At the same time margins are squeezed tighter and tighter.  Many companies feel the need to embark on a journey towards price optimization, but where does one start? In the session, we will offer you some simple recipes on how to make your first step towards creating more value for your customer and for your shareholders, and share with you, insightful examples of how our customers have successfully walked, ran and sprinted to profitable pricing.

Virtual Reality is not only entertaining; it creates intelligent retail space

As most content released for use with virtual reality headsets focuses on entertainment, you can be forgiven for thinking only dedicated gamers and the occasional advertiser are interested in the potential of virtual reality. However, this couldn’t be further from the truth. Behind the hype, many companies within commerce and industry have been working with virtual reality platforms for decades. Now, with the advent of the new generation headsets, such as the OCULUS RIFT, virtual reality technology is becoming mainstream and one sector that stands to benefit hugely is retail. In this presentation, Josef will share with delegates how Virtual Reality is being deployed now to test new store concepts, for new product introduction and as a platform for collaboration.
