Why retailers are shopping for new technology

Technology is not only changing the consumer experience, it’s also impacting the way retailers manage their own organisations. As industry disruptors take on new business models, organisations can no longer rely on conventional performance metrics, such as growth and space productivity. 

Customer behaviour also has retailers planning, strategising and executing across all channels, regardless of whether sales happen in-store or online.

Visibility is critical, especially for leaders and finance. Even going through org model changes, we can pull the data, we can understand some of the themes, we can look to do some restructuring and process validation. Execution is great, because the data is always real-time.
