Redefining value in the age of the empowered customer
In today’s world—where consumers trust the recommendations of retailers significantly less than they do those of other consumers—retailers must foster brand advocates who will promote their brand to other consumers for them. Such advocates are created by deepening the relationship the consumer has with the retailer through increased trust and a differentiating brand experience. At the same time, recent economic times have taught retailers to keep a weather eye on business performance to control costs and protect fragile profitability. We call this path forward for retailers Smarter Commerce…focusing on the consumer’s brand experience (to deepen the brand relationship and create brand advocates) while improving operational efficiency (to grow the business profitably).

The limitations of the past are rapidly giving way to the art of the possible in ways that could barely be imagined a few years ago. Opportunities for making headway abound.
