1. Omnichannel Retail Experiences

  • utilising multiple channels to reach customers to make the "task of shopping less stressful and more straightforward."
  • combination of online and bricks & mortar retail experiences.
  • meeting customers needs "regardless of how they shop."

2. Cybersecurity 

  • retailers must take preventative measures to counter the "potential risks associated with retailers digitizing their operations".

"In 2020, Trustwave found that 24% of cyberattacks targeted companies in the retail sector. This surpassed other industries, so retailers must implement some form of security into their online management systems."

3. Custom Mobile Applications

  • retail apps allow direct engagement with customers and improve brand loyalty and recognition.
  • generally those customers "who take the time to download apps typically have a strong interest in that retailer."

"In a 2018 Synchrony study, 67% of consumers downloaded retail apps onto their devices. Whether it’s for browsing or purchasing from a retailer, this is a staggering number."

4. Artificial Intelligence

  • AI will aid the creation of more efficient processes, inventory management, data collection and transactional management. 
  • retailers can improve forecasting and decision making based on AI information.
  • adoption of AI will be ahead of the competition.

5. Voice Recognition

  • effortless shopping leading to increased loyalty.
  • complementary feature to improve CX.

By 2024, it’s estimated that 8.4 billion voice assistants will be in households worldwide. Retailers should take this seriously — many users will ask their Amazon Alexa or Google Home to add to their shopping lists while performing other household chores.

6. Touchless Interactions
