Dortmund | 13. November 2018
Retail is experiencing fundamental changes. Buzzwords like multi-channel strategy, seamless retail experience, personalised customer engagement and voice commerce dominate the industry. The success of online retail is forcing brick-and-mortar businesses to reposition themselves. Integrated digitalisation with an eye on the fusion of the online and offline world is the motto. Not doing so runs the risk of letting our inner cities decay and decline, experts warn. As an IT service provider, adesso offers solutions for retail to secure its future viability and presents its portfolio for the first time at the German Retail Congress in Berlin.
Supporting companies with online concepts, mobile applications or CRM systems is part of adesso’s traditional IT business. The retail portfolio that adesso will be presenting to a large specialist audience for the first time enables an enhancement of the “customer journey” for both businesses and customers. The purchasing processes have changed fundamentally due to new business models. Consumption is increasingly shifting to the Internet, significantly benefiting online-only retailers.
The retail industry cannot simply stand idly by and watch the development. Digitalisation offers them opportunities to make their businesses more attractive and successful. adesso will be demonstrating just how that can be done at its booth at the German Retail Congress. Under the motto of “Experience customer journey live”, the company will present solutions for retailers’ core business processes and customer relationships.
Within the scope of its “Retail Agenda 2025”, adesso has also designed a series of methods to enable the retail industry to cope and thrive throughout the necessary digital transformation. At the Congress, adesso will highlight successful approaches for merging online and offline retail, as well as an integrated digitalisation concept. A few examples:
adesso will be presenting its IT solutions on 14 and 15 November 2018 in the congress centre of the Maritim Hotel in Berlin at Booth H7.
