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

Motion Code - Securing online payments  IDEMIA is full of innovative minds. And thanks to them, we have developed a seamless way to drastically enhance the security of Card-Not-Present (CNP) transactions. Motion Code cardholders will find that the traditional static 3-digit security code on the back of their card has been replaced by a mini-screen displaying a code, which automatically refreshes every hour. This solution renders copying of card information useless. By the time would-be fraudsters try to use it, the stolen number will have already changed several times. Biometric Payment Card - Turning your fingerprint into your PIN  Technology is changing the way humans can identify themselves. The use of biometrics improves security and usability of our identity – with the press of a finger, or the scan of a retina – and ensures that it remains your own.  Digital Banking - Providing trusted digital banking experiences  IDEMIA assists the financial sector in ensuring security and trust for their customers’ entire digital journey, from customer registration to the delivery of trusted services (strong authentication, digital signature and proof management, legally binding archiving, etc.). IDEMIA's identification and trust services platform can be used to deploy countless applications, including new customer digital onboarding, sensitive operation approval (e.g. transfer orders, payments), secure multichannel cash management (SWIFTNet/FileAct, EBICS), authentication for online payments, multichannel online contracting for all types of financial products (loans, savings, life insurance), etc.  Subscription Management - Managing connectivity with ease  IDEMIA, with its subscription management platform and DakOTa eUICC, established a turnkey solution allowing mobile operators to remotely allocate subscriptions to connected objects. This comprehensive solution offers the most efficient, secure and transparent technology possible to serve the connectivity needs of mobile operators and to deliver a seamless experience to end-users.  Mobile Identity - Accessing online services in a convenient and secure way Accessing online services in a convenient and secure way  IDEMIA’s Mobile Identity is a digital ID created by a mobile operator to enable users to access online services in a secure, private and convenient way, using their mobile devices. Establishing trusted identities is an absolutely vital step brought by IDEMIA KYC (Know Your Customers) digital identity solution. It is the most effective way of knowing who is in control of any networked device starting with the registration of the customer by the operator, using their official ID documents and, when possible, their biometrics. This can be done on-site with fingerprint scanners and document authentication or remotely using the user mobile device. It is then followed by the verification of those elements and the generation of a unique Digital ID. This is safely managed by the operator and available for the customer on their mobile - users can use this Mobile ID to authenticate to eServices using their mobile number along with a unique PIN or their biometrics.  Mobile Financial Services - Managing your money on your mobile  Through NFC, QR-code or mobile wallet technology, IDEMIA allows mobile operators to provide consumers with a convenient way to pay for goods and services, transfer and receive money and access mainstream financial services including loans, savings and insurance. IDEMIA enables MNOs to deliver a wide range of financial services from person-to- person transfers to bill payments, via multiple channels. For example, along with Etisalat, IDEMIA has launched the first mobile wallet service in UAE, transforming the way a whole country pays for products everyday in a secure way.  PEARL Connect - Powering your devices with secure contactless services & connectivity  PEARL Connect by IDEMIA combines security capabilities of previous PEARL eSE generations with eSIM capabilities for seamless management of connectivity to cellular networks. It enables manufacturers to produce connected objects such as smartphones, smart watches and laptops with a dedicated interface to integrate payment, access control, transport and many other functions securely. PEARL Connect also comes with strong means of authentication, including state-of- the-art biometrics.  IoThrive - Ensuring security from connected devices to the cloud  IoThrive is a solution designed by IDEMIA which enables management of the entire security chain in the Internet of Things from hardware to services on networks such as LPWAN (LoRa, Sigfox), Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. IoThrive allows users to access and holistically manage an IoT environment, safe in the knowledge that the digital identity or cloud services on the network are authenticated and secure.  3D Face Recognition - Enhancing accuracy and convenience with advanced liveness detection  IDEMIA’s new 3D Face Recognition solution allows an enhanced accurate biometric authentication that combines speed and robustness. It calculates the precise 3D geometry of the face captured by a dedicated 3D sensor. The unique facial features of the user are then compared with the ones already stored in the device for instant matching. This solution targets OEMs. MorphoCivis Suite - Ensuring trusted and reliable identities  Field proven, MorphoCivis Suite allows modular adaptation and close control of costing while ensuring consistent and excellent quality. The produced ID has the potential to be used in a plethora of ways – to access financial services; to travel (accessing automated border control), to securely access online services using authentication factors (such as fingerprints or face recognition) and devices (smartphones, tablets, etc.).  LASINK - Preventing forgery of identity documents  DEMIA’s LASINK feature has been designed to be used either by our own personalization service centers or to equip national printing houses willing to enhance the security level of their documents. Not only is LASINK improving the security of the identity document, it is also facilitating the automated verification of its authenticity thus expediting passport verification at borders as well as allowing users to access online services securely and without hindrance.  