This is a handbook for planning, implementing, operating and enhancing that response. Packed with statistics, case-studies and examples, The Multichannel Retail Handbook is above all a practical guide. It provides useable tools and decision-frameworks. It offers actionable advice and recommendations. It takes the retailer to from "why-what-how" through to "when." The 2016 Edition has been fully revised and updated to reflect the changes that have taken place in this rapid-moving sector since the original edition was published.
