Retail Report 2022: the shape of ambition

Retail, hospitality, and food and beverage (F&B) sectors have witnessed another significant and surprising year. 

But if there's anything we've learned from the past few years, it's to expect the unexpected. Businesses must be prepared to let go of outdated assumptions and wholeheartedly embrace the insights and technologies driving success in our post-pandemic reality.

At KPMG, we believe unifying business is the next frontier for long-term success. By connecting backend systems and data insights with compelling customer experiences, businesses can engender growth, achieve greater efficiencies, and lower costs. Similarly, Adyen, a financial technology platform provider, has long championed unified commerce - the process of connecting payments across every channel where customers shop - for its ability to break down silos to deliver richer services and more agile operations. 

With 94 percent of businesses surveyed planning to invest further in their digital transformation,  this year’s Retail Report is a valuable tool for those deciding exactly where to focus their resources. This year’s report highlights the increasingly inextricable link between operational digitization, customer experience, and growth – and the pivotal role payments technology plays for any business serious about all three.
