RSi Launches OmniPower Silver to Help CPGs Ignite Omnichannel Growth
Due in larger part to the worldwide spread of COVID-19, the tipping point has arrived for E-Commerce. In the United States alone, a 6% growth in E-Commerce penetration took 10 years, while in the first 8 weeks of the pandemic we saw an additional 11% increase. However, it’s not just the U.S. – E-Commerce has skyrocketed across the globe. In China, online grocery shopping is still up 29% post-COVID-19, while the share of online grocery sales in the UK doubled in only 12 weeks. While we may see a small drop off in use of E-Commerce for grocery, consumers worldwide have expedited the growth of the market by 5 years.
CV-19 has shifted shopper behavior permanently and the time is NOW for Retail & CPG to embrace technological channels to meet this new demand. During the pandemic, Walmart saw a 74% increase in online buying. CEO Doug McMillian commented on the shift, highlighting that “customers who use online grocery spent nearly 50% more than customers who shop only in stores. This is the customer we’re going after; The shopper in our sweet spot who accesses Walmart in multiple ways.” Retailers know that they need to focus on online and grocery E-Commerce. It’s up to CPG’s to ensure they’re upping the game, by optimizing their E-Commerce performance, in order to be prepared for this “new normal.”
In response to the urgency for CPGs to meet this new demand, RSi is excited to introduce our OmniPower Silver Solution for Walmart.
