Pseudo Customer Centricity: Fool’s Gold

Gary Hawkins on Winsight Grocery Business, CART

Retailers must employ a customer-first philosophy into organizational culture Many regional retailers are (at last!) intent on becoming customer-centric, more than a decade after The Kroger Co. led the way and more than two decades after early loyalty pioneers proved the value of a true customer focus. But too many retailers believe that customer centricity can simply be bolted on to their organizations without realizing that true customer centricity is far more involved. Like the intrepid gold miners of the 1840s, these retailers awaken to the realization that what they’ve taken for retail gold is in actuality a false promise, seduced by the fools gold of pseudo customer centricity. I can recount meetings with senior executives from well-known retailers who espouse their customer centricity efforts; spending massive sums on consultants and solutions powered by a decade’s old approach based on customer segments integrated to the retailer’s category planning processes, and even personalized offers to shoppers. Countless of these retailers remain anchored in a product-focused world, even those who tout using technology to discover what products should be put on offer to their customers rather than starting with a vendor-funded offer pool.  True disciples of customer centricity deeply embed a customer-first philosophy into their organizational culture, extending it to every part of the enterprise. These companies realize that providing savings on products relevant to the shopper is only the beginning. Leading companies such as Amazon and Kroger are investing heavily in taking customer centricity to the next level: comprehensive, seamless user experiences across channels and devices, integrating personalized product recommendations with an understanding of the individual shopper’s specific health conditions, and laying the technology foundation for immersive shopping experiences melding the physical and digital worlds. Customer first disciples understand the dynamic flow of customers and their shopping behavior over time, putting in place capabilities and processes attuned to providing contextual relevancy inside and outside the store. And personalization—driven by past purchases and recommendation algorithms—is fast evolving to what I think of as strategic hyper-personalization, leveraging vast intelligence about each individual shopper to power a mix of recommendations to win the shopping trip, grow baskets, maximize retention, and foster customer advocacy—one customer at a time, in real time. Many regional retailers are based in more rural areas where company executives believe their shoppers are less tech savvy, relieving pressure on digital imperatives. According to Pew Research, 95% of Americans own a cellphone in 2018, with 77% of Americans owning a smartphone. Pew also calls out that in 2018, 89% of Americans use the internet. Location is no longer a proxy for customer technology illiteracy.  This year, Amazon is projected to realize over $258 billion in U.S. retail sales, an estimated 49% of all online retail spending in the United States. With this kind of penetration, and the ability to ship products anywhere overnight, traditional supermarket retailers would do well to remember that their shoppers are increasingly expecting (demanding!) the seamless and comprehensive user experience provided by Amazon, and increasingly by Kroger and Walmart. Yet, too many retailers remain mired in digital purgatory, constrained by capability silos and the inability to bring piecemeal capabilities together in a seamless fashion for shoppers.  Lastly, many seasoned grocery executives have spent their careers being rewarded for following, letting someone else bring innovation to market and only following when it has been proven successful. Years ago IT executives would buy IBM, even if it wasn’t the best choice, but because it was the "safe" choice. This practice continues today as retailers sign deals with "established" providers because they believe it is the safe choice, failing to understand that today’s environment rewards fresh, forward-looking thinking. Retail executives need to look beyond yesterday’s approach to customer centricity to capabilities and platforms that actually position the retailer for future success. The cost of failing to provide a seamless shopping experience, for failing to provide true individual shopper personalization, and failing to provide real time contextual relevancy, can rapidly obliterate any savings or security from yesterday’s "proven" approach. Tom Furphy, a former Amazon executive and the originator of Amazon Fresh, in a recent interviewspeaking to the challenges retailers face today, especially a reliance on past practices, says it all: “What seems safe is actually destructive. That’s a recipe for longer term disaster.” This article originally appeared on Winsight Grocery Business and can be viewed here +MORE

