The three themes that Deloitte mentions in the report as “2018 trends” have long been espoused by our thought leaders:

1. Re-Imagine your Store:  We have done this with in partnership with many retailers. Contact us if you’d like to know how to put “Digital in your Physical”.

2. Experiment with Experience: This should be table stakes for the average telco, but often stores are stuck as dull customer service centres, with little experience or retailing actually happening.

3. Transform Your Business:  Showcase your values and your corporate and social responsibility via your stores – what could be better than telling your customers about the thousands of trees you save each year as a result of going “Paperless”? Contact us to find out how!
