Summary

When will you see ROI?

From the team you build to the materials you use, return on investment matters. The technology your business relies upon is no exception. But return on investment isn’t just about revenue growth. It’s time saved, technical debt eroded, increased speed and less staff churn in the technical teams.

Retail and eCommerce technology is in flux from the older, limiting platforms to new flexible tech stacks. You admire the early adopter’s results and you’re positive that it’s the right journey to start, but your senior decision makers aren’t convinced. They want to know when the investment will yield a return and how much it will pay.

With investment comes risk, but it can also offer rewards that would be otherwise impossible to achieve. You have the opportunity to successfully implement a flexible technology stack, offering improved operations and exceptional growth. Is 2023 the year you press play on MACH?

Whilst we can’t offer certainty of when your investment will pay, we can give you access to the experiences of your peers who have successfully adopted MACH, and have achieved great return on investment despite the risks.

Join us for dinner this April, where you’ll be able to listen to the first hand experiences of business leaders like yourself who have made the investment. Leave feeling clearer about the journey of MACH, and with an understanding of the possible return on investment, the time it took other brands and the challenges that they overcame.
