How innovative technologies can help retailers mitigate the impact of Brexit

Its’ no secret that retailers in the UK are facing challenging times ahead, with the decline of the high street, the rise of ecommerce and an uncertain political landscape. For British retailers, Brexit presents a number of challenges, whether the UK leaves with or without a deal. The loss of frictionless trade, combined with a possible decrease in consumer demand, means that retailers will have to differentiate more than ever before to improve their customer’s experience and remain competitive. Dalia Lasaite, Co-Founder and CEO CGTrader, a leading provider of 3D Visualization and Augmented Reality solutions for eCommerce, explores some of these challenges and explains how implementing innovative technologies can help retailers boost consumer engagement, reduce overhead and drive profitability, which will be even more essential after Britain’s exit from the EU.
