Webinar: Making the leap from ‘bricks’ to ‘clicks’ – essential lessons to survive in a post-pandemic omnichannel marketplace

This upcoming webinar hosted by Microlistics and SCLAA will explore the capabilities required for success in the post-pandemic omnichannel world.

COVID-19 has upended the retail sector, accelerating the shift to e-commerce beyond the most bullish of pre-pandemic expectations.

Success in this changing environment requires the careful alignment of supply chain capability with customer demands.

Many big brands, traditional bricks and mortar retailers and 3PLs are being forced to make the leap into omnichannel sales and fulfilment.

The transformation of supply chains to accommodate this, which might once have been carefully undertaken over years, are suddenly necessary to achieve in months or even weeks.

Join Archie Garcia from Microlistics and Jon Northorpe of T Group as, with the help of real-world examples, they explore:

  • The essential capabilities required for success in an ever-changing omnichannel world
  • How to transform your operations quickly while minimising risks and avoiding pitfalls
  • How to achieve rapid ROI from your supply chain investment without compromising your long-term strategy or future improvements

Date and time

Tuesday, 13 October 2020, 12noon to 1.00pm (AEST)
