Title: Retail Success in the Age of Amazon: Leveraging People, Processes, and Technology to Thrive

Date: Tuesday, August 7
Time: 8:00 a.m. – 8:40 a.m.

Description: The retail industry is on pace to close more than 9,000 stores this year in the United States – even more than were closed during the Great Recession of 2008. Many omni-channel and brick and mortar retailers, however, are finding success competing against e-commerce giants. With the right systems, facilities and distribution network improvements, retailers can shift their focus away from merely surviving to thriving in the age of Amazon.

“I’ll discuss the strategies that retailers can leverage to maintain a competitive advantage over e-commerce giants through a unified customer experience across all channels. The right implementations and improvements allow retailers to compete and thrive in the digital age,” said Barnes.
