In a previous post, I talked about the basics of integration, a term used every day in business that many folks don’t understand very well. As part of the post, I offered a simple definition of integration, which I’ll repeat here: An integration is simply moving data from one system to another. When I integrate two systems, they are simply sharing data back and forth.

In any discussion of integration, two other terms usually emerge: APIs (application programming interfaces) and web services.

In pursuit of the omnichannel shopping Holy Grail, retailers often focus on the front-end customer experience with slick ecommerce websites, mobile apps, digital marketing and interactive brick-and-mortar store experiences.

Yet the front end is only part of the equation for retail success. As the Dell Boomi retail team confirmed at NetSuite’s SuiteWorld conference in Las Vegas last month, top retailers pay equal attention to back-end processes, from business-to-business (B2B) transactions to supply chain management.

How NetSuite Retailers Can Deliver an Omnichannel Customer Experience

Posted by Rebecca Whitlatch on April 30th, 2018

Retailers running Oracle NetSuite have a sound enterprise resource planning (ERP) foundation for financial, inventory and order management. NetSuite also provides ecommerce, point-of-sale (POS) and customer relationship management (CRM) capabilities, but many retailers elect to use best-of-breed software for those functions. Often, third-party marketing automation software will also be in place.

That introduces challenges in how merchants can meet rising customer expectations for a seamless omnichannel experience. Integration that connects NetSuite with disparate systems is mandatory for retailers to gain a unified 360-degree customer view and deliver personalized engagement across all channels.

Consumers generate data every time they interact with a brand. Clicking a digital ad, browsing a website, cashing out at a brick-and-mortar store, or using a retailer’s mobile app…each interaction creates a veritable gold mine of information that retailers and consumer goods companies can use to drive sales.

If properly harnessed, that data provides the foundation for customer experience management (CEM) — the ability to understand consumer behavior and preferences, create a unified 360-degree customer view, and generate insights for consistent, personalized engagement across any channel.
