The race for a digital strategy and its fastest possible implementation has never been as relevant as today. Now, in the post-pandemic era, digital customer journeys play a fundamental role. The new social distancing economy requires companies use technological capabilities to minimize real-world risks, invent unique experiences to maximise sales and, above all, increase customer perceived value.
The first things that come to mind regarding digital commerce might be web stores, shopping carts, product recommendations and personalization engines. But that's not the whole package. Emerging technologies and techniques, such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML), Augmented and Virtual Reality (AR/VR), Internet of Things (IoT), Robotic Process Automation (RPA), Natural Language Processing (NLP) and Data-driven processes, can unlock the potential of digital commerce, turning shopping applications into emotional shopping experiences.

Everyone and everything are fated to have a digital representation. It means a one-size-fits-all approach is not going to be enough to stand-out. E-Shops will have to be unique and creative to grab attention. The ultimate challenge will be balancing the customers’ expectations and the complexity of businesses.
Reply will help you to connect both worlds, driving your success in the market
A unique consumer shopping experience can only be offered if the company recognises customers as individuals within micro-moments, manages vast amounts of micro-data, structures it to generate valuable insights and uses them to respond to consumers with benefits. Once again, it’s the end of the one-size-fits-all approach.
