The retail sector in Latin America is on the up, rising employment and consumer confidence has boosted the retail sector since hitting a rough patch due to the economic crisis of recent years. The growth in sales has led to aggressive 2012 expansion plans for both Latin retailers and the larger multi-nationals.
At a time when retailers globally are beginning to experience an upturn in the economy and results have been strong, the retail industry is reacting by reshaping their technology strategies. Operating in a cut-throat environment the investment decisions of leading CIOs in retail are vital to improving customer service and increasing those all important margins for their organisations whilst driving multichannel development.
Analysts estimate the retail industry will spend $190.3 billion in 2012 on IT, with technology investment priorities focused on the business areas of IT/Data Architecture, Multi-Channel Retailing, and Customer Experience Management
The NG Retail Summit LA will bring together IT decision makers from across the Latin American Retail sector to meet with solution providers who are actively looking to target this exciting growth market.
