While in-store pickup, curbside and delivery were already growing rapidly, pandemic restrictions forced companies to accelerate adoption. Getting a solution in place took precedence over a well-defined strategy. Even plans that were in place pre-COVID have likely yielded unintended consequences.
Although these services are just another way to serve customers, the impact and risk to your business is significant. As each of these options continue to grow, Impact 21 is working with retailers and restaurants to close the technological, operational, and communication gaps to drive a seamless customer experience.
