Customers take center stage: Using innovation to grow your business

This exclusive Retail Asia virtual round table on 28 May will guide retailers on how to meet their customer's needs and sustain their business during the pandemic.

The retail industry's battle with the COVID-19 pandemic isn't over yet; in fact, it's just beginning. Businesses that expect a semblance of normalcy after the crisis have already thrown the proverbial white towel out of the window; and many have accepted their fate that there's no going back to the way it was anytime soon. 

With uncertainty the only thing that’s certain right now, there is one thing that will never change when it comes to retail: customer experience. The customer will always play a crucial part in the success of any retail venture, whether it's in the middle of an economic boom or a worldwide pandemic. Retailers that can create innovations and strategies that revolve around personalised customer experiences have a much better chance of succeeding, even in the midst of a crisis that has brought the retail industry to its knees.
