The Mobile Retail Blog

Mobile has changed how consumers shop. One of the more crucial steps in the shopping journey - checkout - has been flipped on its head.

Mobile Payment Is a Loyalty Opportunity

Credit and debit cards have been tied to mobile devices and used in card-free transactions for more than a decade now, but they still account for an almost negligible percentage of all payment transactions. Why have consumers been so slow to adopt this new technology?
Omnichannel

To solve omnichannel, elevate tech decisions to the C Suite

If CEOs and other executives take control of their technology decisions, they will have a much better chance at building a thriving business in these disruptive times. Letting teams operate and buy as they did in the past paradigm will no longer fuel successful brands.

Retail fulfillment: speed, assurance and transparency

Fulfillment is the key battleground in the transformation of retail for the mobile age. Consumers don’t care where your stock is located, what they want is for their purchases to arrive quickly and conveniently.
