Retailers and brands are embracing digital transformation to thrive in today’s competitive environment. Microsoft solutions and an intelligent platform enable retailers to combine the best of digital and in-store to deliver personal, seamless, and differentiated customer experiences.

Personalization can be delivered through location-aware mobile devices, targeted email marketing, and personalized online shopping. Microsoft offers solutions to collect and understand customer behaviors and respond with offers and experiences that are personal, engaging, and relevant.
Engage employees with role-optimized solutions that empower them to provide outstanding service and collaborate with ease. Providing the right information for all job functions helps increase employee engagement and allows retailers to deliver differentiated and personalized customer service. Microsoft offers familiar productivity, collaboration, and social solutions that engage and empower your people.
Deliver an intelligent platform that enables data-driven business innovation on a trusted, highly secure, and global foundation. Through an aggregate understanding of shopping and market insights combined with external data, retailers can improve forecasting and optimize their merchandising and supply chains. Microsoft provides end-to-end business processes that optimize cloud scale, industry-leading security, and manageability. These intelligent solutions enable real-time connections across a wide range of innovative devices uniquely suited to every need in the retail environment.
Manage a pipeline of ideas and align them with strategic priorities to bring new and innovative products and services to market rapidly and effectively. To succeed in a competitive environment, retailers and brands must continually deliver new products and services, improve processes, and find new ways to deliver value to customers.
