We had a hugely successful Retail Hive Live 2018 at 30 Euston Square, London which focused on all aspects of Retail Fulfilment; from Prof. Jeremy Wyatt talking about how robotics and AI can help the industry at all levels, to our Chairman Ian Howes, Supply Development & Imports Director at Sainsbury’s Argos discussing the need for a ‘supply chain rebrand’ to attract new tech-savvy talent.
Ian also urged retailers to continue to connect with customers, despite the fact that nearly all aspects of fulfilment are highly digitised, saying “the human touch is just as important as technology – we still want to talk to and connect with our customers along their journey. Technology shouldn’t take away from this; it should enhance it.”
Below are just some of the takeaways from our Retail Hive members which are featured in our post-meeting report available to download.
A huge thanks to our valuable partners and to all our Retail Hive members for their candid contributions and unwavering energy.
We look forward to seeing many of our members at our next Retail Hive Live in London, Collboration for Innovation on 25th September 2018.
