Shoptimization

Innovative tools and apps helping shoppers maximize benefits and discounts

Implications - With so many choices available in today's marketplace, shoppers are beginning to realize that paying full price isn't always necessary and that with fierce competition among retailers, there is always some reward or discount from which a shopper can benefit. Thus, a slew of tools and apps helping shoppers get the most out of their shopping experience -- whether it be through sale notifications or helping consumers optimize rewards -- have been hitting the marketplace. Not only will they influence the way people shop, but these shopping aids also stand to impact future retail strategy and promotion.
