Technology has transformed the retail sector. Online shopping has taken over from bricks and mortar retail, but tech is continuing to drive change. The need for speed has raised the bar in terms of what customers want and when they want it.

Next-day delivery has been followed by Amazon’s one-hour delivery service and now the talk is of drones delivering goods within 30 minutes or less. Companies are investing huge sums of money into customers’ buying habits and better analytics. Where will it end?

BusinessCloud has joined ProManchester to look at how technology continues to change the face of retail and what we can expect next.
