Trends in retail
The retail market is changing. Customer expectations continue to rise, margins are under pressure, labour is scarce and ‘traditional’ business models are struggling. As a retailer, how do you deal with these challenges? And how do you ensure a sustainable and durable business model? With low-code, you take a step in the right direction and accelerate digital innovation.
Low-code & Retail
Low-code is the solution for retailers to innovate quickly and meet changing customer needs. For instance, low-code makes it easy to develop mobile apps for personalised and digital shopping experiences. You also automate complex back-end processes with low-code. Important processes which help you reduce operational costs. For the use of low-code within retail, we previously saw the following uses and applications:
