Howdy folks,
The latest news on retail tech and ecommerce this week.
I had the pleasure of attending Retail R(E)volution 2018 last week in Orlando! This year the focus was the post-purchase experience for startups, subscription box companies, and enterprise brands. 
High growth and enterprise companies such as Rue La La, Google, Heritage Brands, Channel Advisor, Deloitte Consulting, Rockets of Awesome, Pitney Bowes, Deckers Brands, The Hut Group and more shared invaluable ecommerce insights.
