Most brands today interact with their consumers across different channels and touch-points - Social, Web, Kiosks, Call Centers, Stores, Mobile etc. It is not enough for brands to operate subsets of these channels as independent businesses as consumers expect to be treated to an orchestrated experience across these different touch-points.
The first wave of Omni-channel commerce was about establishing basic cross-channel transaction capabilities and foundations around a common product master or a 360 degree view of the customer. The next wave will be around "getting personal" - Offers, Products, Experience, and Campaigns built around a common "personalization and offer management" engine; the intelligence of the engine directly affecting increased conversions. The webinar will, through case studies, talk about the above opportunities and challenges; and also the associated technologies that support in building these required capabilities.
