Redesigning Retail Store Operations РCOVID-19 as Catalyst to Drive Best Practices at the Front Line

Cisco Investments recently invited three experts in the field of retail operations for a panel discussion to explore how the industry has responded to the COVID-19 pandemic and what operational changes must still be made to position themselves for success in a post-pandemic retail environment. The Panel consisted of Chris Todd, President and CEO at Theatro; Joe Skorupa, Editorial Director at RIS News; Amit Chetal, Retail Lead, Americas Industry Organization at Cisco; and hosted by Bill Farnsworth, Global Retail Business Manager at Cisco. When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, its effects on the retail industry were swift, seismic and brutal in its disruption to small and large retail operations alike. Retailers now find themselves at a critical junction where high-stakes decisions made today about customer engagement models, communications with frontline workers and evolving business models will set the table for success or struggle when the new normal arrives.
