Digital Sales Optimization Round Table
Businesses who have built a strong digital foundation are in a better position to weather change – we saw that when COVID-19 brought a few years of digital investment in a few months and are still seeing it now.
Retailers are playing offense and defense every single day. Offense is innovation, asking questions like how do I meet the ever-changing needs of my customers? How do I reimagine my brick-and-mortar operations? How do I deliver experiences that exceed customers’ expectations? How do I get a 360 Degree view of my customers? How do I reinvent my business model to accelerate to the new normal? If there is one thing to be learned following COVID-19, it’s that agility is the name of the game.
All the way from a single view of a customer, search to interaction, payment/transaction and pick-up/delivery options, engaging from customers across all touchpoints while creating a unique customer experience. The band aid for omnichannel has been ripped off and we saw an explosion of buying online and picking up in store during COVID-19. Mastercard research showed that 79% of consumers were using contactless payments citing safety and cleanliness as the key drivers whilst recent McKinsey research showed that 10-15% of consumers expect to buy all of their purchases for discretionary and non-essential goods online after COVID-19.
At the same time, retailers are playing defense – unlocking data insights and eliminating silos within organization, ensuring stores are safe and efficient, as well as the health and safety of your employees.
