The Future of Retail is Here: Why Retailers Should Switch to ETP’s Unified Commerce Platform

Imagine this: a customer meticulously curates a cart full of clothes online, only to vanish before checkout. You’ve seen it a hundred times—the dreaded abandoned cart.

A recent study by the Baymard Institute found that a whopping 70.19% of online shopping carts are abandoned before purchase. This is just one symptom of the challenges plaguing modern retail. Fierce competition, ever-evolving customer expectations, and the ever-present threat of online giants all contribute to a retail landscape that can feel like a rollercoaster ride. But all is not lost, fellow retailers!

Here’s where the ETP’s Unified Commerce comes to your rescue.

In this blog series, we’ll be exploring how ETP’s powerful cloud-native platform, the Unified Commerce Platform, brings the best of retail and e-commerce functionality to the user in one, easy-to-use and beautiful interface, helping create an amazing experience for consumers. And why retailers should switch to ETP’s Unified Commerce.

But first, let’s dive briefly into whether ETP’s unified commerce platform has the potential to revolutionize retail.

ETP’s Unified Commerce Platform: A Retail Game Changer

ETP Unified Commerce Retail Software is an enterprise-class, scalable, and secure cloud-native, AI-powered SAAS platform. Built using MACH architecture, it’s easy to use, and has a beautiful interface that stores all information in one database, enabling retail merchants and managers to have all the information and tools at their fingertips to serve customers across channels.

One of the key differences between unified commerce solutions and omnichannel retail solutions is that unified commerce unifies, orchestrates, and provides seamless experiences across channels. Whereas, the main goal of omni-channel retail is to give customers an overall experience that gives them an accurate view of all products across all platforms.

In other words, unified commerce is a strategy that centralizes the data you’ve collected about customers and products on a single platform. These platforms can interconnect systems of e-commerce, mobile commerce, customer relationship management, order management systems, omnichannel order fulfilment, analytics, and more to help provide insights into how to improve the customer experience. 

What is the goal, you ask? The goal of unified commerce is to promote personalized shopping experiences that meet consumer expectations. It is necessary to align all the sales channels to offer the same information that the customer expects, ensure there is a constant flow of information being shared, and reduce data silos on a given channel. 

How would retailers benefit from the Unified Commerce Retail Platform?

  • Real-time inventory visibility: Always know what’s in stock, online and in-store, for a smooth shopping experience.
  • Enhanced point-of-sale systems: Offer faster checkouts, easier delivery options, and gather valuable customer data – all at once.
  • Automatic payments and reduced integration hassles: Simplify the checkout process with effortless integrations and automatic payments.

This unified approach saves time, improves customer satisfaction, and gives you a clearer view of your entire retail business.
