2017 started with uncertainty in the global business landscape. Uncertainty around Brexit and a new US President have impacted the long-term plans of both the UK as a nation and those of individual retailers. Is this the first sign of the challenges ahead?
The ongoing pace of changing consumer behaviour and technological disruption pose both a threat and opportunity for retailers. Love it, or hate it, eCommerce platform disruption is close on the horizon of today’s business landscape and has the potential to both help and harm.
On 17 May at 2pm BST, InternetRetailing will be hosting Deepak Anand (Shopware) and Ian Nelson (Retail Reply), who will give you an overview on which chances and threats disruptive technologies hold for retailers and how they can deal with them. They both believe that it is essential for retailers to understand the challenges of disruptive events such as unwelcome platform migrations and device strategies and to use these events to their benefit.
In the webinar, you’ll learn all about;
- Priorities for an eCommerce platform
- Benefits of shorter time to market and agile approach
- What winners in Retail do when selecting an eCommerce platform?
- Learn about Mobile first approach
- Conversation commerce, what does it mean?
Join this webinar and make sure that eCommerce platform disruption will be a chance for your business, not a threat!
