Take The Survey That Matters
By Erin Harris, associate editor
Each year, Integrated Solutions For Retailers conducts a survey of retailers to determine where they are concentrating their technology budgets presently and into the near future. This data, combined with expert opinion and analysis, is presented in our annual December Retail Tech Spending issue. This year’s report will provide detailed analysis that examines the best and worst investments of 2012 and fresh insight into retailers’ investment plans for 2013. The issue will also include analyst commentary from our friends at Retail Systems Research (RSR). Best-of-breed retailers including Build-A-Bear Workshop and Cabela’s will participate in detailed Q&As that highlight their thoughts on the results of the survey.
We need your help to make the survey a success. Our annual report provides a unique look into the state of the industry, and your feedback is crucial. Your answers will be held in complete confidentiality, and no individuals, retailers, or retail brands will be specified in the report. Only cumulative survey results and anonymous anecdotes will be published. We want to know about your successes and your challenges, and we want to know which in-store systems software & systems, in-store hardware, loss prevention, supply chain & logistics, marketing & operations, and omni-channel retailing solutions you’re considering for 2013.
As a retailer, you are eligible to participate in this 10-minute survey and have a shot to win 1 of 3 $100 Visa gift cards that will be drawn once the survey results are tallied. The survey is live now, and is only running for a limited time, so be sure to complete the survey and enter for your chance at one of the $100 Visa gift cards.
