Exhibitor Big Ideas - Utilising AI to create engaged frontline employees & an unparalleled customer experience

Store employees are the face of retail organisations, directly influencing the customer experience (CX). These same workers are often one of the largest cost centers at a company, meaning their employee experience (EX) is vital to unlocking additional productivity and efficiency. Combine the two, and the impact frontline employees have on both the top and bottom line is significant.  

But what would it mean to your organisation if you could achieve your employee experience goals and increase the ROI of your customer experience investment simultaneously?  

Join WorkJam, the world’s first digital frontline workplace, and Qualtrics, the leader and creator of the experience management category, as they share strategies to utilise the power of AI to bridge the gap between CX and EX to turn real-time employee and customer insights into direct action. The result? A more engaged and productive workforce, increased customer satisfaction, and a better top and bottom line.

Exhibitor Big Ideas - Global Market Strategies: Digital, Cost, Risk, Resilience

It’s easy to take the handbrake off your growth targets and expand into new territories worry-free, right? Launching into international markets is exciting, but hurdles like customs delays, fines and penalties, and unhappy customers remain and can deter retailers of all sizes. However, if businesses can get their tech stack and tax compliance right, they’ll be able to overcome these obstacles in new markets and thrive.

Join Sacha Wilson, Senior Director of International at Avalara, as he delves into the pivotal role of tech and tax compliance in surmounting challenges for retailers venturing into global markets. Discover how leveraging tax strategies and the right tech stack can enhance resilience and ensure success amidst the complexities of international commerce and a tough economic environment.

Tax compliance can be complex. It can be boring, and it can be stressful — but, what you’ll learn from this session, is that it can’t be ignored.
