How digital services can revitalise the high street.

Atos commissioned independent research to understand how consumers feel about the digital services offered to them currently and what they would like to see from them in the future.

45.8% of respondents would rate their digital experiences with traditional retail as ‘good’ or ‘outstanding’. Compare this to 69.1% of people who feel the same about online retail – how can traditional retail close the gap?

It seems that traditional retail needs streamlining, as 43% want a simpler, cleaner experience from the digital services provided by traditional retail.
