Some Multichannel examples

Some interesting news and posts related to Multichannel commerce, thought I’d collate what I’ve run into this week here.

Phone and Web integration: Connecting and tracking conversions between the call center and website, over at Unbounce. I got information that a company called Freespee offered services around this, check it out here. I couldn’t really judge from their website their main target audience, so have requested more info. Not sure yet if they would be competing with e.g. ATGs (now Oracle) Optimization services click-to-call and click-to-chat, where you’ll get great stats on where people are calling from.

Web and store integration: The other great example was an article in New York Times, describing how Nordstrom have linked all their stores inventory to the web, so a web shopper could get the item packed and shipped if a store had that available. I’m sure there was some technical challenges and work on thresholds etc to get that to work. The article was well worth a read.

Mobile: And third, Thomas Husson at Forrester had a good post about mobile predictions for 2011. Some interesting things there regarding mobile bridging the gap between digital and physical worlds.