Selfie-Check - Providing fast registration and online authentication  Not only this, the creative minds at IDEMIA have upgraded their Selfie Check so that, when asking for authentication, the phone will ask you to move your head to the left, right or downwards; or maybe a combination of the three. By requesting random head movements, the selfie-check ensures that the user is a real and a live person. With this solution, users can now remotely and securely confirm their identity either against a central biometric database or against an identity document, e.g. a passport. From now on, from the comfort of your home, you can create a secure digital identity to access further online services. Forget the queues, forget the stress!  Video Investigation - Analyzing video data to accelerate investigations  Video analysis is a major forensic resource that has changed the way crimes and cases are investigated. As technology introduces new image sources such as the 200 million cameras deployed worldwide in public places but also video coming from smartphones and social media, analyst and investigators are becoming increasingly outpaced by the volume of video evidence. IDEMIA’s Video and Image Analytic Platform is streamlining and speeding up the process. Relying on embedded algorithms, analysts can process video sequences by detecting, recording and classifying the depicted elements of interest. As they sort through volumes of raw data, they can start a review based on the most relevant data, find clues faster and exploit their findings more quickly. This system provides law enforcement and the intelligence community with the tools to detect and deter criminal activity and protect critical infrastructure and public safety.  MorphoPass - Facilitating airport passengers’ journeys  MorphoPass manages the different stages in a passenger‘s journey through an airport, based on biometric identification. It offers enhanced quality of service for travelers at every step making the crossing of checkpoints faster and less intrusive at bag drop, airside access and passport control, as well as at boarding control. Because of the automation and traceability of all passenger checks, MorphoPass is the ideal solution for airlines, airports, regulators and passengers. It also comprises a central system that manages passenger identification through all the identity checks needed for authentication and identification of the passenger.  MorphoWave - Capturing fingerprints on the move in less than 1 second   The business world is a bustling, busy place and no one has a second to waste. IDEMIA tapped into its innovation hub to create a frictionless security system for some of the busiest enterprises in the world. As employees enter office buildings, MorphoWave relies on a patented, truly contactless technology to accurately capture and match four fingerprints with a single hand movement and grant or deny access. The world’s first contactless fingerprint access solution helps companies boost efficiency without sacrificing security. The dynamic, touchless acquisition capability allows users to remain ‘on the move’ when passing through a control point, making it ideal for securing high traffic areas.  IdentoGO Enrollment Services - Providing access for identity-related services  Our expertise is deeply rooted in biometric technology, specifically, the secure capture and transmission of electronic fingerprints for employment, certification, licensing and other verification purposes. We are a trusted and an authorized service provider for the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and one of the few companies approved to submit fingerprints to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) as well as receive criminal history record information back from the FBI.  Mobile Driver’s License -Securing and digitizing your driver’s license  Just as your physical driver’s license is more than a photo on a card, IDEMIA’s mobile driver’s license combines breakthrough smartphone technology and biometrics that are linked and layered dynamically when the ID is presented. This assures you have a trusted credential that can be quickly authenticated, by machine or in-person, by retailers, bankers or law enforcement officers.  ID-One PIV - Creating and managing secure and personalized access cards  ​Personal Identification and Verification (PIV) smart cards are an essential part of U.S. Federal Government security. These ID credentials contain all the necessary data to grant cardholders access to facilities and information systems. The adaptable settings also ensure that only individuals with certain levels of security clearance have access to private rooms and confidential information. Ultimately, these credentials provide identity proofing, general authentication services and secure post issuance management. IDEMIA’s solutions not only ensure that PIV smartcards are in compliance with current guidelines and technical specifications, but we make it our goal to exceed the latest government standards. +MORE

The next step is to implement the Blockchain technology to other operations of our company, including hotel booking, travel insurance, and virtual currency. Enterprises may face some technical difficulties while integrating Blockchain technology, the first step is to choose from Public Blockchain, Private Blockchain, or Consortium Blockchain. Our partner, AMIS, provided a complete and private Blockchain structure service and API, so enterprises do not need to construct their own Blockchain network, nodes verifications and backups, nor develop Smart Contracts. Public Blockchain usually has issues with unstable transaction speed and cost, but the private Consortium Blockchain of AMIS not only increases the transaction efficiency, but also controls cost. For most enterprises, the complete API of AMIS further enhances the usability and fault tolerance of the service. Enterprises are able to implement existed data onto the Blockchain, and the customers can then update information on the database.  ​Ethereum is the base technology of AMIS Blockchain, and different application programs or units can communicate on the database. Ethereum uses ethash, an updated GHOST (Greedy Heaviest Observed Subtree) algorithm. Comparing to about 10 transactions per second, ethash is able to make over 300 transactions per second. Through the performance enhancement of AMIS Blockchain, the end user is able to receive transaction notification within one second. With OwlChain, manufacturers can focus on what they do best, manufacturing, and OwlTing will take care of the technology details. Everyone can utilize and monitor all information openly and transparently. +MORE
