How mall owners can boost revenues through advanced analytics via @McKinsey #bigData #advancedAnalytics

How mall owners can boost revenues through advanced analytics via @McKinsey #bigData #advancedAnalytics | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

That said, a handful of forward-thinking malls are leading the way in advanced analytics. They’re using prescriptive and predictive analytics—built into user-friendly tools with strong data-visualization capabilities—to make smarter business decisions. In this article, we home in on how malls are using advanced analytics in an especially critical part of their business: revenue management. They’re determining the best mix of stores, understanding and planning store adjacencies that drive higher consumer spending and longer mall visits, and engaging in more-informed rent negotiations with tenants. It’s paying off: malls using these tools have increased their leasing revenues by double-digit percentages.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: mall owners can leverage digital technologies to improve their revenues. The analysis proposed here appears straightforward and should be considered by any mall owner. I also feel it may be used by other large rental property owners such as large retail store chains or even cities that suffer from loss of physical retail revenues.

Stories about AI-enabled Digital Transformation in Retail and the Lowes home renovation robot that will guide you in the store to find what you are looking for #AI #robot #retail

Stories about AI-enabled Digital Transformation in Retail and the Lowes home renovation robot that will guide you in the store to find what you are looking for #AI #robot #retail | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

The robots, made by Fellow Robots, use a 3-D scanner to
detect people as they into stores. Shoppers can search for
items by asking the bot what they want or typing items
into a touch screen. The bot can guide them to those
items using smart laser sensors, similar to the technology
used in autonomous vehicles. The LoweBot also scans
shelves using computer vision to send up-to-date
information to store associates, even while it is showing
people around the store. Inventory tracking may seem
mundane and boring, but is incredibly important to a
retailer.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: with labour shortage and minimum wage increase you will see experiments like this one flourish in retail stores. Not certain that a robot like this will be helpful nor that it will meet the marketing definition of enhanced customer experience in store... But it sure will address a major pain of mine: finding a sales rep in a RONA store on weekends!

Experimental Design imagines another scenario: neighborhoods eliminate the growing stream of delivery vehicles by organizing central locations or deploying a kind of package delivery van that comes around once or twice a day like an ice-cream truck. Neighbors might gather around the day’s influx of retail goods and exchange news, transforming the hermetic life behind closed garage doors into a more open and collaborative kind of community.

Online grocery reaches 5.5% of total sales

Online grocery reaches 5.5% of total sales | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

Online grocery spending continues to grow at a rapid pace, now making up 5.5% of total grocery spending in the U.S., according to a new study from advisory firm Brick Meets Click. Nearly 30% of U.S. households buy groceries online, and most of the near-term growth in online grocery spending will continue to come from this group of active online grocery shoppers.
Over the past year, online grocery shoppers increased their weekly online spending from 28% to 46% of their total grocery spend, the firm found. Their average order size increased from $62 in 2017 to $69 in 2018.
The report says that while grocers are well-positioned to meet the growing demands of online grocery shopping, Amazon, which has 77% household penetration, will continue to challenge other retailers when it comes to capturing online grocery spending – especially as it leverages iPrime membership benefits through Whole Foods.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: warehouse automation is a major component of retail ecommerce digital transformation. As more orders go online, the speed and cost of order preparation must be reduced. Amazon has invested heavily in the field buying KIVA robots in 2014. Now other retailers, especially in the grocery field, are also moving from manual picking to automation because they have the volume. In fact, this may be a sign of the future: grocery retailers may become leaders in the digital transformation, moving away from their current position as dead last.

Ghế xoay nhân viên nữ hình vỏ trứng màu sắc trắng đen, thiết kế rất ưa nhìn từ mọi phía. Đối với những khách hàng thích mẫu mã đơn giản, tinh tế và phong cách sản phẩm này có những ưu điểm của thiết kế Bắc Âu tối giản.

Ghế xoay nhân viên nữ hình vỏ trứng nếu nhìn từ phía sau, có hình dạng rất giống một quả trứng lớn, vui nhộn và hài hước, mọi người không thể không yêu nó ngay từ cái nhìn đầu tiên. Do hình dạng tích hợp, các tay vịn thông thường trong ghế nhân viên văn phòng. Ghế hình vỏ trứng được thiết kế lại đã thay thế bằng tay vịn cố định. Tuy nhiên, đệm trên tay vịn khá dày, và khuỷu tay được đặt trên đỉnh để cảm nhận rõ ràng sự hỗ trợ của phần tay ghế.


