疯狂的一年里,行业走到了一起

是的,2020年即将结束。您可能需要再次阅读该行。 we’ll wait. Whew. You’ve dealt with a global pandemic, the subsequent weakening of the economy 和 a tumultuous presidential election. Other than that, it has been a very routine, kinda quiet year. 

不得不 shut down your business while your customers 是 in lockdown isn’t something you think about putting in a business plan as a ‘just in case’ line item. And having to contend with government restrictions 和 crumbling product/service demand will undoubtedly continue well into 2021. 

但是,隧道尽头有灯 – 对于许多人来说,它已经发光了。有了美国的所有不间断订单, many CE categories, including the computer/peripherals, TV 和 appliance spaces, among others, have actually done quite well. Spending more time using older products at home has had a large percentage of consumers thinking upgrade.  

That trend is more about good fortune, so what I’ve been even more excited to see is the industry coming together in the form of programs, virtual events 和 simply reaching out to one another to help everyone get through this mess. Here are 我指的是几项举措: 

全国零售联合会(NRF)在大流行期间一直是所有零售的灯塔, and their 开门行动 只是对此的进一步证明。该数字计划提供了指南和资源,可帮助零售商安全地在“新常态”下进行运营,重点是健康与安全,人员和人员,物流和供应链以及诉讼和责任。自3月以来,NRF已举办了250多次电话和网络研讨会,以使零售商保持最新状态 on health guidelines and regulation. 

和CE行业的零售巨头 such as 全国范围内也已经在今年的几个方面接听了电话。今天,没有什么比大数据更重要了, and Nationwide’s PriMetrix 平台正在指示其成员从平台收集的POS数据中获取更多信息。该小组与提供销售点(POS)数据的大部分成员一起工作,收集了大量有价值的信息,可以采用多种方式对其进行切片和分析。这些努力的结果是上述的 PriMetrix, 和 any additional edge that can be gained through data 如 this is gold during times like these. 

正如我所说,这仅仅是冰山一角,因为有许多消费电子组织/购买团体提供各种计划,培训课程等来帮助消费电子零售业发展。这是一 像上述组织一样,在CE零售领域的许多奇妙事物中,还有CEDIA,HTSA,ProSource,Azione,NATM,HTSN和其他仅是为了帮助其成员零售商度过困难时期的组织, 例如2020年发生的情况( 提到快要完了?)。
