Resolving the collaboration conundrum to deliver sustained customer value,

is #Digitaligence at work!

Trade collaborations have existed for as long as the industry itself – the rise of the digital consumer has however revealed yawning gaps in effective collaboration. In the age of omni-channel consumerism, retailers need to guarantee products are available at the right time, through the right channel and at the right price.

Retailers partner with ITC Infotech to effectively bridge this gap – and have realized measurable results – an assured 10-15% impact on top-line, 40% faster new-product rollouts and an 8% on-shelf availability.

ITC Infotech delivers a unified commerce and collaboration platform combining the best of B2C and B2B UX practices – delivering a world-class B2B commerce experience online.

ITC INFOTECH APPLIES DIGITALIGENCE ACROSS COLLABORATION FACETS

BUSINESS CHALLENGES

  • People:
    Absence of cultural buy-in, stakeholder commitment and third-party transactional approach breeds distrust.
  • Processes:
    Varied states of process maturity, internal functional states of wide complexity and the absence of studies to map internal and partner processes make the experience long drawn.
  • Technology:
    Disparate business systems and complex technology landscape across proprietary, customs and SaaS makes data integration challenging.
  • Business operations:
    Business and supply chain disruption risks, complex operating models and business operations minimize visibility of perceived benefits.
