Your Inside Track For Demandware Xchange 2016

It’s that time again, the North American Demandware Xchange is only 2 weeks away and we’ve got the inside scoop to help you make the most of your time at the conference. Here are the big themes you can expect at this year’s show, and the presentations you won’t want to miss.

Unified Commerce

We all know that the customer journey is more complex than ever before. This is a result of how mobile has changed our shopping behavior – creating hundreds of short, fleeting, intent-driven moments. An overarching theme at this year’s Xchange will be how to make sense of this fragmented journey with the principle of unified commerce.

Demandware CEO Tom Ebling, will be speaking to the benefits of unified commerce and how it enables retailers to deliver a consistent experience across all shopping touchpoints.

Retail Apps

We heard from several retailers at eTail West that apps are becoming a powerful tool for marketers. Apps are best for driving engagement with your most loyal customer-base, they have also become a good source for customer data and insights.
