The retail industry is quickly evolving. Customers have become the center of the retail experience, with access to retailers from the Web, their phones, in-stores, by contacting call centers and through any platform in between.
The omni channel retail environment is in turn demanding that merchants be more flexible to suit the needs of shoppers. Retailers can no longer operate on a channel-by-channel basis – they need to operate a dynamic empire that can serve customers regardless of where they are and how they prefer to shop.
