As important to sales organizations as retail execution has become, there is still confusion in the market about what it encompasses and the value technology can provide in improving efficiencies.

But industry leaders recognize that retail execution processes and supporting technologies lead to improved store performance and increased sales. This month’s Straight Talk will help you navigate through the misconceptions.
