Going forward the three companies will be focusing on creating a fully integrated omnichannel solution for trading companies which connects all of their sales channels with no limits.
Shopping via all channels: Customers nowadays want a seamless shopping experience, whether they are buying online via an app, on their computer or in person in branch. The goal for many retailers is therefore to connect their over-the-counter and digital sales channels in such a way that they perfectly complement one another. “The key to creating a limitless customer journey is to have an integrated omnichannel software that covers all the processes of the supply chain, from order management and logistics through to distribution. This is what all 230 employees of the new group will be collectively working on going forwards,” says Vanjo Wandscher, CEO of Futura Retail Solutions AG. In addition, the three companies will remain active in their segments and respective markets and continue to expand their offerings.
