Retail

We bring the experience, skills and capabilities needed for retail organisations to deliver their ‘digital first’ strategy.

The digital revolution has accelerated transformation within the retail sector…

Customer shopping habits are changing, online and in-store experiences have to be seamless, competition is becoming more dynamic and employees need to deliver better customer service than ever before. Pure digital retailers are opening physical stores, and traditional retailers need to excel in their online approach. Whichever type of retail business you are, the challenge is to create a frictionless omnichannel shopping experience that supports and inspires customers however they choose to shop. To fulfil their ambition retailers must be able to access end to end digital capabilities and skills across their business.

Sopra Steria can help you define the right digital transformation roadmap

For digital transformation to succeed, retailers need to balance the basics, plan for the future and identify opportunities for innovation. Any programmes of change must be aligned with clear business goals and have the ability to be integrated in store, online and throughout the supply chain. For retailers to achieve their digital transformation goals solutions must be scalable, adaptable and rapidly operational within the wider retail ecosystem.

Working as a strategic partner to retailers, Sopra Steria offers all these capabilities. We guide our clients through the transformation of their business models, covering the processes, technology and data required to achieve change. By applying our domain, digital, customer and technology expertise we’re able to help retailers define the right digital transformation roadmap based on their strategy. Then, when it comes to execution, we make sure you achieve your IT, financial and business goals whilst controlling costs and improving the customer shopping experience.
