Retail Winners recognize that customer service is the single most important driver of success in today’s omnichannel marketplace, and they are racing to deploy all their human, store and technology assets in order to compete.
Recognizing the need to provide the best omnichannel experience in the most cost-efficient way, retailers are investing in a central commerce hub as the answer to this challenge. Maintaining multiple, siloed systems is expensive and puts retailers at risk of delivering a disjointed experience.
At end of day, omnichannel customer service is what customers expect, and is the cost of doing business today. Where once it was a differentiator, excellent omnichannel customer service must be provided and promoted, or retailers will not be getting the wallet share they’re targeting. In this webinar, we’ll explore effective strategies and technologies to improve customer service and re-engage disaffected consumers.
Today’s consumer has unprecedented access to product and pricing information. Virtual merchandising technology allows retailers to extend the benefits of online shopping into the physical store.

By extending shelf space to a limitless number of products and offering access to online product information and content, virtual merchandising is a new and exciting way for customers to shop and experience your brand.
During this session, we’ll discuss how bringing virtual elements into the physical store gives retailers added control, flexibility and customizability to the customer experience.
