Three key questions
To explore these questions, IGD has interviewed global heads of ecommerce at grocery manufacturers and some of the world’s leading online retailers.
We also conducted an industry survey to test our vision and understand levels of preparation. We had 223 respondents from 42 different markets, from senior roles, including CEOs, vice presidents and directors.
We’ve drawn on the knowledge of IGD’s global team of experts in online shopper insight, online, technology and supply chain.
The online store of the future will contain five key features:
It will be a shopper’s personal micro store with individualised and online exclusive products, personalised promotions, recommendations, advertising and loyalty schemes.
It will act as a smart personal assistant, connecting with various devices, preventing shoppers from running out of products and supporting their lifestyle goals.
It will be more efficient for shoppers, easier and quicker to order products.
It will help give shoppers a frictionless combined offline and online shopping experience.
It will at times be invisible, with shoppers buying products from shoppable digital content. In the future, people can be shopping at any time.
