From Raw Data To Revenue:
How Brazil Is Making Retail Disruption
As society changes and technology democratizes access to the web, digital consumption is already present in consumers’ lives. Brazil has seen a large increase in smartphone, mobile broadband and internet penetration, especially in poorer regions, thus transforming how locals interact with others and with businesses.
Technology has changed Brazil and has revolutionized how businesses operate locally. The last 3 years have brought great changes for retailing, with technology being its main propeller.
Whether its grocery retailers or electronics and appliance specialist retailers, all players within retailing can agree on the growing importance of a cross-channel cross-border strategy. Napp Solutions is bringing this to the retail market in Brazil and Latin America, their operations have already reached the US and Canada, and they are coming to the mecca of retail innovation to understand what can they learn from China and bring it back to Brazil.
