The pandemic radically—and permanently—reshaped consumer shopping behaviors and spending habits. AWS offers technologies to help CPG companies unify sales channels to ensure consumers find the products they want, when and where they want to buy them.

Make omnichannel commerce a reality
Create a unified commerce experience so consumers can seamlessly move between your digital channels and physical stores. With AWS, you can focus on enhancing your omnichannel experience and improving collaboration with retailers to maximize revenue growth—not on maintaining your IT infrastructure to make it happen.

Benefits

Flex to meet consumer demand online
Digital commerce is notoriously volatile. With AWS, CPG companies can tap into flexible, elastic cloud services that easily scale up or down depending on demand, so you only pay for what you use. You now have a cost-effective platform that supports all digital channels and responds rapidly to spikes in traffic to ensure a great consumer experience.
Innovate faster
Evolving technologies and consumer preferences are rapidly transforming digital commerce. AWS gives you the ability to experiment with new ideas and quickly scale them to increase the effectiveness of your digital commerce initiatives. You can increase conversions and reach new shoppers with real-time streaming, AI, conversational commerce, personalization, and other capabilities across channels.
Improve collaboration with retailers
CPG companies need to improve collaboration efforts with retailers to enhance the shopping experience online and in stores. AWS provides solutions to improve joint planning, store planning, merchandising, and coordination to maximize sales and ensure on-time, in-full (OTIF) compliance.

Unify and enhance the shopping experience

With so many options for consumers to purchase products, AWS can help CPG companies break down the silos across different channels to improve shopper insights, enhance merchandising efforts with retailers, create better shopping experiences, and optimize support across the entire buying journey.
