Take a look at our top insights and predictions on what's next for retail and the pivotal role digital will play in rebuilding retail in the new era.

Accessibility

When there is so much uncertainty in the industry, why not increase your market share by 20% by creating products and services that are accessible to everyone? With a significant increase in the number of people accessing online services through necessity, it is critical that retailers ensure their e-commerce sites are fully accessible to all as soon as possible. Audit your online platforms to find out where you can improve your accessible retail experiences.

Supply Chain & Logistics

Lost revenue and brand loyalty are the unfortunate consequences if retailers don’t manage change correctly. With retailers reducing access to their apps to cope with surging demand, customers were left with no choice but to choose retailers based on their availability and supply over years of brand loyalty. Leverage technology to ensure that your systems are more resilient than your competitors.

Touch Free Experiences

Despite 63% of customers saying they would be willing to come back into store, there is and will be a long-term focus on ways to reduce the spread of Covid-19. Exploring ways to create seamless, touch-free experiences is critical to continued success in a post covid world, safeguarding your business and increasing customer loyalty

Crisis Response

It is more critical than ever to understand who your customers are and how to communicate with them effectively. Why not use data you already have to help effectively manage these relationships? Especially in these volatile times it will help reassure clients and drive brand loyalty.
