The Opportunity

Retail is a gigantic industry that is constantly evolving. Right now, the pace of this evolution is faster than ever before. There will be 6 billion smartphone users by 2020. It’s highly possible that eCommerce will become a $10 trillion market in the next ten years.

1.1 billion users will own a wearable device by 2018 and a number of sensors and beacons are being deployed today. Technology advancement will allow you to build more personalized and interactive relationships with customers like never before.

Changing Demographics

Today’s retail is driven by the needs and preferences of two generations: baby boomers and millennials. These two groups are the heaviest tablet and smartphone users, demanding better, more seamless services.

Big Data

A number of large and small businesses already use big data and analytics to grow. Retailers need to rely on data to get to know their customers and provide customized shopping experiences.

Point of Sale Security & Payments

Apple Pay and other payment providers are changing the face of retail. And they all put fraud and security costs back on the retailer. Thus, securing the POS and all customer data from breaches remains a top challenge.


Localization of services is becoming more important than ever. Innovative merchants must customize their stores and merchandise according the needs of their local communities.


Technology makes it easy to shop from any brand. The points-for-purchases model is no longer effective. Forward-thinking retailers will find ways to make each customer’s experience unique and memorable.

Omnichannel Strategy

Big brands like Macy’s are already moving to omnichannel retailing. Mobile and online-to-offline services are delivering better results, which ultimately leads to a competitive advantage.

The Opportunity Ahead

Following trends is skating where the puck is. In today’s technology-driven world, retailers that are innovative and forward-thinking will win in the market.

The competition in retail is tougher than ever before, and customers now demand seamless and personalized experiences. The ones who deliver that will not only win the hearts of many customers but ultimately expand their business across the limitless channels technology has opened up.

  • There's not much humility in their vision: they say openly they want to do what Henry Ford did to cars, or what Rockefeller did for oil. They want Appster to be the ideas development hub of the world.

  • Only the best engineers: "Applying for a job at app-building company Appster, seems a little like applying for a high-security-clearance government job."
