What impact has COVID-19 had on the future of the retails and digital journey?

Join a select group of senior thought leaders on this roundtable discussion as we dedicate 90 minutes to answering one of the most valuable questions in business today…

Retailers were well on their journey towards digital retail transformation when COVID-19 hit. Then, non-essential businesses were shut down and stores were forced to close. Retailers experienced unprecedented disruption in business operations, supply and demand, and workforce. Many experienced loss of revenue while others increased costs of operations.

As we move forward to restart business, retailers are grappling with the new normal. They are faced with a declining global economy, continued health concerns, a dramatic shift in customer demand priorities and disrupted global supply chains. So, what measures can retailers take in the immediate and medium term to resume operations to generate revenue while managing cost? How do we forecast the demand fluctuation and manage shortages and overstock in supplies? How do we restore the workforce to deliver a safe and assuring experience to our customer?

Join Infor and a select group of industry experts to discuss the impact COVID-19 has had on the future of retail and the digital journey. This 90-minute virtual roundtable will also deep dive into how retailers can build a connected, intelligent and resilient retail ecosystem moving forward.
