A Hostile Environment

It’s different this time. Retail has been forever altered by the rise of digital commerce, borderless competition and price-sensitive, non-loyal shoppers who have been scarred by the Great Recession and ongoing economic uncertainty.

Responding to Shoppers

Shoppers expect you to deliver relevant pricing and promotions to them, and if you don’t, they are unforgiving and will go elsewhere. Understanding shopper price sensitivity and other demand influencers is critical to predicting demand and meeting financial targets.

Aggressive Competitors

Return on investment must come quickly, be at an attractive TCO, and help fund other, more costly innovation opportunities.
