"The pressure on retailers to provide a seamless, responsive and personalised service that will protect, nurture and develop the experience of customers is immense. So too are the commercial opportunities that exist for those retailers who get it right across increasingly diverse channels. The report's findings are certainly thought-provoking and show that as lessons continue to be learned, new technologies are embraced and customer expectations continue to rise, so new customer experience benchmarks are being created."
