All about agile retail

Agile retail is a short term that denotes sweeping change in the modern retail space. Within this concept, the end consumer reigns supreme. Successful agile retail is all about satisfying end consumer experience, interface, needs and desires as and when these arise. When deployed right, it opens the door to a host of advantages including:

  • Bigger thinking
    Agile retail leaves ‘playing it safe’ and stifling of possible pioneering ideas in the dust. Rather than have creative silos, agile retail unites diverse brains across an organisation to spark more audacious idea evolution.
  • Swift testing and deployment
    Online retail facilitates immediate real-time consumer feedback on user experiences. To survive and thrive in the ‘speed of light’ retail market of today, user feedback incorporation and solutions improvement testing must be rapidly deployed. In other words, it’s is about expeditious project validation or invalidation to thoroughly align retail offerings with real consumer need.
  • Eliminating handbrakes
    Poor performing or misdirected projects can be like a lead anchor to retail success. It empowers retailers to slay ill-conceived projects with remarkable haste to minimise their drain on budget and resources.

In essence, it fast forearms retailers with the information they need to make savvy deployments and business decisions. On the strength of insights, retailers can strategically adapt, innovate and roll out technological responses according to real-time customer ‘hot buttons’. Agile retail places you in touch with emerging trends and empowers you to take advantage of current opportunities you may otherwise have missed.