The Top Five Ways Retailers Benefit from Industry Trade Shows

Courtney Muller, Chief Corporate Development & Strategy Officer, Clarion UX

When was the last time you attended a retail or food and beverage trade show? If you have to pause to think of the answer – or know immediately that the answer is, “Never” – then it might be time to find a show or expo near you. Trade shows are the best places for those within the industry to get out of their stores and network; find new products and stay abreast of the cutting edge technology offerings; and gain invaluable education in the areas you need it most. In short, even if you spend time every day trying to stay current, you could never see it all – or know what to search for. There is no better place than a trade show … from seeing new products, meeting new people, becoming educated on a new way to engage your customers, or finding out about technology … this is the place to find what you don’t know!   Here are some of the top reasons you should attend a trade show this year: Network with Decision Makers When you think of networking, perhaps the typical “mixer” scenario comes to mind with people you don’t know awkwardly milling about a bar or restaurant, trying to strike up conversations with random people in the hopes that you might be able to benefit one another in some way. Networking at a trade show couldn’t be any more different. As an attendee, you can specifically find exhibitors with the products you seek; attend educational sessions that pertain to topics you are interested in, therefore attracting other audience members who share the same challenges; and be assured that your peers in the same industry as you are seeking similar solutions as you.  And you might even run into a colleague you haven’t seen in years! Find New Products and Foods You subscribe to industry periodicals and get Google Alerts in your inbox every day, but have you seen that new robot that identifies out of stock items and potential slip and fall hazards? Have you read about leveraging data to establish loyalty and trust with food delivery customers? A trade show is the perfect venue to scope out all that is new in the retail world from tech products to new foods and services – all in one place – to help you use technology to create a seamless customer experience. As you look for new technology innovation to keep you competitive, you may find the perfect partner for online ordering, rapid delivery, or rapid checkout through customer’s smartphones.  No matter what you want to go to a trade show to find, you will likely be pleasantly surprised by discovering even more than you thought along the aisles. See New Trends in Action Are vegan offerings a must-have? Should you offer chef demonstrations to showcase meal ideas? Are international flavors high on consumer’s minds? What chef dishes are they trying replicate at home? Be on the front line of this year’s and next year’s trends so you can bank on what your customers will be looking for in the near future. You’ll walk away with new products and great ideas you can implement immediately in your store operations. You may even realize that you are on the verge of creating an entirely different trend yourself that has yet to appear on the market – good information that you can capitalize on in the year to come. Receive Best in Class Education If school is a distant memory – or perhaps you learned hands-on in a family business and worked your way up the ranks – one of the best perks of most trade shows is the educational content provided to attendees and exhibitors alike. Whether you’re interested in operational excellence, developing your workforce, building bigger baskets, or sessions dedicated to those hot new tech trends we previously mentioned, trade shows like The NGA Show (presented by the National Grocers Association) in San Diego this coming February will have you covered on all fronts. What’s more, you can connect with presenting industry specialists to gain even more valuable insight into the topics that interest you most. Gain Immediate, Actionable Ideas The bottom line … your time is valuable and you want to spend any time out of your store obtaining the cream of the crop ideas - from new products, growth strategies and tech trends. Hear what the experts have to share, sample emerging products, uncover new technology, and refresh your enthusiasm for the business. You’ll walk away with a plan to bring all of these new ideas and initiatives into your store operation to drive profits, growth and innovation.   No matter where you are in your retail career, a trade show will no doubt provide you with opportunities, education and inspiration as you progress in the business. Interested in learning more? Check out the upcoming NGA show: National Grocers Association Show, San Diego, CA, February 24-27, 2019, www.thengashow.com  Each year, The NGA Show brings together independent retailers and wholesalers, food retail industry executives, food/CPG manufacturers and service providers for unparalleled opportunities to learn, engage, share, network, and innovate.  Given today’s ever-changing marketplace and evolving advancements in innovation occurring in the food retail industry, The NGA Show is a must-attend event, providing over 40 educational workshops, an expo floor featuring innovative and game-changing products and solutions and countless networking opportunities.  Registration is open at www.thengashow.com – early bird registration rates in effect through December 10, 2018.  +MORE

