The exponential growth of omnichannel shopping and ever-burgeoning demand for faster merchandise deliveries is redefining the supply chain’s distribution of consumer products goods. A seminal shift in how shoppers increasingly buy via multiple touch points — online from desktop computers, mobile devices and in-store — has created the need for the “smarter” warehouse to serve today’s connected consumer. As retailers look to merge their brick-and-mortar and online operations to cut costs and boost efficiency, warehouse management systems must keep pace.
For this report, Zebra Technologies analyzed the state of the warehousing marketplace among firms in the US and Canada with at least $15 million in annual revenues. The online survey asked IT and operations personnel in the manufacturing, retail, transportation and wholesale market segments to share their insights and business plans over the next five years, in light of a rapidly changing industry.

The one thing these powerful brands have in common? Data. The growth of data has brought us to the tipping point between brand and customer. Before the digital age, the biggest and best brands had just that – a brand, which THEY controlled. Now, a brand is powerful because of the data it collects and how it uses it to serve its customers. The value of data is only going to increase as we move from a handful of brands owning first-party data to a greater democratization of information. As a result, consumers will have much more control over their personal data and more companies will be able to generate their own first-party data. Once again, it’s time to look ahead to identify the trends and technologies that are most likely to survive the hype cycle and become the must-haves of the near future.

Good supply chain management is essential to your operational efficiency, customer centricity, compliance, carbon footprint, and ultimately, your overall success. If handled correctly, your supply chain should improve customer service—along with the reputation of your brand—and boost your bottom line. But, as with many areas of business, the rules of the game are changing.
What’s changing? Well, everything. New regulations, increased buyer expectations, shorter product lifecycles, fluctuations in demand, new market entrants, more ethical supplier management, poor visibility of globalized supply chains—all these things, and more, are testing the limits of the traditional supply chain model. The simple truth is that the way things used to be done, and the solutions that enabled it, are no longer up to the job.
Today, organizations need levels of flexibility, integration, and visibility that are beyond what those systems were designed to deliver.
