AS the COVID-19 pandemic continues to spread, retailers have stepped up their efforts when it comes to providing consumers with essential goods and to protect the health and well-being of communities. There have been significant impacts to consumer behavior, product demand, and retail store, factory, and logistics services availability.


Customers from all demographics have shifted to digital and delivery, ushering in a new normal for retail that may become permanent. This has created an environment ripe for innovation, with a need to realign supply chains.


The ability to adapt responsively to product, workforce, partner, and operations needs will separate the winners and losers during the COVID-19 crisis. Some of the technology areas that will be in high demand are:

  • Supply chain collaboration and automation
  • Cloud-based hiring and workforce enablement
  • Contactless experiences and the Amazon effect on how products are purchased.


While the crisis task force acts short-term, the management team should think ahead to leverage potential opportunities and prepare for tomorrow. Act quickly, be ready! Let’s discuss together.
