Omni-channel supply optimization marks a new phase in China's on-demand retail

With the omni-channel strategy being a new growth driver for brands and retailers, optimizing the supply chain of offline and online channels and meeting the diversified needs of consumers is a key way to promote greater growth for players in on-demand retail industry. As the channels are increasingly diversified, the demand of consumers also presents differentiated characteristics.

Meanwhile, it is of great significance to promote new products through the omni-channel supply optimization. The features of on-demand retail platforms, such as consumer insights and online and offline integration, are important to solve the pain points for brands in new products promotion.

Wenqi Yang, General Manager of FMCG (fast-moving consumer goods) Business at JD Daojia, said that the key solution is to match supply and demand more accurately and efficiently through digital capacities, and to build a more in-depth brand cooperation ecosystem. JD Daojia plans to further share its robust omni-channel capability and infrastructure with its brand and retail partners in an effort to achieving omni-channel strategy, category operation, marketing upgrades, and win-win results.
