Transform your customer experience

According to investment firm UBS, nearly 8,000 US retail store closures were announced in 2017—eclipsing the previous record of 6,163 closures during the 2008 recession.1 According to the National Retail Federation, while total retail sales are expected to grow around 4% in 2018, that number reflects growth of 10-12% in online sales, offset by continued declines in store-based sales.
