Overcoming Infrastructure Deficiencies in the Retail Supply Chain
The COVID-19 pandemic has had a direct impact on the retail industry in terms of consumer presence in brick-and-mortar stores, growth in eCommerce, and more, but it’s also highlighted some glaring inefficiencies and shortcomings in the industry’s supply chain.
Notably, retailers lack visibility and data regarding their supply chain and its infrastructure, leaving them largely in the dark and forcing reactive approaches to challenges as opposed to proactive ones.
Further, the industry as a whole has been slow to adopt solutions powered by artificial intelligence and machine learning that could help ease that strain and provide more actionable insights.
To explore where the retail industry needs to go from here in addressing these issues, MarketScale host Stephanie Otey invited Vikas Rajput, Vice President of Customer Success for OpsVeda, to share his expert insights.
