Webinar: a grocer’s guide to competing in the world of Amazon
Amazon’s amazing success in many retail segments has been a case study in how to use technology to gain market share and win customers. Now that Amazon is getting serious about the grocery segment, it is even more important for our members be mindful of how this new competitor will likely change the dynamics of the industry in the next 12-18 months. In this session, retail industry technology expert, Gary Saarenvirta will examine Amazon’s innovation journey to date, where Amazon is investing right now, and define the requirements to compete in this “new world”. The session will also provide information on how critical artificial Intelligence (A.I.) technology will be to future retail success and examine 3 key areas your business needs to focus on right now.
A.I is a disruptive change equivalent to the commercialization of the internet. It will disrupt your business model, force you to rethink how you make merchandising and marketing decisions and redefine the next generation of winners and losers in the retail environment.
