Fueled by smart technologies, computing devices, mobile devices, and 24/7 connectivity, the way consumers browse, shop, and pay is moving toward a digital means. Leading restaurants and consumer retail businesses are being re-imagined as they leverage digital, social and mobile to transform customers’ experiences. By reimagining their business strategies beyond channels and campaigns, companies are redefining customer engagement, boosting loyalty, and creating advocates for their businesses.

Consider these amazing points why consumers are digital first:

  • 88% perform some research online before making a purchasing decision
  • 51% mobile users have discovered a new company or product while conducting a search
  • 28% of searches for something nearby result in a purchase
  • 23% who performed searches spoke with friends or family about it

Challenge: The average consumer uses 10 channels (e.g. mobile app, web, text messaging, social media, etc.) to communicate with companies. As an anchor of customer experience, digital is driving outcomes and influencing purchasing.
