Today’s Retailer Challenges

The fact is, legacy software is holding great retailers back. We are living in a time of significant technological transformation, and many retailers find it hard to keep up with the fast pace of the change. Legacy software presents the following challenges for retailers:

  1. Current software solutions are fragmented, too many vendors
    • Lack of integration (multiple forecasting systems)
    • Finger pointing between vendors is common
  2. Master data is replicated, managed redundantly
  3. Legacy platforms hard to replace, entrenching bad processes
    • Finding capable talent (i.e., Cobol/RPG coders) hard to do
  4. Maintaining old software uses budget needed for innovation
    • Replacement systems are difficult to financially justify
  5. Legacy systems lack key technologies such as AI, Mobile, etc.
  6. Inefficient, people and paper intensive business processes, and dependencies on external solutions like Microsoft Excel, have developed around these platforms
  7. Shopper support systems are siloed, resulting in disparate, mono-channel experiences vs. omni-channel experiences
