Why InspireXT

Your customers want more, Can you deliver?

Your customers’ expectations are changing.

Gone are the days of limited access to information, traditional buying behaviors and cycles, and buyers willing to wait weeks for their orders.

Consumers are living in the age of an abundance of information. Product research is a mere click away, leading to informed customers who know exactly what they want and when they want it.

With the rise of the e-commerce era, online shopping has become the norm. So has expectations for faster fulfillment, real-time tracking, and self-serve capabilities. Your customers want to be able to interact with their orders, change their delivery dates, and own the process in ways that were unimaginable 10 or even 5 years ago.

For those choosing to shop at a brick-and-mortar store, their journey usually starts online, and should seamlessly transition offline. These retail trends have become relevant
references in business-to-business commerce, but few companies are able to offer such experiences.

What is more, personalization is no longer a perk, it’s an expectation, regardless of the channels you engage your customers.

Customer expectations

Change or be

As the supply chain continues to change at a rapid pace, standing still is no longer an option.

Companies that can’t keep up with evolving customer demand can’t — and won’t — survive.

The simple truth is that your competitors are currently going through profound digital transformations to meet their consumer’s needs. If you’re not constantly innovating, you’ll get left behind.

The road to increased growth is lined with efficient business processes

You need to be agile, but you can’t meet rapidly changing customer expectations with siled, rigid, inefficient systems. Here’s why:

Your business systems are outdated or not designed to work together

Older systems likely don’t have automation capabilities and real-time data sharing. This means employees are spending too much time on low-level manual tasks when they could be focused on increasing the customer experience. It also means you’re paying more for labor costs, which is expensive and inefficient.

Your employees don’t have easy access to key supply chain data

Without end-to-end visibility into your supply chain, your team can’t make informed decisions and properly manage inventory, orders, and shipments. This puts your company at risk of over-ordering inventory or running out of product.

Your business processes are not agile enough in adopting market changes quickly

If customer demand changes tomorrow, would you be able to deliver? Without a connected system that enables easy information sharing, the answer is probably not.

Your analytics do not drive insights and lack decision capabilities

The reality is, if demand did change, you likely wouldn’t hear about it until too late. Without a sustainable analytics system, you’re unable to predict what products your consumers will want next year, next quarter, or even next month.

You are facing compliance risks, but technology landscape is unforgiving

While this is especially worrying for industries with changing compliance expectations, all markets benefit from clear legal and compliance systems. Modern cloud-based platforms allow companies to seamlessly track and meet compliance needs.
