With new innovations and blurring lines between digital and physical come new challenges. Electronics manufacturers need to transform their supply chains while progressing towards even more sustainable targets while preparing for omnichannel operations
E-commerce in the electronics industry
Innovation is at the heart of the electronics industry which is rethinking its value chain and product management at every touchpoint in order to streamline the whole process and maximize the customer experience.
As the lines between digital and physical world blur, the same applies for commerce: customer journeys now merge online and in-store. Omnichannel and multichannel solutions are rising among electronics assembly manufacturers which invest in fully integrated end-to-end solutions. According to selling strategy and business model, supply cycle complexity is growing.
Consumer electronics e-commerce is mobile-driven, social media is getting more transactional and the market is thriving on trust, influence and personalization. Not only consumer electronics, but also industrial electronics are taking the advantage of e-commerce, which offers visibility on the market and enables supply chain optimization and counterfeit prevention.
