Retailers that use cloud-based analytics and omni-channel commerce solutions will have the advantage this holiday season.
For example: Known for its “endless aisle” strategy, Moosejaw only stocks 4,000 to 5,000 product SKUs in its stores, while the warehouse used for fulfilling online orders holds about 120,000 product SKUs. Using mobile devices, customers and Moosejaw sales associates can stand in the store aisles and look at the breadth of product options, check warehouse stock and find desired items that can be shipped to the customer’s home for free in only one or two days.
