If you’re planning on attending the NRF Retail’s BIG Show in New York City this January, then you’re probably doing your research on how to make the most of the event — and understandably so. With 700+ exhibitors, making the best use of your time at the world’s largest retail show in the cultural, financial, and media capital of the world can feel like mission impossible. Having exhibited in years past, the team here at Logistyx knows how overwhelming it can be to pick the must-visit booths and events in advance, so we’re here to tell you three reasons why visiting Logistyx at NRF 2020 should be at the top of your list.
1. Business Intelligence Will Be Front and Center at NRF 2020
You don’t need a crystal ball to predict that data analytics and Business Intelligence will be a hot topic in parcel shipping this year, and therefore front and center for all innovative parcel shipping technology vendors at NRF. After all, according to Gartner in the 2019 Market Guide for Multicarrier Parcel Management Solutions (Gartner subscription required) “leading multicarrier parcel solutions vendors are moving past standard execution capability and toward more value-added services. Functionality such as robust business intelligence platforms, front-end commerce/web integration and predictive tools are quickly becoming differentiators in the market…”
Attendees who visit the Logistyx booth at NRF 2020 will leave with a new wealth of knowledge on how Transportation Management Systems (TMS) for parcel shipping can optimize retailers’ strategies and take carrier service selection, delivery event tracking, and freight audit and reporting to the next level. Our product experts will be on hand to demonstrate our newest Business Intelligence features and show you the benefits of connecting your data from carrier selection… to parcel shipping execution… to carrier invoice payment, and then synchronizing it for reporting.
2. Learn More about the Benefits of a Control Tower
Logistyx partner project 44 reported that 74% of consumers surveyed shared when a package isn’t delivered when expected, it negatively impacts their impression of the company. This means retailers need real-time shipment data and package tracking capabilities, so customer service teams can monitor and proactively address problems to deliver exceptional customer service.
Fortunately, you can ditch your multiple carrier system logins and instead invest in a modern TMS for parcel shipping with a Control Tower to efficiently track delivery event movements, automate event exception management, and proactively communicate with customers regarding their parcel’s ETA. In fact, our product experts are looking forward to showing you our new Control Tower dashboards and to telling a few “war stories” about how the Logistyx Control Tower has helped some of the world’s leading retailers reduce late deliveries and delight their customers with the right products, at the right places, at just the right time – every time.
