It’s no secret that retailers desperately need to innovate in order to survive and prosper in a challenging marketplace. The answer, however, has remained elusive for many brick-and-mortar and ecommerce merchants.

Neglecting the integration component needed to run a successful omnichannel retail business is a sure way to lag behind.
