Retail is in an era of disruption and we are living in a world where experiences are valued more than things. This is true not just for what consumers purchase but how they purchase. Today’s consumer expects a shopping experience that is personal, informative and convenient.
Retail as an industry must evolve and become truly omni-channel in order to accommodate these consumer demands. Brick-and-mortar stores are downsizing their footprint and moving online, while online retailers are building brick-and-mortar locations to allow consumers to interact with their products. Technologies, such as click-and-collect, automated checkout and Near Field Communications (NFC) are redefining the customer journey touchpoints for all retailers.
While a majority of retailers know they must become more innovative and transform how they leverage technology to improve both their operations and customer experience, they must weigh the risks associated with this change. Few companies have the resources or margins to experiment and run failed pilots. Some companies simply don’t know where to begin or even what technologies to adopt. These retailers need someone they can trust – a partner with the right experience that will bring a level of certainty to innovation. This partner is Jabil Retail.
