Jagged Peak to Co-host Webinar with FitForCommerce on the Keys to Succeeding in Omnichannel Retail
Webinar to focus on omnichannel challenges and the critical role the order management system plays.
Tampa, FL (PRWEB) July 09, 2013
Jagged Peak, Inc. (OTC BB: JGPK), a leading provider of enterprise-class eCommerce solutions and supply chain services, announced today that it has teamed with eCommerce consulting firm, FitForCommerce, to co-sponsor a webinar on the key success factors for omnichannel retailing. The webinar is free, but requires registration.
Called “The Brains Behind Omnichannel Retailing: Uncovering the Real Omnichannel Challenges and Keys to Success,” the webinar will be held on July 18 from 2:00 – 3:00 p.m. EST. It will leverage key findings from a recent survey revealing that 69 percent of retailers don’t think their current systems are equipped to handle omnichannel requirements. The webinar will focus on the importance of the order management system and feature the experiences of fashion brand Vince Camuto as it looks to enter the realm of omnichannel retail.
The webinar expands on findings published earlier this year in a FitForCommerce white paper by the same name. It includes retailer survey results and provides recommendations for building the infrastructure and operations necessary for successful omnichannel retailing, including how the Order Management System (OMS) can make it easier for retailers to provide the operational links between retail channels that are necessary to gain visibility into orders, inventory and customer data across the entire retail enterprise and all of the extended fulfillment options afforded the omnichannel shopper.
“While it may not be the most glamorous piece of the equation, the OMS is arguably the most necessary enabling factor in omnichannel retailing,” says Jagged Peak CSMO Vince Fabrizzi. “It is the brain that controls this complex process—orchestrating multi-channel order capture and aggregation, while providing real-time inventory visibility across all stocking points, including warehouses, stores, drop shippers or elsewhere, to give the customer channel-neutral options for acquiring the products they purchase.”
