Our retail industry solutions

The Hitachi Solutions project manager — and the whole team — were awesome. Anything that came up, we worked as one team to resolve, which I really appreciated. And, they were there to support us post-go-live, which was very important… If I had a question or major issue, I could always reach out. They were very responsive and supportive and, to me, that made a huge difference.

How Hitachi Solutions is Helping Retailers

Delivering Personalized Customer Experiences

Retailers face mounting pressure to provide customers with a seamless omnichannel buying experience, all while tailoring that experience to the interest and needs of each individual consumer.  The key to accomplishing this is to leverage data in order to create digital content targeted to specific customer segments across multiple channels. Hitachi Solutions helps retailers modernize their solution architecture in order to offer differentiated experiences, develop more successful marketing campaigns, and gain much-needed visibility across all channels and customers.

Create Differentiated Experiences

Avoiding Disruption with Modern Solutions

In today’s modern retail landscape, companies have the opportunity to compete on a global scale, expanding into new markets and tapping into new customer segments. In order to seize this opportunity, retailers must first replace disparate legacy systems with modern intelligent solutions — solutions that enable them to leverage cutting-edge technology such as data science, machine learning, and analytics. Using these solutions, retailers can access valuable customer insights that enable them to make timely decisions based on buyer behavior, improve supplier relations, optimize inventory levels to support promotions across all channels, and deliver the right merchandise to the right customer at the right time.

Start Modernizing

Innovating to Unlock New Opportunities

In order to increase store revenue and online sales, retailers require an end-to-end view of the customer — something simply not possible with aging and disparate systems. By modernizing systems, utilizing new technologies such as geolocation, eCommerce and point-of-sale platforms, and developing streamlined processes, retailers are primed to leverage real-time customer data, respond to purchase patterns, and explore new ways to attract customers.
