Real-Time Retail – The New Imperative

Within 5 Years, 883% More Retailers Plan to Identify Customers When They Walk in the Store

The BRP SPECIAL REPORT: Real-time Retail – The New Retail Imperative, addresses how consumers’ expectations of a seamless experience across channels – in the store, on the Web and via their mobile device – requires retailers to deliver a “real-time” shopping experience to meet these elevated demands.

Real-time retail is the ability to deliver a holistic experience to consumers whenever, wherever or however they choose to shop by gathering, analyzing and disseminating customer, product, pricing and inventory data across all channels – in real-time.
