The retail transformation from transactions to services based retail

 

The shift from transaction to service based retail has led physical retailers to evolve their store experiences in order to encourage more customers to complete their purchase journey in-store. Retailers are using innovative technology to deliver outstanding in-store experiences; driving online sales, improving conversions and increasing spend by transforming their brick and mortar stores into hubs for exciting brand experiences and service interactions.

We’re seeing retailers rethink their stores in a variety of ways, for example:

Retailers are reimagining their in-store customer experience to help them:

Customers who engage through multiple channels generate three times the volume of sales and more than twice the margin of store-only customers

A 5 % increase in customer retention produces more than a 25% increase in profit.

Consumer intelligence consultancy, Walker, has estimated that by 2020, customer experience will become the number one differentiator between brands, succeeding both price and product. The study found that changes such as the explosion of digital, the empowered customer, and the acceleration of innovation are having a profound impact on customer experiences.

77% of customers are more likely to buy products recommended to them by family or friends. Through excellent customer experience, word of mouth and social media can be utilised to benefit your business.

By thinking about customer journeys as a series of service experiences, rather than a series of financial transactions, and using technology to improve those experiences, forward-thinking retailers are starting to achieve some phenomenal results
