Key challenges for the retail industry

The retail industry struggles with tight margins, rising consumer expectations and all the difficulties of effective digital transformation. Across channels, retailers face the same logistics challenges as any large organizations — and the requirement to delight individual consumers.

OpenLedger has the experience and knowledge to address retailers’ most pressing concerns, including:

Operational inefficiency

Retail supply chains lack visibility across key business departments, with siloing and static record-keeping major obstacles to integrated and efficient operations management.

Consolidated omnichannel retail

95% of American consumers shop online — then 65% buy in stores. Consumers demand omnichannel shopping but retailers struggle to overcome data management hurdles and provide them.

Consumer participation and tracking

Consumer data collection efforts entail security risks, and can be difficult to compile, share and analyze, increasing administrative costs.

Counterfeit prevention

In 2017, the global market in counterfeit consumer goods was worth $340 billion, damaging brands and degrading consumer trust and revenue.

Quality, provenance, brand

Consumers want to know where their products come from, and mistrust brand-generated claims of ethical sourcing and quality materials or ingredients.

Regulatory compliance

Current supply chain, production and point-of-sale technologies make it difficult to establish and demonstrate regulatory compliance across the organization.

Customized omnichannel shopping experiences
