3 Roadblocks To Retail's 'As a Service' Transition
By Mike Monocello, editor in chief, Business Solutions magazine.
While assembling the editorial for our Partner Program Insider (built into this issue), we performed an outreach for thought leadership where we asked industry experts to weigh in on the biggest topics for key verticals. When it came to retail, a common theme referenced was the “as a Service” business model. Not surprising, really.
Since RSPA INSPIRE, I can’t tell you how many meetings and calls I’ve been on to discuss this topic. After speaking with various readers, vendors, and coworkers, I’ve noticed some trends worth sharing that are probably blocking or at least hindering the retail industry’s transition to the “as a Service” model.
