As omni-channel retail becomes a force that cannot be ignored, consumers are increasingly sharing their valuable "individualized" opinions and purchasing habits via social media, product reviews, and online visits or purchases. Top retailers and brands will discuss their experiences in creating more efficient, agile supply chains using GS1 Standards, which provide the foundation for identifying, capturing and sharing product data, and enable the real-time visibility needed to tap into these rich information sources and effectively leverage more customer-centric strategies. Attendees will walk away with a better understanding of how retailers and brands are using predictive analytics to gain deeper insight into customer behaviors, consumer trends and the forces of loyalty and purchase—to help them make more informed business and supply chain decisions.
