What is the most encouraging thing you see for the future of the retail IT industry?
There are a lot of areas to be excited about. Fraud is down in retail – security is a top priority for payment technology companies. Some gas stations are still struggling, but we are getting there in the petroleum industry. Upgrading to support EMV will continue to be important for the ones left. Also, retail owners have so many options and ways to run their business. It is more convenient than ever before and that will only continue. Backend software options are less expensive and provide the tools to track trends and easily manage a store.
