Cutting Through the Hype: Defining your 2019 tech strategy & driving results

Isobar & Retail Week have published a white paper to help retailers strategise their technology investments in 2019.

Any technology investments should be naturally aligned to a core customer need and will depend on which stage of digital transformation a retailer or brand may find themselves in. The white paper argues the importance of focusing on customer experience – driving experience at the front end, both in store and online is critical. In addition, the need for clean data before making any investments is a prerequisite. The state of a retailer’s data should determine its future investment priorities. Taking care of back of house operations is a necessity for business growth – further generating an increase in ROI. 
 The white paper covers:

  • Prioritising your technology investment 
  • Investing in the customer experience 
  • Getting the basics right – back of office 
  • The investment roadmap (7 key steps) 

 Isobar Alex Hamilton, Head of Innovation Projects, said, “Retailers need to evaluate their technology capabilities and create a roadmap that highlights where they can be better utilised or replaced, plus identify where new technologies can deliver. Doing so will help them achieve a point of difference and win when it comes to customer experience.”
