  • 10 steps to prepare your organization for Matrix Commerce

Amid the proliferation of new technologies, business models and economic conditions, a new buyer-centric world has emerged. Consumerization of technologies, manifested in trends such as social networking, mobility, cloud services and Big Data, has raised the expectations of buyers as to the art of the possible. The result - a growing digital divide has emerged between organizations that adopt disruptive technologies and those who fail in creating business transformation.

Matrix commerce describes the processes, technologies and business models emerging at the intersection of omni-channel distribution, payment technologies, demand signals, supply chains, frictionless enablers and Big Data to deliver on a buyer’s expectations. Matrix commerce addresses the emerging complexity of meeting perfect orders in a buyer-centric world. Internal organizational silos of yesteryear must be broken down and re-integrated in order to deliver a seamless buyer experience.

“Sellers must move quickly to a buyer centric design point or face continue failures in interaction, engagement, and loyalty” noted report author, R “Ray” Wang
