Life in the post-COVID-19 world: the new normal for brands and retailers

Since the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic, mandatory lockdowns across China, Europe and the Americas have deeply transformed consumer buying habits. From the comfort and safety of their keyboards and handsets, overwhelming numbers of shoppers opted for delivery of consumer goods to their doorstep.

In a more digitally focused world, brands and manufacturers have no other choice than to re-connect with their consumers. E-commerce capabilities and digitally driven fulfillment infrastructure will continue to be critical to business continuity in the current environment of uncertainty. Scaling up digital capabilities will remain a priority across the entire value chain in order to meet market demand faster and prevent excess inventory.

Why digital infrastructure matters more than ever

Spurred to action in the face of the worldwide health emergency, the fashion ecosystem will continue to metamorphose. The public health crisis has already accelerated the pace of digital transformation, with many companies revising their business strategy to focus on digital and social channels.

Today, a high degree of market uncertainty is driving a greater sense of urgency in marketing content management. Managing multiple collections and complex assortments is laborious and time-consuming. That’s why it is vital for marketing and e-commerce teams to remain informed of collection development and availability at all times and ensure an efficient go-to-market process.
