If you had told me in February that I would not go out to shop for months, I would have never believed you. But it is the reality, and I have yet to return to bricks-and-mortar stores.
Now, as lockdown eases, high streets are looking less like ghost towns. I was wondering how shopping during the crisis has been for others. This blogs takes a look at shopper sentiment and some measures retailers could implement to reassure customers and entice them back to stores.
The Future Stores report did not foresee such a tumultuous start to the 2020s. That said, several of its conclusions remain relevant in post-pandemic retail, though in different ways than we expected.
Research shows that one-third of all orders during peak season in the UK are either late or incomplete. Even worse, 5% of all online orders fail to make it to the right person or place. But all hope isn’t lost. Smart technology could hold the answer to this costly and damaging problem.

When you think back to 2010, it doesn’t seem all that far away, does it? But over the past decade, many things have changed – and not just in terms of additional wrinkles. The retail industry has changed, too – and really very radically. E-commerce has swept all before it. Amazon, already a force to be reckoned with in 2010, continues to dominate and grow.
Whenever I mention Gemba Process Innovation (GPI) to a customer, I tend to be met by a blank stare. As this concept is quickly becoming central to the Panasonic philosophy, I thought I would explain what it means and why it has garnered the attention of a number of major retailers.
GPI is a continuous improvement approach that goes beyond its predecessors, such as kaizen and kata. It leverages Panasonic technology to provide valuable insights into operations. So why is it needed, now more than ever?

Why did we open our own store? First and foremost, this is the place to learn and create solutions that embody the next generation convenience store format with FamilyMart through a real life operation.
In this article, I will take a closer look at the kind of solutions being tested there and the benefits they can bring to retailers and their customers.
Retail and retailers have been in the news a lot over of the past few years. It is an industry that is evolving to meet the changing demands of the consumer in a digital world.
As a solutions provider for this industry, we need to ensure that we truly understand the needs of the retailer and how we can solve their challenges. Obviously, we work in collaboration with our customers to do this, however, we have gone one step further. Panasonic have opened their own convenience store in Japan. You can find the project purpose and detail in this blog.
According to the UN, about 1.3 billion tonnes – a third of all food produced for human consumption – goes to waste every year. While the lion’s share of waste in these countries comes down to consumers, a significant amount comes from supermarkets. It is clear that retailers must play their part in combating this issue. Read the blog to find out what can retailers do to help reduce their food waste?
At a recent Panasonic event, we brought together some industry experts for discuss how in-store technology innovation can transform the consumer experience and how shops can maximise their ROI from these new technologies. This blog shares a few key takeaways from the presentation given by Tim Gardner, Head of Creative Partnerships at Retail Week.
The digital transformation of retail is in full swing: IoT, artificial intelligence and others are opening up completely new opportunities. But even if bits and bytes are rewriting the rules, physical (yet smart) shops still have a pivotal part to play. Omnichannel solutions are the name of the game. They are blurring the boundaries between in-store and online.
Against this background, Panasonic Business Europe teamed up with the Cologne-based EHI Retail Institute to produce a white paper for our In-store Insights series. The document, based on multiple EHI surveys/studies, takes a long, hard look at the digitisation of retail in Germany – what is happening now and what can we expect to see in the future.
The logistics industry has been leading the way for at least a decade with the implementation of telematics; using it to help plan faster delivery routes, save money on fuel and cut travel time. But the notion of autonomous vehicles and the likelihood of them being part of our fleets in the near future is extending our vision of what’s possible beyond simple data analytics. I’m often asked by customers what my view is on the future of our fleets – what’s realistic and what’s a pipedream. I think it’s all possible, but we do have to work together…
In this blog, you can find a part of that.
On Monday, Panasonic picked up an award at the Checkout National Supplier Retail Awards 2019 for ‘Retail Innovation of the year,’ in collaboration with Domus Projects. The accolade was in recognition of our work with Londis Convenience Stores at Dublin City University in Ireland, where we created an integrated retail solution. Which kind of technology helps this store? You can find the detail in this blog.
The 35th International Supply Chain Conference was held in Berlin on 17/18 October 2018. It is one of the largest events for the logistics industry anywhere in Germany, and I had the opportunity to attend. Over the course of two days, major logistics players and their suppliers and service providers came together to discuss the challenges they face, and possible solutions – some of which have already proven their viability in real-world settings.
One topic that garnered significant attention was last-mile delivery and the hurdles to be overcome during this phase – particularly in congested urban areas.
How logistics players are overcoming this situation? You can find that in this blog.
