The demands of today’s consumer
Today’s digitally savvy consumers have full control over what, when, where, how, and why they buy. As the line between physical and digital interactions becomes increasingly blurred, their expectations continue to grow. If you don’t provide the value and convenience they demand—on every channel they use—your customers will simply go elsewhere.
Your ultimate success or failure hinges on making the customer the central focus of every aspect of your business. A digital approach allows you to:
“Customer first” is redefining retail.
Digital transformation means going beyond the customer experience to radically reshape the way retailers do business.
Organizations today recognize the importance of becoming more customer-centric. This has led to an increased focus on gleaning insights related to customers’ behaviors and preferences, from massive volumes of data obtained during, and after each shopping activity
These insights help organizations serve personalized and contextualized offers to customers, thereby leading to increased value and immensely delightful transactions, which keeps customers coming back.
This profitable demand, of course, spells good news for business bottomline. Personalized offers are immensely effective in Influencing customer behavior at the point of purchase. The result?
These personalized offers are created in real time by combining the consumer’s shopping context and location with the company’s knowledge of the customer’s profile, preferences, and purchase history along with in-store product availability.

Customer Needs, Met Effectively.
Win over demanding shoppers – with our customer-centric merchandising solutions for retail.
Customers’ needs and wants seem to fluctuate constantly. But their expectations for quality, selection, and service only seem to increase.
If you are a midsized retailer, you face the same challenges as national chains when it comes to planning, procuring, supplying, and selling.
But midsize retailers usually have disparate legacy systems and fewer resources – people, time, and budgets – to overcome those challenges.
To win the competition for customers, midsized retailers must provide more enjoyable and differentiated experiences than national chains.
Midsized retailers must also improve operating efficiencies, make accurate informed decisions based on real time information, and put action plans in motion quickly.
A single platform, integrated enterprise resource planning (ERP) system helps retailers to do exactly that.
- With years of expertise selling and implementing SAP Retail Solutions at midsized retailers, Savantis Group understands their needs and speaks the language.
