Business Reporter: In Today’s World of Stripped-down Shopping, Retailers Need to Start Focusing on the Essentials

Vlad Poptamas

Ever since high-street shopping fell victim to the onslaught of online retail – about ten years ago and counting – brick-and-mortar outlets have convinced themselves that, if only they could make physical shopping more interesting or fun – anything – they would somehow return to their rightful position at the top of the pile.

It was inevitable that something would come along to put paid to this wishful thinking, writes  CEO Richard Harris, in a new article for Business Reporter. And the Covid-19 pandemic has not, he says, so much hurt retail as taught retailers how seamlessly consumers could move online. “It turns out that although buying is essential,” Harris writes, “Shopping isn’t.”

With the concept of “experiential retail” now rapidly fading into a past that isn’t coming back, retailers need to focus on how to best approach the new post-experiental era.

Harris outlines two key concepts that businesses need to master if they’re to prosper – “understanding intention” and “clearing the path”. Machine learning will have a big part to play in the “new normal” of online retail, and the ability to predict consumer behaviour, and respond to it in real time, could mean the difference between a completed transaction and an abandoned cart.

“When you visit a retailer’s website, the site knows what you’re likely to do and behaves accordingly,” Harris explains. “The site ‘clears the path’ and offers a clean interface to someone ready to buy. By contrast, it shows ads and landing page varieties to someone who is unlikely to convert.”

is already leading the way, building thousands of models for companies using its Predictive Intelligence Platform, that boost revenue and reduce inefficient ad spending. Rather than getting people to linger in stores where they’ll eventually buy something, in the post-experiential era, it’s all about making shopping as fast, seamless and simple as possible.

The methodology is a security testing, which is used to analyze security from the inside of a mobile environment. The mobile application penetration testing methodology concentrates on file system, hardware, and network security.The test results can provide an organization with knowledge of the vulnerabilities in the mobile application, loopholes, and attack vectors before delivering an app to the user, thus offering insights on how to mitigate the potential risks of mobile applications and secure the user credentials associated with it. Mobile application users are becoming aware of the different threats and thus the deployment of mobile application penetration testing is rapidly increasing. Therefore, the mobile application penetration segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.By deployment mode, the cloud segment to grow at a higher rate during the forecast periodIn the cloud deployment mode, instead of implementing the software solution on the local hardware, businesses subscribe to the solution hosted on a third-party remotely located server.
