The Challenge of Fulfillment
Integrated multichannel retailing will inevitably become the norm. For retailers, the key to multichannel success lies in understanding the factors that drive

At the end of the thirty days (or more, depending on the terms of payment), the retailer has a payable due to the supplier, regardless of how many units are left on the shelves.

Dassault’s Consumer Experience Management, Virtually Yours
Product lifecycle management (PLM) for retail and consumer packaged goods (CPG) is usually seen as a lighter version of more complex systems used by

shelves  to move a few shelves closer to the entry or the cash register.

It’s About Process (or The Ability to Be Responsive)
Because business processes are often communicated in an ad hoc and unregulated manner, it can be difficult to standardize processes across organizations, particularly larger ones.
