The future of retail

The Internet of Things is providing retailers with endless opportunities to leverage insights into consumer behaviour and shopping patterns.

For instance, with IoT, shops can obtain granular retail data that can be used to help retail managers make informed decisions to make their offering more attractive to consumers by, for example, offering personalised discounts. Or by showing consumers offers from retailers that they have already shown interest in, via targeted marketing.

In addition, IoT can provide retailers with innovative solutions such as smart shelves, automated checkouts, in-store layout optimisation, and the ability to make pricing changes across all stores globally within a moment’s notice, thereby improving the overall retail experience.
