High Touch, digital first strategies
all selling has gone digital
But that doesn’t mean there isn’t any room for the relationship. High touch and strategic sales still win, but they can’t win by themselves.

Buyers still spend time on the purchase path, but most hours are spent online and not in meetings. Vendors fight for a precious few hours.

WHAT TO EXPECT
Speaking of sustainability
Software has the power of exponential impact and the potential to radically change the environmental footprint of the fashion and apparel industry. Casey presents to the International Apparel Federation (IAF) how the power of software can help bring sustainability and supply chain traceability to the fashion industry.
The year 2020 restricted our ability to socialise, work, travel, and shop the way we used to. The impact on commerce was unprecedented. The pandemic accelerated shift from in-store to digital sales. Out of necessity, customers and sellers swiftly moved purchases online, rewriting the retail playbook for the foreseeable future.
Technology of record
