Retail operations and delivery are far more complex today than they ever were. Whether it be product sourcing, duties payable, quality processes and legislation, or logistics costs, wastage, shrinkage, mark down, employee rotas and a myriad KPI’s. The simple ‘buy low, sell high’ process has now become quite complex and that’s even before we add the ‘customer’, the multifaceted leveller to the mix.

Empowering Retailers by Unleashing the Power of Data

With the continuous expansion of the retail sector through multi channels such as social media, virtual communities and new data sources, it has become essential to tap into the hearts and minds of customers. This can be done by gaining business insights through data using various means such as creating communities that personalise products and/or bundles that meet specific personal needs, or by contextualising products for customers at the point of purchase. At Mastek, we help make this possible, simplifying retail and empowering businesses by identifying the customer through multiple means of loyalty management, be it digital or physical media. We have over three decades of understanding and experience of delivering complex solutions across multiple channels and devices.
