Transforming Digital Core for Grocery

Disruption creates a once-in-a-generation opportunity for retailers and grocers to evolve to the Renewable Retail Enterprise, by digitally transforming their core and putting data-driven customer insight at the heart of their operations.

Retail and grocers adapted impressively to the turmoil of 2020. Diametrically conflicting pressures of uncertain demand, the shift online, disrupted supply-chains and the cost of fulfilling new online, on-demand and omnichannel buying meant margins were squeezed.

Capgemini’s Retailpath offers a route forward, to build on the advances toward digital buying while enabling operational agility, resilience and innovation and ultimately growing revenue and margins.

It’s the roadmap to the Renewable Retail Enterprise , and below we explain more about the exciting opportunity that creates – and the benefits it delivers, for your shoppers, your staff, your business and the world we all share.

“It’s an incredible time to be in grocery – it’s a unique sector in the way it forms part of and serves a community. Grocery now has the opportunity, by reinventing its core, to play an even bigger role at the heart of the digitally connected community”
