Startups in Retail: State of the Union
February 6, 2014
Hosted by Bonnie D. Graham
Today’s buzz: Retail. Today’s smart, digitally-empowered shoppers expect a seamless omni-channel retail experience that lets them combine online and brick-and-mortar browsing, shopping, ordering, and returning at their whim. Are you ready for them? The experts speak. Michael Harris, Optimus Advantage: “Imagine how delighted retail customers would be to negotiate their own price to buy the right product at the right time. And how delighted retailers would be to recover lost sales associated with sticker shock. Futuristic? Not!” Sam Bhat, United Software Associates: “People in the retail industry are better off knowing that if their cash registers are not ringing, it is because their competitors are doing a much better job at influencing customers.” Sanjay Shirole, SAP: “Business opportunities are like buses, there’s always another one coming.” (Richard Branson, Virgin Enterprises).” Join us for their insights and first-hand experiences on Startups in Retail: State of the Union.
