The Future of Stores: Harnessing the power of visual analytics to understand customer behaviour
The BRC in association with Qlik, will be hosting a webinar looking at how retailers, despite the challenges of the rapid shift online, can achieve significant growth in profitability from their stores
by harnessing the power of visual analytics.
In this session you will hear from the BRC how technology and policy changes and driving a fundamental shift in the role of the store. You will also learn from Qlik ─ whose software underpins the BRC-KPMG Retail Sales Monitor dashboard ─ how visual analytics is providing insight into the best locations to open new stores, and how, through harnessing mobile and IoT technology, retailers are able to respond to shopping behaviour inside the store to maximise performance.
