Marketplaces in transition

The technological change of the 21st century is largely shaped by a digital upheaval. Those who do not digitize have no future.

The sale of products and services has left the classic point of sale and takes place on a wide variety of channels. Whether in the automotive industry, in travel and traffic, in cities or in the financial sector, new types of ecosystems are emerging everywhere. Digital platforms are used, data is generated and analyzed in real time. Mobile access to customers is emerging and proven business processes have to be completely rethought. This applies to the initial contact as well as purchase impulses and product selection as well as the purchase process and after sales service.

In the competition for mobile customers, digital platforms enable new formats for customer approach and customer experience. Transaction-related revenues based on success-oriented accounting methods are becoming an important source of revenue. The customer has the opportunity to publish opinions, experience and knowledge as user-generated content. It itself has an effect on the market and can create or destroy trust. He becomes a brand ambassador on the internet. Conversely, the customer's trust in the retailer and the protection of sensitive customer data are the most important assets.
