Retail is changing

We live in an era of digital disruption, one that is transforming our behaviors and how we interact with the world around us. It’s changing the way we discover, research, and purchase goods; and as a result, it’s now changing the way products are developed, manufactured, marketed, and delivered across the global retail sector.


As retailers seek to digitally transform their businesses, they are left to decipher evolving industry trends, a plethora of retail technology solutions, and create a strategy that will give them the resources they need to succeed today and build the foundation for the future.

Challenges facing the retail industry

In a global marketplace characterized by constant change and fierce competition for share of wallet, retailers around the world are facing mounting pressure to find solutions to address their evolving needs.

Increasing volumes of data, advancements in data analytics and intelligence, and the ubiquity of cloud computing have shifted both what customers expect, as well as how companies can meet those expectations and reinvent the value they offer. Across the board, retailers are grappling with how to equip employees with the information they need to best serve customers. And as seniors grow to occupy a larger percentage of the labor market, retailers must plan for a multi-generational salesforce.

These challenges are impacting retailers of all sizes and at every scale. Whether physical or online, retail businesses must compete aggressively to develop stronger customer relationships, improve operations, and increase sales.

  • Transparency and access have raised customer expectations
  • Digital disruption forces retailers to re-envision business models
  • Inventory optimization poses many difficulties
  • Retailers must arm employees with the right information at the right time
  • Retailers plan for a multi-generational workforce

From the macro-level trends of rising customer expectations and an evolving global workforce to the headache of system upgrades and data security, these are precisely the challenges we set out to address when we created our suite of Dynamics 365 applications. Dynamics 365 for Retail helps companies achieve the level of digital transformation necessary to thrive in an increasingly competitive retail environment without compromising on the issues that matter to C-suite executives: security, reliability, flexibility, and cost-effectiveness.
