In our opinion, retail and hospitality enterprises must continue to evaluate and invest in automation technologies because the value propositions associated with such technologies have proven to:
- Aid in the improvement of product turnover;
- Enhance stakeholder interaction;
- Reduce costs;
- Synchronize multi-channel strategies, and;
- Develop competitive advantages/differentiators.
In order to be successful, suppliers of these technologies need to deftly navigate a fragmenting, faster-moving, more crowded market. In order to help suppliers find their way through this maze, VDC has recently announced the launch of our 2010 Retail & Transaction Automation Equipment Market Intelligence Service. This market research program will deliver the insight, analysis and data that suppliers need to make the most profitable product, market and channel development decisions.
