In an increasingly digital market, consumers can access an inexhaustible supply from a multitude of retailers in just a few clicks. In this highly competitive environment, the (cross-channel) customer journey increasingly becomes the factor determining the success or failure of a retailer. Customer demands are rising rapidly. The issue is not just whether the digital functions and channel-linking services considered relevant from the shopper point of view are offered, but also what kind of quality the shopper experiences when using them. Only those who can successfully turn the shoppers’ search and buying process in every channel and across channels into a seamless and excellent experience will be able to prevail in the digital market environment. 

The OMNICHANNEL EXPERIENCE INDEX 2018 delivers a comprehensive picture of the fashion industry’s current development status and forms the basis for a company-specific benchmark analysis for concept creation and ongoing monitoring. This White Paper gives you a taste of some of the elements of the customer journey, presented in the form of a summary index of all analysed companies. If you are interested in an individual benchmark comparison of your company against selected competitors in your home market or market participants in the US, please do not hesitate to contact us.

    Görtz and Wortmann change the industry through a joint project "Process optimization for planning and controlling the goods"

    The question of how to remain competitive and position itself for the future occupies shoe retailers and manufacturing companies alike. For this reason, it is necessary to regularly question existing strategies and concepts and to develop them if necessary. In the footwear industry, optimizing the value chain provides many opportunities to improve outcomes for both the trading and industry partners. With this maxim, the companies Görtz and Wortmann Schuh-Holding commissioned us to revise the existing processes and to identify potential in a joint project.
    It's likely to attract attention in the industry, as this close collaboration between two partners with supposedly different interests will further develop and revolutionize the industry. Because the goal of providing the right product at the right place, at the right time and in the right quantity is now achievable. In various workshops with a team from both companies, a process for the future planning and control of the goods was developed. The binding nature of the availability of goods and thus planning security was in the foreground. Without mutual understanding, more transparency on both sides and an honest exchange, this goal would not have been achievable. In the future, a joint limit and inventory planning will be created that sets concrete monthly goals for the entire season. This is matched in the Vororder, but also extends over the entire Nachorder, so that can be continuously adjusted depending on the actual season course.
