Channel Management

Different retail formats, e-commerce, m-commerce and social networks have introduced a range of new channels to the market, changing the way customers interact with organizations and with each other.

 

The rapid introduction of new online and mobile channels, and the accompanying change in customer behaviours, warrants a new focus on channel management.
