Karen Dyke (CEO of RMS) took to the Connected Retail Stage at EuroCIS 24 and shared how Germany’s largest discount fashion and home goods retailer implemented Metro in over 4,400 stores and 14 countries to improve the communication to their employees, streamlining the on-site management of their stores, and minimising the administrative burden to speed up their business processes.

Retailers who want to succeed in an increasingly competitive environment can’t avoid digitalisation. By embracing digitalisation and interacting with customers and employees in new ways, retailers can pave the way to a competitive and more sustainable future. Paper, phone calls, and emails take up a lot of time, are prone to errors, and have become obsolete in the digital world.

Digitalisation and automation save time and costs along the entire internal and external service chain and significantly increase efficiency. Improved employee communication and a structured way of working also significantly increase employee satisfaction.
