The proliferation of new distribution channels makes the retail environment increasingly challenging. Capgemini helps retailers identify the most flexible and efficient ways to engage with customers across all channels.
How retail channels are changing
Consumer products and retail is an exciting place. The industry is undergoing significant transformation largely because of the way that consumers choose to shop and consume. They are enabled with technology that allows them to approach the shopping process in a different way than they have in the past.
The bottom line: shoppers are no longer loyal to an individual channel, but rather to an experience across channels.

Helping companies strengthen their retail channels
We work with hundreds of retailers around the world to develop and strengthen their channels to market. Increasingly, our work with clients is focused on developing effective integrated all-channel retail strategies.
Examples of client success:
- We helped Spanish fashion retailer Desigual set up a B2B channel for multi-brand stores and sales representatives
- We worked with a leading apparel retailer to identify and understand the needs of its online customers and develop a roadmap for building its web presence.
- For a large consumer electronics retailer, we helped create order management capabilities across multiple sales channels. This resulted in lower overall inventory costs and provided customers with the option to "buy anywhere, pick up anywhere, return anywhere".
