London, UK, 17 September 2012 – Intershop will be presenting its newly launched Intershop E-Commerce Report 2012 at the 5th annual Retail Systems Multi-Channel Conference, on Thursday 20 September at the Hilton London Tower Bridge. Matt Ball, Head of Sales UK & Ireland at Intershop, will discuss the results of exclusive research into the state of the retail industry and the main challenges facing retailers today. Intershop is a Gold Sponsor of the event.
Almost all retailers operate in both online and offline environments, and in its 2012 E-Commerce Report Intershop investigates the challenges they face. During his session, Matt Ball will present the results of a pan-European survey, compiled from independent interviews with 310 senior IT and business decision makers at retailers in the UK, France, Germany, Nordics, Italy and Benelux. More than half of European retailers are confident of growth in their online operations in 2012, but the majority are struggling to operate an effective and consistent mobile strategy. Matt will suggest solutions for retailers to build their websites with support for multiple channels right at their heart.
The Retail Systems Multi-Channel Conference brings together key experts from the retail industry and will cover a vast range of subjects, including technology trends, multi-channel strategies, the rise of mobile, TV commerce and social media, personalization and internationalization.
