“With NewStore, we have completely transformed the way we run our stores. Our associates are able to give customers the best possible experience with customer, product, and inventory data at their fingertips,” said Josee Larocque, Senior Vice President, DTC & Digital Transformation, Burton Snowboards. “As we reopen stores in North America following the COVID-19 pandemic, they will all run on NewStore — a strategic roadmap item in our plan to focus on our DTC business and the omnichannel customer experience in 2020 and beyond.”
NewStore is the first cloud platform that delivers Omnichannel-as-a-Service. It integrates customer, transaction, and inventory data with an omnichannel order broker, and makes that data available in real-time on intuitive store associate apps. A complete mobile point of service in the hands of associates means they can deliver personalized brand experiences through mobile checkout, endless aisle, store fulfillment, inventory management, and clienteling. Burton is using the following NewStore platform features:
- Omnichannel Order Broker
- Mobile Checkout
- Endless Aisle
- Store Fulfillment
- Inventory Management
- Salesforce Integration
“COVID-19 has had a major impact on the retail industry, accelerating the need for omnichannel and a more integrated digital strategy. This was a vision and a plan already set forth by Burton as part of its 2020 digital transformation, and the timing couldn’t be better for us to go live,” said Stephan Schambach, Founder and CEO, NewStore. “As Burton reopens stores globally, it is able to serve customers safely and efficiently.”
