Consumer Business

Retail with the consumer has evolved significantly. It is a world of multiple channels and retailer segments – online, mass merchants, dollar stores, department stores and specialty retail – competing for consumers. Consumers and technology have morphed rapidly, and retail has long ceased to be a “one-size-fits-all” proposition.

The impact of online retail and the retail story continues to unfold. We are witnessing a dramatically altered retail landscape, littered with the remains of well-known and historical retail brands. Consumers and technology continue to change, creating a moving target and endless stream of challenges for even the best retailers. Now more than ever, retail survival is a journey of disruption and not a destination.

Efficiency is the name of the game in consumer business. In today’s markets, achieving that efficiency demands innovative approaches to core business functions, including shared services, supply chain, operational finance, accounting, IT, risk management and compliance. CFGI can help you navigate the dynamic realm of consumer business, where efficiency is the key to thriving in today’s markets.
