Executive Summary:

The way we shop has changed radically over the last ten years. 

Retailers have moved from a single channel existence, mainly bricks-and-mortar stores and mail order catalogues, to multiple channels. The customer journey is no longer a linear path; the challenge for both retailers and brands is to keep up with a consumer whose shopping journey stops and starts, moves from online to mobile to the storefront and back again.

There is a consolidation underway on the high street – one which has been ignited by the digital revolution and its resulting impact on both customer behaviour and expectations.

Consumers now expect their retail experience to be slick and seamless, regardless of how they choose to interact with a brand. Nine out of ten shoppers (86%) flit between multiple channels during the shopping journey; as a result omnichannel has become the watchword of the industry.
