Real-time information gives smaller retailers the upper hand

In a world where bricks-and-mortar merchants often struggle to keep up with online retailers, immediate access to information can give a retailer a real competitive advantage. “Online retailers usually have much better access to information about their customers and their sales than we have,” says Vivien Bohme, founder and CEO of Bohme Inc., a Salt Lake City-based women’s clothing store chain. “In the bricks-and-mortar stores, gaining access to this important information is usually more cumbersome.” But gaining access to real-time information isn’t cumbersome at Bohme, which has 16 stores throughout the Midwest.

As ‘Unicorns’ Emerge, Utah Makes a Case for Tech Entrepreneurs

When Josh James traveled to the Bay Area in 2000, seeking funding for a web analytics company he had founded, he spoke at length with a venture capitalist about his plans for growth. The conversation was going well, Mr. James recently recalled, until the investor asked where he was based. “As soon as I told him I was from Utah, he literally, without saying a word, turned around and walked away.” Utah entrepreneurs no longer get that icy response.

Claim you listen to customers? Then do a live feedback session at your next enterprise event

Today, Host Analytics CEO Dave Kellogg sparked me to revisit this with his scorching Just Effing Demo – another reminder that our supposedly “customer-centric” processes are off the mark.
