    In an increasingly digital market, consumers can access an inexhaustible supply from a multitude of retailers in just a few clicks. In this highly competitive environment, the (cross-channel) customer journey increasingly becomes the factor determining the success or failure of a retailer. Customer demands are rising rapidly. The issue is not just whether the digital functions and channel-linking services considered relevant from the shopper point of view are offered, but also what kind of quality the shopper experiences when using them. Only those who can successfully turn the shoppers’ search and buying process in every channel and across channels into a seamless and excellent experience will be able to prevail in the digital market environment. 

    The OMNICHANNEL EXPERIENCE INDEX 2018 delivers a comprehensive picture of the fashion industry’s current development status and forms the basis for a company-specific benchmark analysis for concept creation and ongoing monitoring. This White Paper gives you a taste of some of the elements of the customer journey, presented in the form of a summary index of all analysed companies. If you are interested in an individual benchmark comparison of your company against selected competitors in your home market or market participants in the US, please do not hesitate to contact us.
