IREU Top500 Dimension Report: Mobile and Cross-Channel, February 2019

At the centre of this report is the idea of enabling customers to buy goods in ways that suit them. That might mean supporting a purchase that begins with research on a desktop PC and continues via mobile search, but is completed within a retailer’s app. The customer may then opt to pick up an item at a specific store.

Even European retailers not yet able to offer these kinds of joined-up purchases are familiar with the essential ideas here – if only because of competitors offering such services.

But that does not mean retailers should be blasé about the challenges cross-channel retail poses. These kinds of joined-up retail experiences are difficult to get up and running. To sustain them in a cost-effective manner is just as tough.

Within this report, you will learn about:

  • The evolving shopper habits across key regions and channels, from mobile devices to bricks and mortar stores
  • The development of retailer landing pages for better customer experience, including mobile optimisation
  • A view on the future of payments, and the opportunities on the horizon for both the retailers and the shoppers
  • Rankings of IREU Top50 and Top100 Mobile and Cross-Channel retailers
  • Insightful case studies from Carrefour, Screwfix and Gigantti – the largest multichannel specialist electrical and telecommunications retailer in Europe
