Macy's, one of world's largest retailers, has become a Google Cloud customer. From optimising inventory management, to increasing collaboration between employees across locations and roles, to helping build omnichannel experiences for their customers, Google Cloud works with retailers to help make the shopping experience as seamless and personalised as possible. 

By moving its infrastructure to the cloud, and taking advantage of Google Cloud data warehousing and analytics solutions, Macy's is streamlining retail operational functions across its network, Google Cloud CEO Thomas Kurian wrote in a blog.

With the opening of its new approximately 675,000 square-foot distribution center 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—even during peak retail seasons like back to school and the holidays.

"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 utilise our warehouses," said Macy’s CTO, Naveen Krishna.

Leveraging Google Cloud's data management and analytics solutions, Macy's new warehouse management system will initially service 200+ Macy's Backstage off-price stores at launch. Macy's will begin rolling out this software solution to additional distribution centers that service its nationwide fleet of Macy's and Bloomingdale's department stores, as well as their respective websites' direct-to-customer orders.
