Virtual reality (VR) is something we’ve been hearing a lot about recently, but did you know your shopping experience could be influenced by this in the not too distant future? Or perhaps it already has?

In this infographic, we’ll explore how virtual reality is changing online shopping (and subsequently the ecommerce fulfillment operations behind the scenes) by creating a virtual shopping experience (v-commerce) many are finding hard to forget. We’ll look at the different ways VR can be used, including the experience it creates and the implementation of another innovative feature – augmented reality (AR).

We’ll also delve into what effect this could be having on brick-and-mortar stores, and how retailers can bridge the gap between physical and online stores. This is important because customers are enjoying VR and all it has to offer, which means stores are having to find ways to manage customer expectations while protecting themselves from this latest technological advancement.

And finally, we’ll finish with some interesting examples of how retailers are using VR to create a unique, and unforgettable, shopping experience. Key examples include Swedish furniture manufacturer, IKEA; car manufacturer, Audi; online marketplace, eBay; and the e-commerce platform, Shopify.

 

Virtual Reality

 

Companies that leverage the latest technologies such as Virtual Reality (VR), Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the Internet of Things (IoT) are positioned to create an enhanced Customer experience.  And this competitively differentiated Customer experience provides the opportunity for significant growth and market share gains.

At a minimum the application of these technologies reflect a realization that companies can not be stagnant.  They need to continually look for new ways to reinvent themselves not only to support growth but to ensure their very survival!

A few months back, we wrote about Blockchain as an emerging technology and tool for Supply Chain transparency.

It’s a pretty incredible technology that stands to reshape big aspects of the economy in general and Supply Chain in particular – but it’s also pretty difficult for the common person to understand, which doesn’t help matters.

But Blockchain is coming, and it offers the potential to shake up Supply Chain and Logistics like few other technologies coming down the pike.

AI in E-Commerce

 

E-Commerce continues to be the fastest growing channel in any industry worldwide.  And AI is a technology for today and in the future.  A convergence between E-Commerce and AI is a natural fit.

E-Commerce growth requires the deployment of advanced technology in order to provide the scalability necessary to sustain and support that growth.  Artificial Intelligence requires channels that have a need to leverage technological capabilities and are willing to experiment, invest and evolve with the progression of AI.

The Internet of Things (IoT) enables the end to end connectivity of all aspects of our lives in an unprecedented manner.

In the arena of Manufacturing there has always been a reliance on processes, data, sensors, controls, analysis and metrics to allow for monitoring, management and optimization of those Manufacturing processes.  And the ability to leverage historic approaches has varied from company to company and industry to industry.

But now with the advent of IoT, Big Data, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Industry 4.0 the ability to optimize Manufacturing processes through this incredible digital connectivity is about to take a quantum leap forward.

Since the term Industry 4.0 was first coined by the German government in 2011 it has steadily gathered pace and interest from companies across all industries.  This infographic from 2Flow takes you through how much it has grown and how much it is expected to grow in the years to come.

Industry 4.0 is a far cry from what has come before it and data analytics is at the heart of it.  In all supply chains, companies are always looking for ways to make it more efficient and digitization is more often than not the answer – which makes Industry 4.0 the answer.

So what can Industry 4.0 accomplish? It is all about connection and it can connect all areas of your business to improve their efficiency. Use real time data to satisfy customer demands, see weaknesses that exist in equipment with data from thousands of sensors and data points, ensure timely replacement of parts and avoid production downtime. This is just some of what Industry 4.0 can accomplish.

Like with anything, there are many challenges to successfully implementing all that Industry 4.0 has to offer. The challenges are vast but a lack of digital culture and training is holding back 50% of companies from incorporating Industry 4.0 technologies. Just because a company is presented with evidences how Industry 4.0 can improve them, it doesn’t mean they’re going to make the change overnight.

This is why it’s so important to map out your strategy over the next five years to at least achieve some progress. Have a look at your company and get some clarity on your own digital maturity and set clear goals.

Even if you’re ready, don’t jump in too early as Industry 4.0 projects are of course expensive. A pilot project might be a good idea and if it’s successful it will make it easier to secure the funding required for a larger rollout. Find out more about all things industry 4.0 in the infographic.
