In today's B2B market, where the customer has access to volumes of infor¬mation surrounding their purchase decision, there's been a major shift in the selling paradigm-a shift that all but eliminates "selling" from the process. Now Sales and Marketing professionals must insert themselves into the custom¬er's purchasing process at a much earlier stage, helping the customer buy, through an intelligent, dynamic nurturing cycle.

To understand why customers make the purchase choices they do, it may be helpful to look rigorously at all the moments that have an influence on their final actions.
This reasoning is the basis of concepts variously called “purchase funnel,” or the “path to purchase” or “moments of truth” by product marketers. It implies a rather linear progression from general awareness to preference to decision to acquisition of a specific product.
The end game is customer success. It’s what we all want to happen. Along the way we’ll do our best to illuminate:
• How did the customer arrive at the best possible purchase outcome?
• What decision moments can the retailer influence along the way?
• What tools can the retailer use exert these influences?
• What actions can the retailer take to bring them there?
While the store remains the cornerstone of the shopping experience, our survey of more than 26,000 customers across a range of grocery and non-grocery retail categories, reveals that today’s empowered consumers are increasingly comfortable purchasing through multiple retail channels. The much discussed trend of "Showrooming," threatens to fragment hard-earned customer loyalty. Retailers can convert the threat to opportunity by making their customers "sticky" through a seamless omni-channel approach that provides consistency, convenience and a superior shopping experience across every consumer touch point.
In 2013, Bon Ton Stores invested in upgrading IT, continuing to update and expand its eCommerce sites, and launching a new mobile site supporting delivery of promotions and online purchasing. A central aspect of this technology upgrade involved the replacement of an x86 server environment, supporting eCommerce with ten IBM® PowerLinux™ 7R2 servers and IBM PowerVM® running IBM WebSphere® Commerce on SUSE Linux operating systems. This case study highlights of some of the key aspects of this significant migration and its results, including how Bon-Ton IT executives support the business and what they prioritize, why they decided to make this move, what performance and capability resulted, and how it affected full data center costs and business resilience.
Availability, performance, user interface... Nobody cares. The age of the enterprise is here! Customers are now automatically purchasing any product you release, ensuring the longevity of your enterprise.
The objective of this white paper is to review various aspects of retail financial management and to draw important lessons for small and mid-size retailers. The paper addresses a wide range of topics that impact a retailer’s financial success. Many of these are common to retailers of all sizes, but some are specific to mid to small tier businesses and many cautionary notes are given.

If the go-go 1990s, with its fast money and flush credit seeking rapid and steep returns, created the demand for "renaissance" Chief Financial Officers ("CFO"), who could manage (and market) both the strategic and financial operations of the enterprise, the more sobering decade that followed led directly to the creation and subsequent rise of the Chief Procurement Officer ("CPO"), who could reduce costs, build internal relationships, and develop strategic suppliers efficiently and effectively.
In today's highly-competitive markets, more and more procurement and sourcing professionals are looking to streamline processes and drive superior performance. In the quest for higher savings, more spend under management and increased compliance, sourcing executives must turn to their own repository of spend data to effectively identify opportunities for savings and gain a deeper understanding of their corporate spend.
The global recession is taking no prisoners. Neither industry, nor region, nor company-size has provided shelter from its impact. Within the enterprise, few business functions have been unaffected. Yet, as this business downturn continues, the Chief Procurement Officer's ("CPO") agenda and the CEO's agenda have started to converge.
The strategic sourcing group has faced myriad challenges over the last two decades, including a fluctuating economy and increased expectations to bolster the enterprise bottom-line. However, the last few years have brought about a new, complex challenge: continue to drive procurement performance while finding fresh cost savings within other areas of corporate spending.
Spend analysis has gradually become the top process in the procurement executive's toolbox, placing itself in the top tier of functionalities alongside e-sourcing, e-procurement and strategic sourcing solutions.
Spend Matters research has long considered Hackett Group metrics to be the gold standard of P2P benchmarking. As part of the collaboration for the research for this report, Hackett agreed to share with Spend Matters some of the findings from its latest P2P benchmarks.
Spend Matters has long argued that spend visibility and contract management have always been two sides of the same coin. Companies can leverage an integrated spend analysis, contract management and P2P solution set to institute real-time controls to validate a number of possible spend variables.
