55% of online shoppers encounter multiple purchase or billing problems, causing more than half of those shoppers to doubt the retailer’s legitimacy.
A company’s online presence has become as important as a physical store, and for some the online store is their only sales channel. Since customers are looking for a sophisticated shopping experience, ‘offering seamless customer experience’ across all available retail channels – Web, mobile devices, brick-and-mortar stores, email, etc. – has taken the center stage.
Retail industries face many challenges related to ongoing changing market trends, customer demand, and market globalization. When it’s all about transformation and swift change, retail systems and applications become business critical.
With little margin for error, retail industries need experienced partners who can perform unbiased testing and IT Quality Assurance in a brave new omni channel world. Mike Hershkovitz of QualiTest Group and Damien Walsh of SmartBear presented this Retail webinar to cover what can be done to mitigate these risks.
This webinar covered the following:
- Our Retail survey results
- Retail components (POS, OMS, eComm, omni channel, etc.)
- Risks common to Retail related to those components
- Ways to mitigate those risks
