Last year, we all found ways to do business a little differently. As the impact of COVID-19 has been felt around the world, businesses and people have adapted to a more virtual lifestyle.

For many companies, this shift acted as a catalyst, advancing digital transformation efforts that were already underway. When we look to the future of retail, it's clear that success lies in the ability of businesses to embrace technology and adapt to consumer needs.

  1. More strategic roles are beginning to emerge for facility managers to meet the challenges of today's brick-and-mortar spaces.
  2. Consumers appreciate the convenience of shopping online, but they don't feel like they're having an in-store experience.
  3. The use of technology will be essential to create a immersive 360 experience for consumers.
