Technology is no longer a facet of retail, it is a fact of retail as our core consumer embraces the digital lifestyle. What remains at issue is how we can hope to keep up with the pace of change that is now dictated by consumer adoption and where every retailer strives to be “convenient”. NACS and Conexxus have embarked on a project to design and curate a technology roadmap – essential and prospective technologies the high-performing retailer should include in their strategy. This road map will provide an annual picture of what relevant technologies will achieve reality, by when, in order to provide clarity to support systems strategy. This road map is a compilation of research outside the industry, and specifically designed to “see” 10 years ahead to suggest technology and cultural evolutions to prepare our industry for the new landscape. ​​​
