It’s just this kind of innovation that has proved a winner in our previous Internet Retailing Awards – now the time has come for you to help decide this year’s winners. Find out more here about how to nominate. It’s also important to keep thinking about how to stay ahead at a time when online sales are not growing as fast as in previous years. Today we cover figures from both the ONS and IMRG. Today’s guest comment comes from Sridhar Turaga of Mu Sigma, who considers why great customer support is just so important – and how it can be delivered.
