ATLANTA, May 15, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Digital technologies influence half of in-store retail sales, and this number will likely increase to 64 percent, or $2.2 trillion, of in-store sales by year end, according to research from Deloitte Digital. Despite these statistics, Deloitte Digital finds a noticeable divide separates shoppers’ digital behaviors and expectations from the experiences retailers are actually providing.
Bridging this gap requires a comprehensive strategy that reaches beyond the conventional structures of “in-store” and “online” to embrace a much more integrated approach – one that places digital at the heart of the modern retail shopping experience.
Kasey Lobaugh, principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP and chief retail innovation officer, will share insights and implications from Deloitte Digital’s study, “Navigating The New Digital Divide: Capitalizing on Digital Influence in Retail” during Manhattan Associates, Inc.'s (Nasdaq:MANH) Momentum 2015, scheduled for May 17-20 at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge in Phoenix, Ariz.
“Consumer technology influences all industries and mobile devices and related advancements have amplified our expectations for information access, immediacy, service and communications,” said Jeff Cashman, senior vice president, business development, Manhattan Associates. “We are pleased to have Deloitte join us at Momentum and share their keen insights into consumer behavior and what motivates today’s digitally influenced shoppers.”
