2022 Omnichannel Report
Omnichannel remains the key to digital growth.
On a 2022 earnings call, Walmart Inc. CEO Doug McMillon described how omnichannel services have changed its business: “Our stores have become hybrid. They’re both stores and fulfillment centers,” he said.
Stores now serve as shopping destinations and fulfillment centers for items ordered on the web. From there, staffers prepare orders for shipping and pickup—in-store or curbside. This model offers consumers flexible options and, by extension, gives retailers new ways to win customers using web technology.
Our 2022 Omnichannel Report delivers the industry’s most thorough analysis of omnichannel retailing today, broken out into 3 digestible sections:
- Omnichannel Trends explores data on the 136 retail chains featured in Digital Commerce 360’s Top 500 online retailer rankings
- Shopper Speaks draws on consumer survey data to study the omnichannel shopping habits of U.S. online shoppers
- New Developments reveals the way brick-and-mortar retailers are experimenting with new ways to fulfill online orders
The role of stores—and their relationship with ecommerce—are becoming indistinguishable and the competition has never been fiercer. Digital Commerce 360’s research and data will tell you what customers value most and, more importantly, how to deliver an exceptional omnichannel experience.