Technology's Profound Impact on the Supermarket Industry

Peter Larkin, President & CEO, National Grocers Association

Often cited as the one of the greatest catalyst of change within the retail grocery industry, technology is an area that independent supermarket operators must understand, and embrace.  Technology continues to have a profound impact, where virtually every detail of the supermarket industry is being touched by new solutions and platforms. I see three technology threads, each entwined with the other. One is the explosion of mobile applications and programs that are turning grocery shoppers into high information consumers. According to Pew research, smart phone adoption among Americans has more than doubled since 2011. Not only are shoppers becoming more sophisticated, but they are using technology as a way to gain more information, transparency, and convenience. At the touch of a mobile screen, consumers can instantly access to updated information on locally sourced perishables, competitive promotions, price checks and recipe ingredient lists. In turn, this migration to the digital space is shaping customer relationships with retailers. Today’s shopper does not want to be talked to but instead wants to be a part of the conversation. Consumer product manufacturers and marketers make up a second technology thread. By analyzing large chunks of customer data and retail sales, manufacturers, retailers and service suppliers are exploring innovative ways to touch their target audiences. Big data though can be vast and hard to harness. Whether it’s social media, a mobile payment system, or loyalty programs, technology can effectively create many new opportunities for savvy retailers to learn about and to connect with their shoppers to better serve their needs. A good place to see and learn about a number of these innovative solutions is right here at www.advancingretail.org. The third thread is in the store itself, where technology is increasingly employed to improve overall store productivity to program more effective lighting, to boost checkout efficiency, to track shopper traffic flows to improve layout and sales per square foot, or to offer customers immediate cost savings via real time wifi connections as they shop. A great, and very recent, example of this is Sedano's Supermarkets launch of a “robotic supermarket,” which entails an automated fulfillment center where AI-enabled robots will assemble full supermarket orders of up to 60 items. While the landscape is quickly evolving, many independent grocers are taking advantage of cutting-edge technologies to engage with their shoppers, find efficiencies, and reach new and existing customers where, how, and when they want. Independents have been making their move into digital. They are hiring dedicated staff, dedicating marketing budgets to digital initiatives, more effectively leveraging social media platforms, and integrating the latest technologies into their business strategies.  With the dramatic pace in which new apps and tech solutions are coming on to the market, it can all seem a bit overwhelming, but technology will play a defining role in the supermarket industry.  Those retailers that are on the forefront of implementing new technology and embrace the hyper-connected, tech-savvy consumer are positioning themselves for success. I’m one who is convinced that these threads will weave into a pattern of rising sales and profits. And that’s why the 2019 NGA Show will kick-off with a new educational event, spearheaded by our partners at CART, entitled “iRetail: Technology Innovation Reshaping the Grocery Industry.” The event is designed to give supermarket operators a framework for navigating fast-paced innovation while maintaining a focus on the importance of people and physical stores as we move into the future. Despite increased competition from all angles, it is an exciting time for the supermarket industry – and we at NGA are bullish about what the future holds for the independent grocers! Known as the true entrepreneurs of the industry, independents are nimble enough to quickly overcome obstacles, and are finding innovative ways to respond to changing consumer preferences, which is something they’ve always been good at given their close ties to their communities and the consumers they serve. +MORE

