PODCAST: IT Directors from Jaeger and Beaverbrooks speak about the role of the store in a multi-channel world.
On Thursday 23rd February our guests joined Patrick Walker, Head of IT at Beaverbrooks and Richard Blunt, Head of IT at Jaeger, to discuss 'The Connected Store' and the role of the store in a multi channel world.
What immediately became clear is that, while all retailers are on a journey when it comes to reaching customers through multiple channels, some have been clear for some time about the role of the store in this new world.
Both Jaeger and Beaverbrooks are committed to reaching their customers with the right products wherever they are, but they want to do it in a controlled and affordable fashion. In the stores, both are using technology in an integrated fashion in order to enhance the customer experience and make it rewarding for customers to visit. They both view technology as a way to enable the store to communicate with the wider world, other stores and head office, so that customers can find exactly what they want as quickly and easily as possible.
