Why Technology Has Made Black Friday Irrelevant

Why Technology Has Made Black Friday Irrelevant | RedPrairie is Commerce in Motion | Scoop.it

I have fond memories of Black Friday, back in the days before ridiculous doorbusters at ridiculous hours meant risking life and limb. Back when Black Friday deals would be magically revealed in the Thursday newspaper, and my mom and I would spend the evening sifting through the circulars, planning our attack, while “the men” watched football or snoozed in turkey-induced comas in front of the TV. My mom and I would have a great time, heading out to shop, spend some quality mother/daughter time together, have a nice lunch, and head back home.

Retail Transformation and the Holiday Shopper

Retail Transformation and the Holiday Shopper | RedPrairie is Commerce in Motion | Scoop.it

The latest from Noel Goggin, RedPrairie Retail BU Leader:

 

Remember the good old days when retail success meant location, location, location? It still does, but besides Park Avenue or Main Street, it now includes everything from Yelp and Pinterest to Facebook and Twitter.

 

Armed with her laptop, smartphone and iPad, the hyper-connected shopper is dramatically reshaping the concept of retail location this holiday season. If you don't have a presence where she chooses to do her research and shop, she'll spend her holiday dollars with somebody else. Welcome to the wonderful world of retail transformation!

Open Your Window to Supply Chain Visibility and Adapt to Changing Technology | RedPrairie is Commerce in Motion | Scoop.it

There was a time when the latest craze in consumer technology did not completely alter the day-to-day operations of the supply chain landscape. Today, that is not the case. The emergence of the always-on, instant gratification Internet/mobile/social culture created a new type of consumer—one who is particular, displays less brand loyalty and demands faster delivery times and lower prices. 

 

The solution is simple to identify, yet increasingly harder to obtain—enterprise-wide inventory visibility...

According to a recent RSR report, retailers’ top inhibitor is not having a single view of customers across all channels. The report also found that, while retailers’ prime goal is to deliver a consolidated all-channel shopping experience, only 32% of retailers are able to do so.

Communicating with tech-savvy 18-to-29-year olds may be more about looking past technology and more about respect, said a new study on the so-called "Millennial" demographic.

 

While some characteristics remained consistent with expectations--tech-savvy, confident, independent, determined, global-minded--the study revealed that they are more likely to rely on social media for insight and opinions but prefer traditional brick-and-mortar stores for making purchases.

The Store Still Matters, Even to Millennials

The Store Still Matters, Even to Millennials | RedPrairie is Commerce in Motion | Scoop.it

Millennials (Gen Y) have practically grown up with social media and mobile apps and their lives are closely linked with emerging technology.

 

For that reason, it is easy to assume that Millennials rely on digital commerce for all their shopping needs and would find little motivation to visit brick-and-mortar stores. However, that assumption was proved inaccurate during a recent focus group produced and hosted by RIS News and sponsored by RedPrairie.
