Digging DEEP: Achieving Omnichannel Resilience

Digging DEEP: Achieving Omnichannel Resilience

Earlier this week, Sam Iosevich and Marty Anderson participated in a virtual networking event hosted by Parker Avery partner Synoptek, a global systems integrator (GSI) and managed IT services provider (MSP). This invitation-only, private event was titled, “Reimagining Retail in 2020 and Beyond: Strategies To Modernize, Adapt and Weatherproof Retail Operations,” and included break-out sessions including:

  • Delivering a world-class omnichannel retail experience
  • Leading with an efficient supply chain to optimize your business
  • Improving the shopping experience with AR/AI
  • Reducing risks by managing your inventory effectively in the age of COVID-19
  • Understanding who is coming into your store through thermal sensors
  • Strategic expansion through mergers
  • The evolving modern e-commerce platform
  • Demand analytics

According to Marty, “The event was a fast and fun way to meet many retail leaders in a short period to assess support needs and potential partnership compatibility. Imagine virtual a ‘speed-dating’ event if you will. We had approximately 8 minutes with each leader to introduce ourselves and our offerings and listen to what they are currently working on, as well as where they may need partnership for future projects. We were also able to meet many new retail leaders of business models that we normally haven’t had exposure to through our normal networking channels. I’m looking forward to following up with some of these leaders to discuss further their business challenges and how Parker Avery can help move them forward.”
