Industry-leading software firm ELEKS to host DigitalTalk on the “new normal” for retail and delivery. Global digital transformation experts share insights on the challenges facing brands as more consumers head online.
April 2020 saw a 49% rise in U.S. consumers shopping online — a trend which was mirrored across Europe, where social distancing resulted in 57% of consumers relying on e-commerce more than ever before (Adobe, Digital Economy Index, April 2020).
As retail and logistics businesses the world over consider what the post-COVID future might look like, one of global leading software companies, ELEKS, kicks off a series of online innovation forums for business leaders navigating the shifting sands of commerce.
The first instalment of DigitalTalk: Innovation in Retail and Delivery — taking place online, on Thursday, June 11th — will feature insight from a panel of global digital transformation leaders. Speakers, including Alex Rubin, X.Y.0.1‘s Robert D. B. Leinders-Krog, Haroon S Khan of SANSO™️, and ELEKS’ Volodymyr Getmanskyi and Yevhenii Shykiriavyi, will unpick the obstacles facing the consumer goods sector, as more and more people rely on e-commerce as their primary mode of purchasing. They will delve into the issues surrounding how to create a responsive omnichannel customer experience and the imperfections of omnichannel, positioning & branding on the “edge of the abyss”, and the potential impact of COVID-19 on the telecoms industry. They will also consider how businesses can ensure inclusive design in the age of digital retail.
The panellists leading ELEKS’ first DigitalTalk have an extensive cumulative background in digital transformation, Data Science, analytics and business strategy — each bringing their own insight on how innovations in retail and delivery could change how we buy and sell goods, for good.
