5 behaviours of top performing retailers

1. Embrace change and adapt

In the face of change, there are just two options; compete or complain. The most successful retailers embrace change and use it to their advantage.

2. Use data to make smarter decisions

In a market so volatile, it’s impossible to rely on instinct or experience alone. The most successful retailers used real-time market data to inform all of their business decisions.

3. Optimise margin vs speed of sale

Different stock profiles mean there’s no one size fits all approach here. But the most successful retailers maximised their profitability by balancing these metrics.

4. Used technology to automate processes

Technology reduces manual work and when used correctly can enhance the customer experience. Retailers using technology get more time back to focus where it matters most
