When your digitization journey truly supports your organization's core value.To contrast with the Digital Transformation in large enterprises, we shed light on what such transformations look like in smaller, more entrepreneurial companies.
This is the story of Shoeby about their challenging journey in creating a successful digital business in the Netherlands. At the heart of everything Shoeby has one simple value - putting the client at the center. But even with customer centricity at the core of its business, Shoeby ran the risk of being overtaken by competitors and had to reinvent their strategy.
Shoeby decided on time, to create an omnichannel experience for their customers. They do not only have hundreds of stores, they also invested in their digital landscape, online shop, app and marketplace. To stay relevant and ahead they invest a lot in data and combining forces within retail, named AIR (Artificial Intelligence for Retail). They are merging the customers digital and physical experience, to become ready for the future, but more important… to be ready now. Now, Shoeby is driving measurable business results with Digital. From adopting Digital to become the Store of the Future.
