My thought of the day:
What does POS stand for? Point of Sale? Or piece of sh*t?
I’m by no means the first person to think this. But however antiquated the online, virtual, world is flat, facebook, open social, iphone world may think offline business is, just think that only 7% of retail sales occurs online. The rest is good old fashioned retail business.
Maybe the better question is: does anyone care?
Not right now, probably not ten years from now. But once all this disparate data gets pulled together in some effective manner, that’s the most valuable collation of data ever created, simultaneously built and existing at the one place where purchase intent is clear… the physical storefront.