Pace of Innovation -- Shattering the Status Quo

Gary Hawkins, CART

Retailers are shellshocked by the increasing pace of technology fueled innovation that is transforming and disrupting the industry. It seems not a week goes by that we don’t read about yet another new competitor entering the grocery space or some new innovation being rolled out by an existing competitor. Case in point: Kroger’s recent announcement that it is deploying its Shop, Scan, and Bag self-shopping solution at 400+ stores. This in response to Amazon’s cashier-less Go store pilot and Walmart’s similar self-shopping solution. Supermarket retailers are challenged on several fronts relative to innovation. It is nearly impossible for a retailer to be aware of all the new innovation entering the market. As an example, CART reviews an estimated 100 new solutions each month. Beyond awareness though is the challenge of deciding what areas to focus on (supply chain, distribution, marketing, store operations, etc.) and deciding what specific solution to pilot. And then having to decide what new capabilities to deploy across operating stores. Having efficient operations, quality foods, and great pricing and service is simply the cost of entry to supermarket retail. The new battleground is innovation. This is a new world for retailers to navigate. As an example, we see too many retailers implementing different digital capabilities in a piecemeal fashion rather than working towards a cohesive and comprehensive platform. The self-shopping capability mentioned earlier is a great example. Some retailers are trying to implement this kind of capability through a third-party app or a separate app rather than bundling it into one mobile app for their customers. Shoppers are after an omni-channel, seamless experience, not being forced to interact with different apps or systems to do business with a retailer. CART is here to help. We’re able to leverage our strong retail experience, industry knowledge, and unique insight to new capabilities and innovation flowing into the market to help retailers understand where they are today relative to their competitors and best-in-class retailers. Developing an innovation roadmap is important to help in prioritizing what new innovation to focus on and to create a foundation capable of adapting to new capabilities and technologies as they come into the market. +MORE

How Marketers Can Use Augmented Reality to Their Advantage

Serena Garner, Y Media Labs

The world of advertising has been in the midst of developing for several years now. With the multitude of types of media vying for consumer attention, top creative digital agencies are rushing to keep up with innovation at every turn. One of the most recent strategies to emerge is augmented reality companies launching marketing campaigns with everyday brands. Untouched Marketing Potential Augmented reality truly entered the consumer conscious with the advent of Pokémon Go. In the game, adding imagery to the real world encourage users to immerse themselves more fully and engage more greatly with the experience. This is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the possibilities augmented reality offers. The marketing potential for augmented reality enhancement is predicted to be almost a trillion-dollar industry in the next ten years. As brands discover new ways to integrate their messaging with how users consume media, augmented reality will create incredibly detailed advertising experiences tailored to individual consumers. American consumption of media has reached an all time high, and augmented reality offers the promise of sustained contact and connection at any time of day. Major companies are already exploring new ways of enhancing shopping experiences. Products like Google Lens, which can identify objects with a phone camera, will provide instant access to consumers to a wealth of information about what product they’re focusing on. Meanwhile, the marketers utilizing this technology gain consumer insights, like how long users are viewing their products and what other products they viewed, all in real-time. By integrating this idea with  glasses equipped with augmented reality software, the way we see the world will be changed.  The headset market is already projected to hit 500 million sales in the next ten years. Bringing augmented reality technology outside of the smartphone expands its application, utility, and ease of use for consumers. Understanding Consumers Like Never Before Apple has released ARKit, a new platform for developers to create augmented reality experiences. The framework can recognize the visual space around an iPad and blend new objects and information directly into this real-world setting. What the ARKit’s development signifies is the start of shopping and advertising becoming an immersive experience. With augmented reality technology becoming more accessible, it makes it easier for marketers to harness its power for highlighting brands in stores or even sending information and imagery to headsets as customers walk down the street. With augmented reality development, the opportunity also exists for enhancing a brand’s market research. With integration of GPS, for instance, a company can know where a consumer is located at a given moment and then offer nearby discounts or opportunities. As they build detailed consumer profiles, they will be able to not only respond to individual needs, but also anticipate them. These new products will use machine learning and artificial intelligence processes to deliver the things that matter to consumers most. Imagine reading a book review, then being offered ways to purchase the book seamlessly. Or, watching a video about a vacation spot, and your augmented reality glasses highlight a travel agency when you pass one later in the day. Augmented reality takes the pre-existing benefits of audience targeting and increases them by providing  immediate feedback based on real-time behavior. Online shopping will become a more confidence-inducing experience, too. Imagine being able to see how a sofa will look in your living room in accurate scale and design before you get it home. Already, shoemakers are offering customizing opportunities that let buyers see completed designs before they’ve ordered. This  reduces product returns and increases sales conversions, which all hints at improved customer satisfaction and loyalty. Managing an AR Marketing Strategy Another opportunity for innovation will be companies that understand how to make sense of all this data for the consumer. Instead of being bombarded by floating ads, highlighted merchandise, or random media at every turn, consumers will need trusted software that will curate all this information into a more streamlined, personalized experience. These firms will join forces with brands and companies to provide creative, informative, and customizable augmented reality experiences with enormous sales potential. Marketing professionals will need to be work with both the management platforms and brands to produce strategies that target consumers with precision. Additionally, they will need at least a basic understanding of augmented reality technology, its related hardware, and how best to utilize its features for improving their marketing strategy. AR Marketing is Already Happening A recent DeLoitte survey demonstrates that companies are moving into the augmented reality space. Almost 90% of mid-size firms surveyed indicated that they are already deploying augmented and virtual reality enhancements to their products and marketing. The time is now for exploring how your brand will leverage augmented reality in a marketing strategy. This can pertain to advertising, how people interact with your products or services, or any other form of augmented reality’s vast applications. Regardless of the route you take, augmented reality continues to prove its potential in marketing as an engagement and ROI booster. +MORE

