Time: Thursday, January 14 at 12:00 p.m. – 12:30 p.m. ET
Abstract: Never before have agility and profitability been more critical to omnichannel operations. Retailers and distributors that can manage the lifecycle of a customer order, any place and time, and maximize profitability are best positioned to thrive. An agile, next-gen order management system (OMS) is the key to delivering customer-centric commerce and maximizing gross margin return on inventory investment (GMROII). Without it, you are stuck looking in the rearview mirror.
