Overview

Hitachi Solutions empowers retailers across every segment from luxury retail to restaurants, helping them drive transformation through the power of technology.

The internet of things (IoT), Big Data and predictive analytics are rapidly transforming the way retailers do business. Your retail business can no longer deliver “push based” mass merchandising that treats all customers the same. Though operational considerations such as supply chain efficiency and inventory turn remain imperative to profitability, to thrive in the long term, your retail organization must adapt to the reality of connected consumers and their changing demands. The new retail requires a deep understanding of each consumer, leading to personal experiences and offers that drive relevance and differentiation, leading to store visits, online shopping, larger basket size, and higher conversion.

To meet consumer demands and grow profits, retailers must confront several challenges including:

  • Moving away from disparate systems to a common platform
  • Dealing with the “Amazon effect”
  • Leveraging customer data to reorganize merchandising and marketing

By enabling you with the latest Microsoft technology crafted specifically for the retail market, Hitachi Solutions offers the industry specific products and expertise your retail store needs to stay competitive in the digital age.

Our challenge was to bring a wide variety of flowers to our clients from a variety of sources. We were able to achieve this with the help of Hitachi Solutions. We are now able to land with our customers faster than our competition can.
- Deba Behera, Director - IT
We had no such thing as cross-company collaboration, but we were approaching a point where we couldn’t keep pace with business demands. We wanted to modernize and create a globally connected environment where we could quickly adapt and respond to the needs of our rapidly expanding retailer, franchisee, and customer base.
- Phillip R. Kennedy, Director of Information Technology at PANDORA
When we looked at what was available in the market, Microsoft Dynamics AX was the solution that met the majority of our needs right out of the box. It met about 75 to 80 per cent of our requirements right away.
