Why retail strategies are failing

Published By: ExpertVoice     Published Date: Jun 20, 2019
Are we in the midst of a retail apocalypse? In spite of doomsday headlines, brands that focus on the customer experience continue to succeed. A good retail experience can be as complicated as incorporating innovative technology like 3D printing to create a clothing item on-demand, or as simple as focusing on the store employees. Unfortunately, a lot of brands and retailers overlook the latter. In fact, only 35% of retail employees feel as though training is effective. That’s a scary number, because without a well-trained retail sales force, consumers are left to their own devices.

This dynamic IT is the foundation for a smart workplace that will enable you to attract and keep top talent – and shape the future-ready enterprise, now.

Published By: Hewlett Packard Enterprise     Published Date: May 11, 2018
The widespread use of mobile devices — smartphones and tablets — provides anytime, anywhere computing and communications resources for individuals worldwide. Both smartphones and tablets have made the transition from a personal resource, acquired and supported by consumers, to a professional resource, provided and supported by employers.

Digital Channel Threat Report: Derisking Convenience

Published By: SAS     Published Date: Jan 17, 2018
Financial institutions (FIs) must support the channels and services that consumers demand in order to remain competitive with each other and with disruptive competitors. To that end, supporting account opening, delivering new transactional features, and facilitating payments through digital channels have become table stakes.

Marketing Attribution: Giving Credit Where Credit is Due

Published By: SAS     Published Date: Jan 17, 2018
Consider the many ways that a customer encounters your brand – organic results on a search engine, display media campaigns, social media links, re-targeting on external sites, etc. One thing is certain – consumer journeys are far from linear. They can occur across multiple platforms, devices and browsers. The problem is that organizations are often constrained to channel-limiting decisions regarding their media investment allocations. Marketing attribution helps you analyze the impact and business value of company-generated marketing interactions to help make the best marketing investment decisions. The challenge is to interpret the massive volumes of customer data that continues to expand day by day.

This RSR custom research report explores the impact of omnichannel methods on merchandising, marketing and the supply chain; specifically, what analytical capabilities address the challenges that omnichannel selling and fulfillment pose for retailers.
