The retail industry has evolved over the past two decades, with much of the change coming from developments in internet growth and eCommerce retailers.
With consumers’ power increasing, with access to more shopping platforms and buying choices than ever before. There are now multiple ways to find a solution to a purchasing need, retailers in both the 'physical' and 'digital' sense must hold a strong position to finalise that all-important customer sale.
The product purchase path can have a number of hurdles. From gaining the consumer's attention with the right advertising and promotion, to managing product inventory to meet that demand, offering the right parcel delivery options, and managing the product return services to keep customers happy and business profitable. Creating a successful retail business model is only the beginning, as there is still the job of keeping them loyal with great customer service.
