The first step is usually the hardest. This admittedly rather blunt truism also applies to the digital business environment.

Customer demands on retailers are constantly evolving. Regardless of whether customers are looking for something new or want to buy a tried and tested product: it always has to be available as quickly and as effortlessly as possible.
