There is much talk across retail and distribution businesses today around the idea of Unified Commerce, but what is it? In short, it is regarded as the next step from omni-channel commerce, giving you one version of the truth and the ability to have all of your channels connected and sharing data with you in real time.

So, why should this matter to you?

The answer is simple… Unified Commerce will enable you to differentiate from the “me too” players, which is essential in today’s highly competitive market, dominated by big brands. Differentiation, as you will know, is critical to the growth and sustainability of any business. With Unified commerce, you can ensure that every customer interaction with your organisation reflects and reinforces your brand values. It will give your customers an exceptional and consistent experience across all channels; it can be your differentiator and ultimately help you to achieve your growth goals.

On Thursday 13th June Sir Philip Green spoke on UK national radio claiming he has saved his Arcadia retail empire from collapse. Announcing 50 stores in UK highstreets will close, with over 1000 job losses, not good news but the potential to be far worse. Meanwhile, Green has received media backlash for his lack of business attention whilst occupied with living on a luxury yacht in Monaco. Whatever role Green played in getting to the current situation is unimportant, the crucial fact is that his large retail group is behind the digital curve.
It has been a month since the extremely bullish £750m+ tie-up between M&S and Ocado was confirmed in the press. Admittedly, the talks between “Mango” and “Apricot” (the charming respective code names) were never the grocery sector’s greatest secret, with speculation being ever present over the past few months. Waitrose will exit the Ocado fulfilment offering in September 2020 and M&S will join… in a very well publicised JV capacity. Read below part 2 of my series which talks in detail about some of the most important factors that led to this change. Missed Part 1? Read it here!
