    The paper identifies several strategies that forward-thinking retailers are using to get the most advantage from mobile technology. Recommendations include:

    • Give Clear Ownership — A single executive, tasked with managing and improving the overall customer experience, is vital to pushing mobile programs forward.
    • Make Price Transparency a Priority — Price transparency is real, thanks to Amazon's Price Check and eBay's RedLaser applications; retailers need to embrace the capability.
    • Better Understand a Consumer's Path to Purchase — A consumer's path to purchase often begins outside the store and may traverse several "channels.". Retailers must intersect with consumers at the right moment with the right offers.
    • Connectivity Is a Must — Without some sort of connectivity in the store, retailers can't hope to enhance the store experience with mobile. Employees must have Wi-Fi access to be at least as informed as the consumer.

    Until a little more than a decade ago, merchandisers only had to deal with physical stores and websites. Then came the shift to online sales and more recently the buzz from mobile and social channels. The proliferation of channels is driven by customers who demand a seamless shopping experience. The impact from these customers is a major disruption in the way merchandisers work – and drives home the point that they need upgraded tools and interactive marketing strategies to compete.

On the contrary, the largest Canadian online retailers are growing faster than their U.S. counterparts, in large part by selling aggressively to U.S. consumers while benefiting from less intense online competition for the business of Canadian consumers.

    Australian flash-sale retailer OZSALE took heed when competitors organized a "Click Frenzy" one-day sale in November 2012, only to see their sites fail under the weight of heavy traffic. So OZSALE did its homework before promoting its own "Flash Frenzy sale."

    Testing beforehand identified problems that were making the OZSALE site unstable at traffic levels well below what the retailer expected to attract in its big sale. Those insights enabled OZSALE to fix flaws in advance of the promotion. The results speak for themselves:

    During "Flash Frenzy," OZSALE.com.au achieved four times the amount of traffic over its closest flash sale competitors.

    Highlights include:

    - Revenue hit more than $5 million
    - As predicted, more than 50% of sales revenue came in via mobile
    - 80,000 new members pre-registered prior to the event
    - 160% increase in new visitors
    - 160% increase in page views and 80% increase in unique browsers

    Product data must be accurate and uniform today, as consumers research and shop in so many ways. A shopper who sees a product advertised for $399 on a comparison shopping site won’t be happy to click through to the retailer’s site to find the item priced at $499. Keeping data accurate and consistent is increasingly important as retailers sell through many channels, including bricks-and-mortar stores, web sites, call centers, mobile sites and apps and online marketplaces.

    The seventh annual retail pricing survey by Retail Systems Research (RSR) is one of the most anticipated benchmarks of the year. It is an opportunity for retailers to get answers to their most challenging pricing questions and measure themselves against hundreds of other retailers who participated.

    So why would RSR use the term “tough love” in the title of its 2013 pricing report? Because the data tells us that while some retailers continue to succeed with aggressive price-based promotions, others are failing miserably. As retailers become less dependent on store traffic, and focus more on promotions across multiple channels, expectations about improving margins and top-line sales are shifting. Those retailers without the integrated technology to analyze their past history, respond quickly to competitors, and forecast the impact of pricing decisions will be seriously constrained.
