Transformation with omnichannel Technology
The channel ecosystem model, aka the holistic channel model, is rapidly emerging as the new gold standard in indirect go-to-market strategies. Beyond traditional reseller and distributor partners, brand leaders must now adeptly navigate an expanded partner network, including:
- Suppliers of complementary products and services
Transformation begins with reimagining your technology stack. Your brand’s omnichannel technology needs to enable streamlined, seamless, cross-functional, and cross-enterprise management. To truly excel, brands must meticulously select and implement the right channel management technology to effectively connect and collaborate with their diverse partners.
Overcoming the challenges of best-of-breed software
Best-of-breed software offers diverse omnichannel options but struggles with handling substantial data volumes. To select the right omnichannel tech, consider challenges and criteria. Forrester’s Channel Software Tech Stack (See chart) showcases 187 vendors but urges alignment with holistic channel needs. Key factors to consider include:
- Securing a robust partner network
- Integrating applications seamlessly
- Crafting a cohesive partner digital experience
- Ensuring robust Artificial Intelligence AI solutions
