Innovation for the entire retail business ecosystem
Competitive pressures in retail are at an all-time high and require exceptional customer experiences at every touchpoint. Many retailers struggle to balance successful digital transformation and modernization efforts with exceeding customer expectations, retaining an engaged workforce, and gaining operational efficiency. But what if you could do it all?
Mendix empowers retailers to accelerate application development with a visual development platform and a Marketplace of out-of-the-box solutions, templates, connectors, and application services. Don’t settle for off-the-shelf solutions that require extensive customization and large implementation price tags. Differentiate by building future-proof solutions on Mendix.
Flexible and engaging retail experiences
Engage with customers on their terms
Whether it’s discovering new products on a laptop or making a purchase on a native mobile application, customers expect frictionless and unified digital experiences across all touchpoints. For retailers, this requires access to accurate, real-time data across the value chain.
The Mendix application development platform helps retailers deliver the experiences that customers demand by connecting siloed data and disparate systems, and empowering teams to develop best-of-breed, customer-focused solutions.
Create better employee experiences
Approachable digital solutions are crucial for today’s workforce. Labor shortages, inflation, and other modern-day challenges can disrupt operations, especially for teams that are reliant on other departments for data and process visibility.
With Mendix, retailers can enhance employees’ experiences by connecting databases, legacy systems, point solutions, and services for full transparency and streamlined collaboration. Higher visibility can help reduce manual processes so teams can focus on value-add tasks and further enhancing customer experiences.
Modernize core systems to maximize efficiency
From outdated architecture to unreliable technology, legacy systems are incapable of supporting the emerging technologies required for retailers to remain competitive.
Modernizing legacy systems helps retailers increase agility and stay resilient through changing market demands. With Mendix, you can migrate off your mainframe, extend your core systems by adding functionalities, or fully replace your legacy system.
