What is retail business intelligence?
In a post covid world where ecommerce penetration has accelerated even further a major chunk of businesses still remain undigitized or partially digitized. Digitization sounds cool but in the world where we have started talking about metaverses and digital currencies, not digizing your business could probably no business at all. So is it just about productivity? Not really. Digitization has tangible and intangible benefits but intangible benefits in most cases out-value the tangible benefits.
Consider the following example: I travel to a new country but end up looking for a haircut salon. My normal reaction would be to google for places near me and call up to book. But there are many factors which could break the chain of events. Having a digital presence merely cannot guarantee a conversion. What is required is “call to action” which will convert a casual browsing to an actual sale. But this not the run of the mill ecommerce. There are other aspects which require consideration. A few examples of how a “deep digitization” could help you solve multiple problems as a business:
- Discovery and recommendations
- Human resource efficiency
- Capacity Planning
- Inventory Planning

Unlocking Growth Potential: The Role of Digitization in Scaling Offline Businesses
In today’s post-pandemic world, where e-commerce has experienced significant growth, many offline businesses still struggle to scale due to their limited or partial digitization. While the concept of digitization may sound trendy, it has become crucial for businesses to survive and thrive in an era where we discuss metaverses and digital currencies. However, the benefits of digitization extend beyond productivity, with intangible advantages often outweighing the tangible ones. This article explores the reasons why many offline businesses struggle to scale and highlights the transformative power of deep digitization.
The Limitations of Offline Businesses
Consider a scenario where I am traveling in a new country and in need of a haircut. Naturally, my instinct would be to search for nearby salons online and make a booking. However, there are various factors that can disrupt this customer journey. Having a digital presence alone does not guarantee conversions. What is needed is a clear “call to action” that converts casual browsing into an actual sale. Deep digitization encompasses various aspects that require consideration for businesses to excel. Let’s explore some examples of how deep digitization can solve multiple business challenges:
1. Discovery and Recommendations: Utilizing data and algorithms to provide personalized recommendations and enhance the customer’s discovery experience.
2. Booking and Scheduling: Offering convenient online booking options and efficient scheduling systems to minimize waiting times and improve customer satisfaction.
3. Payments and Fulfillment: Streamlining payment processes and ensuring smooth order fulfillment, creating a seamless customer experience.
4. Human Resource Efficiency: Optimizing resource allocation and scheduling to improve operational efficiency and maximize productivity.
5. Capacity Planning and Inventory Management: Utilizing data analytics to accurately forecast demand, optimize resource allocation, and prevent overstocking or stockouts.
6. Automation: Implementing automation technologies to streamline repetitive tasks, reduce human error, and enhance overall efficiency.
7. Feedback and Customer Engagement: Leveraging digital platforms to collect customer feedback, analyze trends, and engage with customers to build loyalty and improve offerings.
