 “Intelligent IT solutions play a vital role in the successful execution of an omni-channel strategy. Of course the infrastructure has to be in place, and tools such as track & trace in real time, proof of delivery, route optimisation, text message/email notification, etc. are all a big help when it comes to enhancing the customer experience, and mobile IT solutions in the warehouse and with drivers improve efficiency and service levels.” says Richard Wilding, professor of Supply Chain Strategy at the Cranfield School of Management.
