    How To Fight The Rise Of Friendly Fraud

    We’re now past the two-year anniversary of EMV, and there is one clear truth: EMV has significantly cut into card-present fraud. But that doesn’t mean that all fraud is gone yet. And recent trends indicate that one type in particular may be on the rise: friendly fraud.

    How To Boost Business Sustainability In The Changing Retail Landscape

    We’re approaching the end of 2017, and one of the most dominant stories of the year has been what many media outlets call “the retail apocalypse.” What is the retail apocalypse? In short, it’s the idea that retailers can’t compete as online commerce (or, mostly just Amazon) continues to grow.

    Don’t Fall Victim To Peak Distress

    What worked in the past may not be right today or even ten minutes from now. Small to mid-sized retailers often don’t have the flex or resources to react to the hills and valleys of peak season. But the $1.75 trillion ghost economy (cost of overstocks, out-of-stocks and returns) is clear proof that every retailer needs to be prepared to pivot in real-time, especially during the holidays.

    Strong Fulfillment Operations Critical To Deliver Competitive Retail Experience

    Shoppers expect the products they want to be available through every channel and device from which they choose to shop. They want options to buy online and have it shipped, buy in store, buy online, and pick up in-store, and even want items to ship from a store if they’re not available in the warehouse. Regardless of where and how, they expect their orders to be delivered fast!

  • What You Need To Know About The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
    What You Need To Know About The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

    The General Data Protection Regulation, or the GDPR, is the European Union’s new regulation on data and cyber-security that will become law in the EU on May 25, 2018. The GDPR will apply to anyone doing business in the EU that handles personal data — it doesn’t matter whether you’re based in the EU or not. If your company processes, stores or transmits personal data belonging to EU residents, you’ll have to comply as well as show evidence you want to comply. The GDPR Advisory Board took time to answer questions about training your workforce with the latest legal requirements, working to manage your data in a compliant way, and other ways to become legally compliant before the May deadline.
