What The Experts Say
"Too many retailers play Whac-A-Mole with returns. Organizations must lean into a culture of insights and agility to understand the 'why' and effectively address the root cause."
"By proactively identifying and addressing the root cause of product returns early in the retail cycle, retailers improve the customer experience, strengthen relationships, and increase customer lifetime value. Furthermore, adjusting future product flows and online presentations reduces future returns, lowers costs and lifts sales."
"Retail returns are a significant challenge for retailers, costing the industry billions of dollars every year through lost revenue, processing costs, customer churn, and environmental impact. While many retailers focus on improving their return processes, there is a significant opportunity to reduce the very occurrence of returns by addressing root cause issues."