Adroit™

Gravity Jack

ADROIT TECHNOLOGY AND BUSINESS GROUP The Adroit Technology and Business Group is engaging with a select group of industry leaders that have been tackling challenging use cases for AR object detection and robotic machine vision. We are focused on solving complex problems with progressive partners -- ones who see AR coupled with 6DOF (6 Degrees of Freedom) object intelligence as offering a transformative competitive advantage. The near-term focus will be on developing select, targeted and custom solutions that employ Adroit to solve high value problems. We welcome you to reach out to us for consideration as a foundational partner, as we build this portfolio of solutions.  AR ASSISTED MAINTENANCE Adroit identifies complex components within larger systems, in varying lighting conditions -- even if visibility is impacted by dirt and oil. Adroit was developed with real world industrial use cases in mind, including field maintenance of critical industrial machinery.  AR ENABLES RETAIL SALES Adroit enhances the showroom sales process, allowing customization or feature exploration of physical products with customers. For instance, Adroit can assist a salesperson in helping customers select and visualize a range of wheels, features and colors of a car in real time.  AR POWERED PRODUCTION LINES Assist front-line workers with clear and timely processes, with only a glance. Adroit can identify and understand 3D objects at 30 frames per second with 6DOF, allowing the system to help workers pick correct parts, products and more - meaning costly error reduction, elimination of line stoppages and increased quality assurance.  ADVANCED MACHINE VISION FOR AUTONOMOUS ROBOTICS The next industrial revolution is coming. Robots and drones will solve problems and perform tasks the way that we humans do. The key to this revolution is getting robots to ‘see’ and have an intelligence of the real world and objects within it. Not simply recognizing them, but understanding these objects in ways similar to the human brain. Adroit enables robots to understand how potential multi-modal objects fit and work together independently, as well as holistically. Applications for this class of robotics span food production, building and construction, search and rescue, and defense/security. The technology will be essential to autonomous remote robotic missions, accessing areas and objects inhospitable for humans - from deep-sea drilling to Mars.  AUGMENTED REALITY  In addition to fully-custom solutions, our proprietary Adroit™ technology detects the precise pose any real world, 3D object -- regardless of size, moving parts, texture, lighting conditions & more.  VIRTUAL REALITY  Immerse users in a 360º, fully-virtual experience.

