CART Weekly Report 5/2/19

CART, Advancing Retail

AMAZON’S PROFIT MORE THAN DOUBLES ON 17% RISE IN SALES | Wall Street Journal Gary’s Take: Some readers will remember in the 1980s when then President Reagan harnessed the powerful US economy to burgeoning military innovation, triggering an arms race that eventually bankrupted the Soviet Union and ended the Cold War. This strategy became known as the Reagan Doctrine. Well today we have the Amazon Doctrine. Jeff Bezos has linked his company’s massive financial resources to tech innovation in a bid to completely disrupt many sectors of retail. Amazon’s just released record profits, linked with investing in speeding delivery to 1 day for Prime members, is the Amazon Doctrine in action. While other companies have tried to base strategy on tech what is different now is the point in time we are at: We are at the inflection point on the exponential growth curve of technology and Amazon is opening up a growing gap with competitors. Speeding up delivery is a ‘prime’ example. WILL SHOPPABLE ADS HELP WALMART’S VUDU COMPETE WITH AMAZON AND NETFLIX | Retail Wire Sterling’s Take: Free content will most always be a draw to some degree. And if the shoppable content is easy to use and meaningful to users, it will only add to it. Sounds like many brands have already bought in … but Walmart has some catching up to do with regards to original programming. Amazon and Netflix are so far ahead in creating really great (sometimes viral) content — it remains to be seen if Walmart can carve out a viable niche with “basic-cable” content. AI-POWERED, VOICE-CAPABLE CHATBOT HELPS SHOPPERS MAKE THE RIGHT CHOICE IN STORES | RetailWire Sterling’s Take: To me it’s a question of where they can add meaningful value, and I think BevMo! has found a use case here with SmartAisle. It’s something that (especially at this stage) isn’t appropriate for all retail verticals or chains, but I can definitely see them complementing more sales associates in the not too distant future. WHAT’S REALLY DRIVING DISRUPTION? (HINT: IT’S NOT TECHNOLOGY) | RetailWire Sterling’s Take: 100% — innovation + disruption has very little to do with technology and everything to do with our thinking (decoupling or otherwise). It’s why Steve Jobs could take an invention from Xerox 20 years prior and create the personal computer industry. Or why RC vehicles were my favorite as a kid, but today we call them drones and they’re doing everything from delivery to military duty. Technology is the enabler and sometimes the result — not the disruptor in and of themselves. The biggest thing missing amongst retailers and brands today is an innovation culture, a group of people that can cultivate new ideas and perspectives beyond the status quo — and execute on them. Labs, innovation groups, etc. can help, but they tend to be siloed. What we can do is bring that kind of “startup” thinking, self starting and exponential aims into the entire organization. Is it confronting? Maybe … Does it work? Definitely. KOHL’S GOES ALL IN ON AMAZON RETURNS | RetailWire Sterling’s Take: My mom used to have a saying for this — “it’s cheaper to milk a cow than buy one.” That is, if everything Amazon is looking for from Kohl’s comes at a low cost, why do they need to move forward with anything else? I’m sure Kohl’s is keeping their fingers crossed for a deeper relationship, but Amazon will only drive from the data, numbers and performance that makes sense.

The Innovation Imperative: Register for the CART Retail Innovation Pitch Event

Center for Advancing Retail and Technology, CART

The supermarket industry is increasingly driven by innovation - one has to look no further than Amazon’s impact as a catalyst to the industry moving online, new services, and capabilities. Self-shopping, in-home and in-car delivery, voice-based commerce, and more are all areas of innovation that are transforming the industry. One of the major challenges traditional retailers of any size have is simply trying to be aware of what new innovation is coming into the industry. To put this in perspective: Walmart recently created a new subsidiary called Store No. 8 to focus on discovering and investing in new key technologies like AI and automation. The Store No. 8 team reviews around 750 new solutions each year. The CART team is currently reviewing an estimated 1,200 new solutions each year - about 100 per month. That’s the pace tech-fueled innovation is moving at and every day that goes on the innovation gap is growing larger. One way CART is helping traditional retailers learn about powerful new capabilities is through the twice a year Pitch Event. This year we’re doing something new, opening up the pitch event as a live webcast to members of the industry to participate. Held this year in partnership with Winsight Grocery Business and sponsored by dunnhumby, the CART Retail Innovation Pitch Event will be held Tuesday, May 15, at 2pm Eastern.  CART has sorted through the hundreds of applicants to the pitch event to focus in on a handful of compelling and powerful new capabilities for retailers. This is a great way for all members of the industry - retailers, wholesalers, and brand manufacturers - to learn about new capabilities coming into the industry and have an opportunity to hear directly from these innovators as they pitch their solutions. Supermarket retailers now find themselves on a new playing field, competing with some of the world’s leading technology companies and having to respond to fast consumer adoption of new technologies. The CART Retail Innovation Pitch Webcast is the way to efficiently gain insight to what’s coming. We look forward to having you join us for this special industry event! +MORE

Retail Innovation Report: 2016 Trends, Insights & Analysis

CART

2016 is the year that retail hit an inflection point, technology fueled innovation exploding across the industry, transforming and disrupting every step of the supply chain. And for those executives who are shell-shocked at the pace of change, it is only going to increase. There are no time-outs. Faster and cheaper computer processing is powering growing use of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning. These capabilities in turn feeding on massive big data, and powerful new capabilities delivered to even the smallest merchants via the cloud. Technology is becoming democratized, sophisticated solutions no longer the sole province of the largest companies. Indeed, we are entering a period where smaller companies can leverage their ability to move fast, unencumbered by large organizations and legacy infrastructure. Technology is fundamental to retail success and piloting new innovations is fast becoming a required discipline for retailers, wholesalers, and brand manufacturers. Industry innovation is now being driven by consumer adoption of new technologies, an uncomfortable place for many retail executives as they grapple with power shifting to the end consumer/ +MORE

Retail Innovation Report: Q3 2016 Trends, Insights & Analysis

CART

The future is coming into focus as the economics and operational benefits of emerging technology become more clear. What is also clear is just how fast technology-fueled innovation is moving and the grand visions that Amazon, Google, and others have for marketplace transformation. As the digital and physical worlds of retail meld, industry executives in even staid sectors like supermarket retailing increasingly realize that they ignore innovation at their own peril. The Q3 2016 emerging technologies, drones and 3D printing, offer no better example of the industry transformation we are on the cusp of. Retail industry executives must keep in mind that we have entered a time of exponential technology growth and innovation may appear to move slowly but then quickly hit a tipping point and explode across the market. Consider that Amazon has been in business twenty years but has tripled in size in just the past five years. Or Uber quickly becoming a multi-billion dollar company in less than five years.  +MORE