Ghế xoay nhân viên nữ hình vỏ trứng VC02

1.Thiết kế ghế nhân viên nữ hình vỏ trứng

Mẫu ghế nhân viên hình vỏ trứng thông qua một đệm ngồi tương đối dày, và nó mềm mại và hỗ trợ khi ngồi làm việc. Sự thoải mái khi ngồi tốt hơn ghế xoay văn phòng giá rẻ. Phần lưng bằng lưới thoáng khí mà không cảm thấy lạnh vào mùa đông. Nó cũng không phải là dễ dàng để đổ mồ hôi trong mùa hè. Lưới được sử dụng ở mặt sau của ghế, độ dẻo dai rất tốt, không cảm thấy bị hụt hẫng ở lưng và hỗ trợ hiệu quả các cơ bắp.

Ghế xoay nhân viên nữ hình vỏ trứng VC01 2. Tiện ích của ghế nhân viên vỏ trứng

Với chức năng của ghế xoay nhân viên vỏ trứng thật thoải mái cho người sử dụng. Tay cầm điều chỉnh, ghế có thể được nâng lên tự do để đạt được vị trí ngồi tối ưu với bàn làm việc. Ngoài chức năng nâng cơ bản của ghế nhân viên văn phòng, mẫu ghế hình vỏ trứng nhỏ gọn cũng có chức năng ngả tựa 120°. Phương pháp vận hành chính thức là chỉ việc kéo cần điều khiển, tựa lưng vào ghế sau đó nhả ra. Quý khách có thể tận hưởng niềm vui bồng bềnh êm ái cũng như mang đến cho bạn một tâm trạng tốt. Tuy nhiên, sản phẩm cũng có những khiếm khuyết như là trọng lượng của phụ nữ thường không đủ để ép ghế thấp xuống khi cần.

3.Ghế nhân viên vỏ trứng phù hợp không gian làm việc.

Một mẫu ghế nhân viên văn phòng tốt, trước hết, cần phải được thoải mái khi ngồi làm việc. Tiếp theo là ngoại hình đẹp cũng như giá trị cao. Tuy nhiên, một chiếc ghế xoay văn phòng cao và chắc chắn, nhưng nếu căn phòng nhỏ thì cũng không phù hợp.  Ghế nhân viên dành cho nữ hình vỏ trứng không chỉ có hình dạng sinh động, mà còn giảm đáng kể không gian, đặc biệt thích hợp cho văn phòng không gian nhỏ.

4. Kết luận.

Ghế xoay nhân viên nữ hình vỏ trứng mẫu mới của Hòa Phát Group được giới thiệu thực sự dễ thương. Sản phẩm phù hợp với văn phòng có yêu cầu cao về giá trị thẩm mĩ. Mặc dù tựa lưng ngắn bù lại sự hỗ trợ của đệm ngồi đàn hồi êm ái. Kích thước nhỏ rất thích hợp để sử dụng trong một không gian nhỏ. Khi cần muốn đặt nó dưới gầm bàn, bạn cũng có thể làm giảm chiều cao của ghế. Nếu quý khách cần tìm hiểu thêm về các dòng ghế dành cho nữ xin truy cập hoaphat.website/ Hân hạnh đón tiếp bạn!

Deliveroo has now opened the doors for big-name restaurants to cook offsite in the new Editions ‘super kitchen’ where food is made specifically for delivery orders only.

Modern AI can figure out patterns, classify objects, make decisions and evaluate the results. It can learn and adapt to new situations using feedback loops. It’s awesome software. You don't need to pay someone to make an analysis then pay someone to create a piece of software then pay someone to validate the outcome then realize it’s not doing  what you expected then go back and tweak the software. That whole cycle can take years in large organizations, yet a properly designed process powered by artificial intelligence can do that in a matter of days. It can recode itself, roll the changes out, and verify if it’s actually moving the needle in a direction that you want — all at an accuracy and speed beyond human ability. Quite powerful. Quite threatening.

So instead of trying to battle Amazon using the legacy inventory model — hoping that whatever is in stores will compel customers to make purchases — retailers are focusing experience driven through convenience. To do that, retailers are reducing friction at checkout, giving customers to options to pick up or ship items to stores, and adding digital tools to help find products either in the store or online, if they’re out of stock.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: this short article is very clear: retailers are changing the "function" of their stores from inventory display to service + experience. This is made possible by large investments in technology to enable mobility in store (wifi, tablet to employees, software for employees) and links to backoffice and online systems (ERP for inventory and order management, eCommerce for online availability, same-day shipping). Of course this means huge investments that have traditionally not been made as they were considered "not useful" because not necessary in the legacy operating model.
