Location, information, assortment, delivery, and ambience are important distribution services which represent essential outputs of the retail establishments, and are considerably impacted by the technological change, the evolution of retailing on the Romanian market, where were observed the highest increases in total retail trade among EU Member States, also confirming this considerable impact. Consumers are expecting personalization, retail personalization is transformed including with the help of the artificial intelligence, and there is a real retail marketers opportunity to drive increased levels of personalization thanks to improved tracking and attribution technologies across all the channels. Both retailers and CPG companies are being forced to leverage mobile technology to communicate with their targets throughout the customer journey, enhancing the overall customer experience, and CPG companies are committing to Omni channel retail as one of the identified imperatives.
