Digital is changing the luxury industry.
As digital increasingly influences behavior, the luxury customer’s successful shopping experience becomes a sophisticated path to purchase; where communication and commerce are inextricably interconnected.

The luxury customer is highly influenced by brand perception, has an affinity toward emotional decision-making and impulsive purchasing, and highly values the tactile experience.

The Accenture Interactive Boutique Solution leads with content management, enhancing the presentation, branding and experiential elements so important to luxury retail.
