Webinar No 1: Connecting omnichannel touchpoints - embracing innovation in consumer analytics to transform the customer journey
Reductions in revenues', 'impending recessions', 'high-street lockdown' - today's news continues to provide a darkened outlook for retailers. However, as often is the case in the retail environment, there are opportunities ahead for those who embrace innovation in these challenging times.Join our interactive virtual panel for a lively discussion on the following topics:

  • How harnessing Big Data can help you better understand who your customers and prospects truly are - including their preferences, intent signals and key demographics
  • How mobile trace data could be transforming your insights around the movement of purchasing power, by time of day and day of week - whether you have customer data or not
  • Insights on the core technological competencies being adopted by retailers who are capturing market share in this challenging environment - and why data integrity holds the key
  • Comparing in-store touchpoints with the rest of your brand's omnichannel strategy
  • Delivering connected experiences that customers have come to expect
  • How COVID has forced new behaviours from previously untapped audiences
