The consumer and retail sector has seen increased change and disruption caused by shifting customer behavior and needs, the impact of technology, and current events. Businesses are intensely focused on identifying and responding to the evolving needs, demands, and preferences of customers in the digital age and offering a value proposition that encompasses much more than price and convenience. This includes exploring and developing new ways to connect and interact with consumers, as well as deciding where to invest in innovation that can drive future success.
