visto reducidas en los últimos años sus ventas. Mayor competitividad, mayores costes y presión en precio, junto a la imposibilidad en muchos casos de aprovechar el crecimiento internacional han llevado a muchas de ellas incluso al cierre del negocio.

    Geoff Nairn, Hicham Lahlou, Maarten Tromp
    Demand Forecasting and Inventory Planning are now critical activities for retailers that want to succeed in today’s omnichannel world.

  • How to Grow Successfully in Emerging Retail Markets with Openbravo Recorded: Oct 27 2016 46 mins
    Xavier Places, Francesco Leto
    Technology is dramatically reshaping retailing around the globe and the transformations are most evident in emerging economies, where demographic trends, ecommerce and the shift away from traditional physical formats are creating big opportunities for both local players and multinationals. The challenge for retailers is to adopt a technology platform that adapts to the distinct characteristics of these markets in areas such as business agility, ease and speed of deployment, and cost effectiveness, while also supporting new omnichannel capabilities designed to build loyalty and satisfy heightened customer expectations.
  • Innovative Logistics Strategies for Omnichannel Fulfillment Recorded: Sep 15 2016 34 mins
    Geoff Nairn, Enterprise Solutions Specialist at Openbravo
    Omnichannel fulfillment is an area where bricks-and-mortar retailers have a unique advantage over e-tailers. They can fulfill orders and handle returns from stores to reduce shipping costs and times, and capture orders in any channel, regardless of that channel’s ability to fulfill the order. To support these new cross-channel fulfillment scenarios, retailers must overhaul their IT systems and logistics to gain a single view of inventory across the entire distribution network.

    What Will You Learn?
    In this webinar we highlight how consumers' heightened expectations in an omnichannel era are forcing retailers to improve and innovate fulfillment. For example, the growth of buy online pickup in store (BOPIS) responds to consumers’ demands for convenience and instant gratification. But many retailers have struggled to do omnichannel fulfillment well, so we explain what you need to be successful in terms of technology, logistics and supply chain management.

  • Building a Successful Omnichannel Strategy for Physical Stores Recorded: Jul 21 2016 36 mins
    Geoff Nairn, Enterprise Solutions Specialist at Openbravo
    Consumers are rushing to embrace the benefits of omnichannel retailing by choosing retail brands and businesses that have adapted the shopping experience to fit their connected "always on" lives. The physical store will continue to play a central if changed role in this new scenario and so bricks-and-mortar retailers need to leverage the strengths of their existing physical store network and their brand to offer customers a transformational shopping experience across all channels.

    What Will You Learn?
    In this webinar we highlight how retailers are using omnichannel to create differentiated shopping experiences designed to boost sales and margins, build loyalty and achieve a sustainable competitive advantage. We explain how information technology can help retailers successfully implement key omnichannel concepts in a way that builds on the advantages of an existing physical store network and evolves at a pace the retailer can decide.

  • Pricing Power: Optimize Retail Promotions for Competitive Advantage Recorded: Jun 9 2016 40 mins
    Geoff Nairn, Enterprise Solutions Specialist at Openbravo
    Retailers face intense competition for a decreasing share of the customer's wallet and the challenges are even more acute in markets that are deflationary. Promotions now play an increasingly important role in growing sales but an excessive dependence on deep and broader discounts and promotions can damage not only the bottom line but also the brand.

    What Will You Learn?
    In this webinar, we highlight some of the trends that are driving the increased use of promotions and discounts in retailing. We explain how information technology can help retailers develop "smarter" promotional and discount strategies. These seek to influence customer behavior and boost loyalty instead of simply generating a short-lived sales boost or clearing inventories.

    Roles with business responsibility in business processes in the Retail industry, for instance, Marketers, Store Managers, CIOs, CMOs, Merchandise Managers, etc.
