Macy’s turns to the cloud

By Retail Technology | Monday August 19 2019

Iconic US department store Macy’s has moved its infrastructure to the cloud to improve their shopping experience

The retailer has partnered with Google Cloud to take advantage of its data warehousing and analytics solutions.

With the opening of its new approximately 675,000 square-foot distribution centre in Columbus, Ohio, Macy’s is leveraging the scalability of Google Cloud to ensure that merchandise is accurately and efficiently received, sorted, ticketed, picked, packed and shipped from the distribution centre to the stores.

Macy's new warehouse management system will initially service 200+ Macy’s Backstage off-price stores at launch. 

First step

It will begin rolling out this software solution to additional distribution centres that service its nationwide fleet of Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s department stores, as well as Macys.com and Bloomingdales.com direct-to-customer orders. 

“Powered by software developed at Macy’s technology, this new distribution center is a fantastic first step in our cloud journey. Working with Google Cloud allows us to be more nimble, efficient and flexible in how we utilize our warehouses,” said Macy’s CTO, Naveen Krishna.
