From AI chatbots to cloud computing, I hardly need to tell you, small business owners, that technology is constantly changing how the retail industry operates - we’ve all become very familiar with self-checkouts, targeted advertising and next or same-day delivery, but cutting-edge tech often comes at a steep price and requires robust infrastructure…

Consumers, now more than ever, want to connect and relate to the brands and businesses that they buy from.
