Report summary

With 97% of those retailers questioned advising that they’ve been impacted by digital disruption, there can be no doubt about the importance of retail technology to high street stores.

Digital has altered customer expectations of the retail experience, and in-store technology needs to be compelling, useful and relevant. Customers now require physical purchasing channels to reflect digital ones and will embrace those retailers able to deliver an engaging, personalised, hassle-free and seamless experience across all channels.

From cost reductions and enhancing efficiency to improving productivity and creating a more compelling customer experience, the deployment of retail technology within stores can deliver a wide range of benefits.
