The Future Of The Retail Supply ChainThe Future Of The Retail Supply Chain

The retail supply chain has gone global, and now it is going mobile with new technologies to benefit the supply chain from end-to-end.

Welcome to the 2013 Retail Supply Chain Special Report, where we take a look at significant factors affecting the retail supply chain. Last year the Retail Supply Chain Special Report focused on RFID and multichannel fulfillment, and you can access that report at ismretail.com/go/SCreport.

This year we are featuring research and commentary from the Retail Value Chain Federation (RVCF, formerly VCF) and Retail Systems Research (RSR), both industry leaders when it comes to the retail supply chain.


Tech Spending 2013: Mobile Makes Its MarkTech Spending 2013: Mobile Makes Its Mark

From assortment planning to returns management and all points between, mobile devices are fast becoming the retailer's indispensable multi-tool.

Yes, mobile computing is a recurring theme in findings from this year's retail tech spending report. This, however, is not another report about mobility. Rather, it's a report on the technologies and operations solutions in which retailers will invest in 2013, with some retrospective commentary on the 2012 events that are driving these investment decisions. It just so happens that for the first time since we began our annual tech spending preview in 2009, mobile devices and mobile application access are playing a profound and cross-disciplinary role in how retail technology and solution budgets are being shaped. We'll highlight that role as we explore the findings of our annual retail technology spending survey here.
