Webinar Description: 

The importance of - and need for - realtime digital communications with shoppers and associates became clear to retailers as the COVID-19 crisis grew.

As promotion activity dropped and shoppers grew reluctant to pick up paper ads, digital shopper engagement became an area of focus for retailers.

  • Identifying the benefits of a realtime communication platform for associates
  • Understanding the multiple benefits of digital shopper engagement
  • Understanding the key drivers of successful digital shopper engagement