Spatial Experiences - Communal frictionless experiences for physical commerce. Deviceless Mixed Reality for the masses.  SPACEE VISUAL RETAIL SOLUTIONS: Mixed Reality Interactive surfaces become even more exciting when products and media are merged to create immersive interactive experiences. This technology may be implemented on more complex 3D surfaces, such as furniture, beds or cars, or on items the size of a cereal box. The end result is a user experience designed to digitally enhance the product, using the product as the screen without altering the physical product attributes.  Simulated Reality  Simulated device interface replaces the actual device with a 3D printed or injection-molded plastic replica having the same shape and size. Using our interactive projection and virtual touch technology, an image of the original object is projected onto the plastic device, creating a realistic and interactive experience that looks and behaves like the real product, but is enhanced by a scripted experience that can do more than a real product. In this example, the technology is used on products like a thermostat, smoke alarm, computer display or cell phone screen. These techniques create infinite options for a business to implement a true “endless aisle” experience. Endless Aisle Is it possible to utilize a limited space and show all production variations available without requiring the customer to use his or her mobile device? Yes you can! Spacee leads this category by providing technology to give the customer control of an experience and see all possible product variations. This can be done in 2D or 3D space. Spacee can use real world existing items as the information conduit or a 2D interactive surface that mimics a giant touchscreen that is virtually unbreakable. Touch Wall  Turn any wall into a larger than life touch-Wall. Spacee creates larger than life touchscreens that are computer vision based. Setup is quick and any wall instantly becomes a giant interactive display. A computer vision based interactive surface is inexpensive compared to a compacitive touch screen. The best part? A FrictionFree TouchWall cannot break like a tablet or touch enabled TV. Touch Glass  Spacee’s “FrictionFree TouchGlass” technology turns any size glass surface into an interactive touch screen creating a world of possibilities to engage your customers … all through the power of light. The Spacee interactive display experiences grab and hold attention longer, giving anyone the opportunity to touch brands in fun and delightful ways. Brands in return get a larger window to tell their stories and make memories in the minds of customers. +MORE

Digital Solution - Web Design, Landing Page, Appointment

CommGate (S) Pte. Ltd.

Website Design A website’s design will make visitors decide whether to stay in your site and take action or leave – it’s as simple as that. If your website is not designed to provide a great experience for your visitors, then you are losing traffic to your competitors. Studies show that “user-centered” web design is crucial to keeping visitors on your site.  Fully Featured Website CommGate offers unlimited range of website themes for all businesses’ needs. But if you still want a designer look for your website, we’ve got that covered too. A beautiful, interactive and organized website attracts consumers to revisit your site and create higher website traffic.  Responsive Website A responsive website attracts visitors on any device with no effort. CommGate implements fully responsive website design that requires little to no technical knowledge when you are looking to update your site. Website visitors are provided with a user-friendly experience across all devices.  Build Your Audience The time and effort you put into your website is pointless if nobody is visiting your site. This is why SEO is important for your business. Instead of looking for customers, SEO bring customers to you. Imagine when your potential customers search online for the products/services you are offering and your website appears. The closure rate is very high as you are linking up with this group of customers who are already searching for your products/services. Landing Page  A well-designed landing page can greatly increase your conversions for your campaigns. Rather than directing visitors from different sources to your general website, you can direct them to a specially designed landing page that steers your target customers in exactly the direction you want.   We develop mobile-responsive landing pages Appointment Booking Software Simplify or automate the process of scheduling appointment bookings! Rising costs and a slowing economy may be some of the biggest concern for small medium enterprises on a shoestring budget. Especially with a low 2% of unemployment rate in Singapore, there is no doubt that it is critical that all businesses automate with technology to keep businesses efficient and overheads low. With smart choices and the correct technology, businesses can actually achieve outstanding productivity and increase efficiency while maintaining an edge over their competitors. Easing your customers with bookings also equate to better branding & an increased percentage of bookings. +MORE
