Oakville, Ont. (PRWEB) January 11, 2012
Keyora, Columbus and JustEnough Software today announce the launch of their joint offering, E2E Retail Powered by Microsoft Dynamics. Built on Microsoft’s industry-leading Dynamics AX enterprise resource planning (ERP) system, it is the industry’s first cohesive, end-to-end solution designed to meet the needs of today’s omni-channel retailers.
E2E Retail Powered by Microsoft Dynamics brings together powerful e-commerce, financial planning, merchandise and assortment planning, allocation and replenishment, business intelligence, store operations and point-of-sale capabilities. The solution eliminates reliance on disparate and disconnected retail systems, replacing them with real-time, connected workflows.
As a result, retailers can unite their people, processes and selling channels in an effort to:
- Compete for brand differentiation and customer loyalty
- Meet and exceed the needs of increasingly demanding consumers
- Keep pace with the rate of change as new selling channels emerge and the line between social networks and the marketplace continues to blur
“An omni-channel customer experience is a competitive necessity in the retail sector. While this might seem like a daunting undertaking that will involve multiple systems, E2E Retail Powered by Microsoft Dynamics is a solution that offers seamless omni-channel management across online stores, mobile sites and applications, POS and ERP. This solution will assist retailers in scaling their channels to meet the ever-changing needs of their customers which will result in increased sales and market share,” said Susan Griffiths, Chief Operating Officer of Keyora.
She added, “While the physical store is an important part of the customer experience, in many channels it is not seeing the same rate of growth in sales as is seen in the online store. An integrated channel solution can drive customer traffic to the physical store to ensure growth in sales across all channels.”
Thomas Hauge, Managing Director of Columbus North America, added, “The benefits retailers will realize using E2E Retail Powered by Microsoft Dynamics are numerous. Increased basket size, improved enterprise-wide visibility and enhanced customer service levels combined with the ability to blend sales channels are just some of the tangible results users will enjoy. Ultimately, retailers will gain the flexibility and control needed to deliver a compelling omni-channel shopping experience.”
