The study defines omnichannel as the ability to provide a seamless shopping experience across multiple platforms, including online and in-store, a capability that’s undoubtedly become a part of today’s retail experience. Whether it’s locating an item online and buying it in-store, modifying or completing an order from any location or making a cross-channel return, customers expect the companies they buy from to easily execute these and other scenarios.
For more than a century, Dewhirst has played a key role in the evolution of clothing retail and supplied diverse brands and retailers with quality garments. Although the company had no problem keeping pace with the evolution of retail and fashion trends, manual warehousing and distribution processes inhibited the company’s ability to keep up with a rapidly scaling customer base. Manual data entry into the company’s enterprise software system, for example, limited visibility into Dewhirst’s dispatch process and complex customer requirements. Rather than continuing to operate with this cumbersome workflow, Dewhirst needed a solution that could mobilize key supply chain processes while also scaling to meet growing company and customer needs.

Properly establishing the user experience of the mobile app can help to ensure users’ needs are met while getting the best use—and intended benefit—out of the investment. A successful enterprise mobile app is one with a robust user experience that’s built around these considerations. Below, we’ll uncover some real examples of what it looks like to move through the discovery process to develop the most useful mobile app for the enterprise.
Mobile has become ubiquitous—and it’s no wonder, given that worldwide smartphone users were expected to total 1.75 billion in 2014 (a number that, by the way, will only continue to rise). When looking beyond mobile device usage, however, mobility-driven business imperatives like a comprehensive strategy aren’t catching on quite as fast. One of the stumbling blocks? Understanding the need to not just introduce mobile devices to your workforce, but also mobilize your key business processes so that you can tap into (no pun intended) accessibility, efficiency and robust functionality regardless of user role or location.
Here’s a look at a couple of our more recent success story additions. Both of these mobility implementations also highlight a member of our global partner network, a powerful collaboration that extends our expertise in a variety of industries and countries. You’ve heard the old saying, “there’s strength in numbers.” Our partner network is an ideal example of that adage!

The customer benefit is clear: the convenience of shopping from home and the instant gratification of picking up just what you wanted from a nearby store, rather than hunting around—wasting time and energy—for the right product in the right size, color, etc. And the business benefit? Happy customers are good for business—and in the digital economy, a happy customer is one whose shopping experience has been transparent, flexible and most of all, convenient.
