As consumer technology brings new conveniences, retailers and brands are finding they have to work harder to stay on top of emerging innovations. Those attending the recent CES event in Las Vegas found a gold mine of self-service products designed to help retailers and brands stay relevant as e-commerce continues to grab more of the retail market.
Self-serve kiosks, along with smartphones and tablets, have emerged as a solution for brands that have recognized the need to have both a physical and online presence. Where many brick-and-mortar retailers are looking to expand their e-commerce capabilities, e-commerce retailers are discovering the need for a physical presence.
