In fact, according to one report, as much as 65% of the value of a company’s products or services is derived from its suppliers1 – and its supply chain. Orders need to be fulfilled. Inventory needs to be managed. Customer expectations need to be met. And it all needs to be done efficiently and affordably.

In short, your supply chain impacts every part of your business from the sales cycle to ultimate profitability. But too often, omnichannel commerce relies on disparate processes, sources, and systems to track and manage this critical part of the business.

Here are three ways a unified commerce solution will give your business the competitive advantage it needs:[/cs_text][/cs_column][/cs_row][/cs_section][cs_section bg_color=”hsl(0, 0%, 40%)” parallax=”false” style=”margin: 0px;padding: 10px 0px 45px;”][cs_row inner_container=”true” marginless_columns=”false” style=”margin: 0px auto;padding: 0px;”][cs_column fade=”false” fade_animation=”in” fade_animation_offset=”45px” fade_duration=”750″ type=”1/1″ style=”padding: 0px;”][x_custom_headline level=”h3″ looks_like=”h3″ accent=”false” class=”cs-ta-center” style=”color: hsl(0, 0%, 100%);”]It gets all your data in one place[/x_custom_headline][/cs_column][/cs_row][/cs_section][cs_section parallax=”false” class=”cs-ta-center” style=”margin: 0px;padding: 30px 0px 0px;”][cs_row inner_container=”true” marginless_columns=”false” style=”margin: 0px auto;padding: 0px;”][cs_column fade=”false” fade_animation=”in” fade_animation_offset=”45px” fade_duration=”750″ type=”1/3″ style=”padding: 0px;”] [/cs_column][cs_column fade=”false” fade_animation=”in” fade_animation_offset=”45px” fade_duration=”750″ type=”1/3″ style=”padding: 0px;”][x_image type=”none” src=”https://www.hotwax.co/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/HWC-Blog-STRESS-SUPPLY-Analytics.png” alt=” A unified commerce solution gets all your data in one place.” link=”false” href=”#” title=”” target=”” info=”none” info_place=”top” info_trigger=”hover” info_content=””][/cs_column][cs_column fade=”false” fade_animation=”in” fade_animation_offset=”45px” fade_duration=”750″ type=”1/3″ style=”padding: 0px;”] [/cs_column][/cs_row][/cs_section][cs_section parallax=”false” style=”margin: 0px;padding: 0px 0px 45px;”][cs_row inner_container=”true” marginless_columns=”false” style=”margin: 0px auto;padding: 0px;”][cs_column fade=”false” fade_animation=”in” fade_animation_offset=”45px” fade_duration=”750″ type=”1/1″ style=”padding: 0px;”][cs_text]A survey of more than 400 supply chain leaders found that a lack of visibility and transparency is the greatest hurdle in achieving the supply chain organization’s objectives.2 The first step to overcoming challenge?

You just need a better way to meet their expectations. Today’s consumers are sophisticated and tech-savvy — they assume your business runs on the same connected systems they see in the technology they use in their everyday lives.

In fact, 68% expect delivery of their online purchase within three days and 55% of consumers will switch retailers if their preferred method of fulfillment isn’t available.3 But too often, supply chains rely on inefficient processes and outdated legacy systems, making it difficult to gain the quick insight you need to ensure speedy fulfillment and maximize the profitability of your supply chain. A unified order management system can help you better predict and mitigate the disruptions and risks that threaten your competitive advantage.

Today’s commerce businesses require a unified platform that understands an omnichannel retail sales model. From campaign performance to order fulfillment, you need to know what’s happening, right as it’s happening.

HotWax Commerce helps you bring together dozens of channels, hundreds of suppliers, and thousands of orders a day into a single platform to unify and ignite your entire business. Let’s talk about what it can do for your business.
