Latest OrderDynamics Global Research Finds Only 37.6% of Retailers Offer Click & Collect
OrderDynamics, developers of the world’s most advanced, out-of-the-box Distributed Order Management (DOM) System, today announced new research findings. The Omni-2000 Research: Global sheds light on the omni-channel service offerings of more than 2,000 retailers worldwide. This report is a follow-up and expansion of the company’s 2017 Omni-1000 Research.
Key findings include that less than half of retailers provide shoppers with access to basic inventory visibility. Out of the 2,000+ retailers, only a shocking 38.1% show basic inventory visibility on product pages. A strict like-for-like, year-over-year comparison found a 30.7% drop in active online inventory visibility. This is a concerning drop in an industry experiencing so much change. Passive inventory visibility is a factor in this drop. Unlike active inventory visibility, a passive approach only signals when a good is out of stock.
Based on data collected from retailers in a variety of sectors across the U.S., U.K., Canada, Australia, France, Germany and Austria, the report revealed:
- 37.6% of retailers offer click & collect today.
- 34.8% of BOPIS retailers commit to having orders ready within 24 hours.
- 72.6% of omni-channel retailers offer BORIS (Buy Online, Return In-Store).
- 11.4% of omni-channel merchants have a site optimized for mobile commerce.
For the second year in a row, the U.K. is the leading country in click & collect, with 64% of retailers offering the service. Consistent with last year’s Omni-1000 results, the U.S. lags, ranking lowest of the countries assessed, with only 27.5% of retailers providing BOPIS. Over 69% of consumers acknowledge having tried omni-channel retailing and would like to see more of it. As such, retailers are missing an opportunity for promotion. Further, only 57.1% of retailers offering the service advertise it on their website’s front page.
“To increase sales and retain customers, omni-channel retailers today need to provide customers with clarity,” said Nick McLean, CEO, OrderDynamics. “The Omni-2000 reveals where retailers are strong, and other areas where they are lacking across a variety of metrics. Whether it is low stock visibility or general service awareness about cross-channel fulfillment, these are opportunities to get closer to what drives customer demand. OrderDynamics hopes retailers can use these benchmarks to improve their own businesses.”
