CIO Retail Summit Europe | November 6, 2018 | City, TBD,



On-line and On-premise Retail Integration

Think Tank - 11:35 am - 12:00 pm

Online retailers are exerting serious pressure on those with bricks and mortar stores and as a result many “traditional” retailers are heavily investing in their own online retail channels. Operating in a dual channel mode however reduces the impact and value of these initiatives as studies show that where on-line and on-premise retailing is tightly integrated, through offerings such as “Buy Online, Pickup in Store” see as much as a 4% sales uplift. To be able to provide this tight integration however retailers must ensure that they can provide real time comprehensive inventory updates, a consistent experience across both channels.


  • Well integrated channels drive greater revenue as a result of higher in-store sales though at the expense of some online sales
  • In store increase come from greater opportunity for upsell / cross sell while online decreases are the result of greater cart abandonment
  • An inability to provide consistent and real-time inventory information is the single biggest impediment to channel integration
