NRF 2020 Conference Sessions: How to Profit from Personalized CX

How will retail change in 2020 and beyond? Judging from the National Retail Federation’s lineup for its annual expo, data-driven customer experience is the new retail battleground, as retailers struggle to match consumers’ expectations. Successful retail companies who owe much of their success to becoming famous for their top-rate customer experience (CX)—such as Nordstrom and Zappos—are increasingly data-driven.

The top marketers at these firms understand that by connecting and using all their data they can bust down silos and gain deeper insights about what each individual customer really desires. Mass-market retail is dead; long live personalized customer journeys and awesome CX!
