Technology-driven Transformation is Reshaping Retail

This research service is part of Frost & Sullivan’s Integrated Commerce Research Programme. It provides an original perspective on how technology trends, MegaTrends and industry trends are driving the digital transformation of retail. The rise of eCommerce, online marketplace platforms, and subscription models, for example, have been complementing, but also disrupting and eroding traditional retail.

Bricks and mortar retailers must respond to the challenge by embracing technology to enhance their physical assets to efficiently create an seamless personalised, immersive, and multi-sensorial shopping experiences.

Technology is becoming pervasive and is ‘transforming every company into an IT company’ as the saying has been for some years. Considering that the most important driver for companies to engage in this digital transformation is the need to improve the customer experience, retailers as the archetypal customer-facing industry are particularly exposed to escalating expectations driven by digital technology, online and integrated omni-channel commerce.

Retailers that fail to embark on a holistic and reasoned engagement with emerging technology that is reshaping and upending the industry will fall behind. They will become unable to meet their customers’ expectations and fade into irrelevance or fully perish.

This research service takes retailers and other readers on an exploratory journey through technology and technology-related changes in the retail environment to provide orientation in this fast-evolving environment.

A research advisor will accompany you so that you can compare samples and reports from different sources, and choose the study that is right for you.

  • Report Delivery
    • How and when I will receive my Report?
    • Most reports are delivered right away in a pdf format, while others are accessed via a secure link and access codes. Do note that sometimes reports are sent within a 12 hour period, depending on the time zones. However, you can contact us to escalate this. Should you need a hard copy, you can check if this option is offered for the particular report, and pay the related fees.
  • Payment conditions
    • What payment methods do you accept?
      1. Credit card : VISA, American Express, Mastercard, or
      2. You can download an invoice to pay by wire transfer, check, or via a Purchase Order from your company, or

    • All companies based in France must pay a 20% tax per report. The same applies to all individuals based in the EU. All EU companies must supply their VAT number when purchasing to avoid this charge.
    • I’m not satisfied. Can I be refunded?
    • No. Once your order has been processed and the publisher has received a notification to send you the report, we cannot issue any refund or cancel any order. As these are not ‘traditional’ products that can be returned, reports that are dispatched are considered to be ‘consumed’.
  • User license
    • The license that you should acquire depends on the number of persons that need to access the report. This can range from Single User (only one person will have the right to read or access the report), or Department License (up to 5 persons), to Site License (a group of persons based in the same company location), or Corporate License (the entire company personnel based worldwide). However, as publishers have different terms and conditions, we can look into this for you.
