At RetailNOW 2019, VARs and ISVs Choose Disruption Over Stagnation

In the debut episode of “The Trusted Advisor,” the RSPA’s Jim Roddy shares insights and highlights from RetailNOW 2019. “At the show, there was a general attitude of executives saying, ‘I’m not exactly sure what 2020 is going to look like for me, but I’m not standing still.’ Instead of just battening down the hatches and bracing for change, many RetailNOW attendees told me they’re disrupting themselves.”
