Author: Tim Mason
 
Technological capability, business strategy and consumer expectations are coming together to fuel a truly unprecedented rate of change. Right now, the confluence of consumer tech adoption, retailers’ need to meet and market to customers in the “now,” and Canadian consumers’ willingness to share and engage via digital channels is creating new customer acquisition and retention opportunities.
