Last Friday, I went to Globe Business’ event called Retail Revolution. It was a 1-day activity held at SM Lanang Premier here in Davao. Davao. It featured an actual pop-up store showcasing the digital solutions of Globe Business for micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) in the retail industry. It aims to inspire businesses to revolutionize their retail game and experience the future of retail stores today.
At Globe Business, they envision tech-enabled businesses as the future of retail, and commit to be a trusted and reliable partner of Wholesale/Retail MSMEs in their digital transformation journey.
The event aimed to highlight the concept of Connected Retail, which focuses on integrating consumers’ online and offline experience: whether your business has a physical or online store, your end-consumers will be able to seamlessly transact with your business. Moreover, it targets to effortlessly connect businesses with customers by providing a seamless shopping experience, using customized marketing and an improved supply chain process, providing payment options, and giving employees the tools to work together better.
