At the retail industry’s global showcase, Fujitsu is emphasizing that it remains the only market player capable of delivering retailers’ total requirements for core IT backbone infrastructure and services, through store management applications to shop floor solutions. Having the broadest range of IT solutions and services enables Fujitsu to transform retail performance from the digital core for operational excellence of retailers’ processes, through to front-end digitalization projects to drive an improved customer experience.
Highlights from Fujitsu on show at EuroShop 2020 include:
Visitors to the Fujitsu booth will also meet Fujitsu’s best-of-breed partners in its Connected Retail ecosystem. This exciting initiative is building on Fujitsu’s insight that retailers must react quickly to customers’ radically evolving expectations and demands to remain relevant and successful. This vision was set out recently in a thought-provoking white paper for retail industry strategists, “Fujitsu Future Insights – Digital Transformation in Retail”.
The white paper argues that society is evolving, and this is overturning many of the basic assumptions on which mass-market retailing was built. By 2030, retailers will be responding to the simultaneous demands of six generations of consumers, each with differing values and discontinuously changing behaviors. In particular, the future will belong to those retailers who understand and respond to consumers’ concerns about trust and social responsibility.
Ralf Schienke, Head of Retail & Hospitality Sector Sales, Fujitsu Central Europe, says: “At EuroShop 2020 we are emphasizing that Fujitsu remains the only genuinely end-to-end provider of retail solutions and services. Alongside the breakthrough innovations we are showing, such as quantum-inspired retail optimization, the store operations cockpit and supplier portals, we will also be explaining the power of our Connected Retail future vision for the sector to retailers. This equips them with a framework to build long-lasting, effective strategic responses to the challenges they face today. Retailers that don’t recognize the need to transform will find themselves increasingly sidelined, and unable to regain losses in market share or credibility.”
