Amazon and Walmart: Facing the Titans

“Omnichannel changes the way we do business.”

We all have watched Amazon change the retail landscape (The Amazon Effect) and the way business is done (The Amazon Cure) but now these innovations require a response. All companies in retail, B2B and consumer products must face the Amazon and Walmart titans. Amazon is able to inexpensively offer customers same-day delivery, while Walmart is making huge strides in using omnichannel innovations.

“Speed of delivery depends on customer expectations.”

This video explains the disruptions the titans are causing, and most importantly, it presents the elements of how you can effectively respond. Your company needs a strategy and an action plan that uniquely meets the requirements of your customer.
