Today's grocery retailers face an increasingly competitive marketplace, where shopper loyalty to your store is difficult to earn and even harder to protect. Competition from supercenters and convenience stores threaten your market share. Rising costs and the difficult economic environment put pressure on prices and profits. Shoppers demand better value, excellent service and a convenient shopping experience. A recent IBM study (US) showed consumers who are advocates for your banner spend significantly more money and influence others to do the same.
So how do you build consumer advocacy and loyalty?
Taking an integrated approach to store technology can lower costs, provide scalability to grow and the ability to respond quickly to new business initiatives and opportunities.
