NEW YORK & SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--JDA Software Group, Inc., today announced a new book, “Profitable Omni-Channel For Dummies®, JDA Software Special Edition,” that discusses how to transform retailers’ businesses to compete in today’s hyper-connected, ever-complex omni-channel world. The book is a primer on delivering profitable customer commerce, and how the four pillars of omni-channel success – the store, digital commerce, fulfillment and planning – are the foundation for today’s omni-channel enterprise.
“Retailers and manufacturers have been bombarded with messaging about the new consumer ‘boss’ and how she wants what she wants when and where she wants it. That’s omni-channel, and retailers know they must give the customer what she wants if they are to stay in business,” said Wayne Usie, senior vice president, Global Industries and Value Delivery, JDA. “The problem is that most retailers are struggling to make the transition to omni-channel operations and very few are doing it profitably. We wrote this book to help retailers navigate this difficult transformation.”
The book – authored by JDA retail experts Wayne Usie, Lee Gill, Glen Ceniza and Vali Fayen – addresses retailers’ most pressing omni-channel questions such as: how should you revamp store operations to accommodate processes such as Buy Online, Pick-up In Store (BOPIS)? How do I restructure supply chain operations to handle omni-channel fulfillment? How does omni-channel merchandising impact retail planning? And, how can I offer the seamless omni-channel shopping experiences consumers demand—profitably?
The new Profitable Omni-Channel For Dummies book builds on the popularity and success of JDA’s first "For Dummies" book, "Supply Chain For Dummies." The Supply Chain For Dummies book is written in an entertaining and informative style, offering a unique perspective on how retailers and manufacturers can efficiently and profitably deliver to their customers across multiple channels.
