IHL Retail's Radical Transformation/Real Opportunities

Consider These Two Comments From The Report

  • 16 Retailers account for 66% of Store Closings mostly from poor financing or poor management decision making.
  • 24% of Amazon's revenue came from shoppers who first tried to buy at a brick & mortar store before resorting to Amazon.

The Message 

Your customers don't need to compromise, they have more buying choices than ever before. 

Today, retail planning must be precise and detailed.  The modern retailer must combine the strength of people with the precision and detail available through today's advanced technologies and that includes analytics and forecasting.
