The buzz: Wake-up, Retailers.
For today’s consumer, “the world” is just a few clicks away. Armed with anytime, anywhere information, consumers can (and do) find the best solutions to meet their lifestyle needs, often before they walk into a store, restaurant, or service center.
But what they’re really doing is maximizing their use of time – their most precious commodity. They don’t have enough time, so they will punish any providers who waste it.
The experts speak.
