Major retailers including Macy's have made significant technology investments in omnichannel which is being led by consumer demand. Omnichannel retail has reached a tipping point. Retail technology is rapidly evolving from serving customers through bricks-and-mortar stores to now having to serve them from through a number of different channels.

Loyalty programs have taken off really well and basically every supplier is offering something free for its customers.  When there are large amounts of data being generated through loyalty programs measurement in analytics can be complex. To overcome big data challenges a common approach is testing several specific experiments. Whether its data from customer feedback to optimization related data, asking the right questions and acting as the problem solver can resolve issues.

Branding can be a memorable experience for consumers. As the loyalty program grows the benefits are two fold. The consumers also frequently grow with the program as it evolves and the retails has access to better consumer insights. The most loyal consumers can be analyzed, and the programs as a tool can retain customers by learning from the insights.

IDC announced for 2013, retail companies will continue growth with economic risks being a key risk factor. Growth will be leveraged through omnichannel retail with the objective of addressing specific industry requirements. Consumers today are expecting this type of personalization and customization online and for the other channels.
