While the famed “merchant princes” of retail may be long gone, the innovations and technologies driving business today aim to do what they did best: sell compelling fashion by offering top-notch service in a way that delights customers. And where yesterday’s merchandisers relied on intuition, today’s retail leaders are making data-driven decisions to boost sales and margins as well as increase shopper loyalty. And it is not just at in-store and online. The entire supply chain is being enhanced and empowered by artificial intelligence, predictive analytics and data science. Today's tech solutions solve problems and empower retailers.
