While every retail business is unique, they all have one thing in common: operating in a highly competitive industry changing at an extraordinary pace. Competition for diminished disposable income, combined with fast access to a universe of online deals, has empowered end consumers. Retail margins and business strategies are being tested like never before.
Success can also add complexity. As retail companies grow, the number and geographic spread of their legal entities grows as well, making it difficult to sustain a clear, unified overview. Amidst all this change, executives still need to control costs, simplify complex business processes, and improve overall performance.

"In the past, many employees had to make many calls to get the information they needed for their decisions. Today, they obtain the required data in a fast and accurate way and can use their time for more important things than gathering information."
