Retailigence (www.retailigence.com), the leading Online-to-Offline (O2O) Local Marketing and Commerce Platform company, today announced the availability of a new research whitepaper, “Why the Digital Shelf is Vital for Retailers and Brands”. The paper was authored by Dr. Phil Hendricks, Director immr and GigaOm Research Analyst.
Hendricks proposes the existence of an ecommerce ‘digital shelf’, the ‘third-party’ digital and mobile partners who are part of the brand/retailer ecosystem of website and mobile apps used by shoppers to access information when shopping. The Digital Shelf achieves two important goals for brands and retailers: it extends their reach well beyond existing physical and digital properties, and it offers consumers a compelling combination of mobile and digital shopping experiences with convenient, local fulfillment.
