Could data be the silver bullet retailers need to survive 2021?

Once upon a time, the January sales period would have seen Malaysian shoppers hit the high street in droves to bag a bargain post-Christmas. Unfortunately, this year, the mass migration online as well as stricter local restrictions under our new three-tier system have left many high street retailers contemplating closure unless a solution can be found. 

Of course, there is one ally that many have overlooked that could help retailers navigate this tough terrain. That really is data. Of course, data is not a new concept for the retail industry. However, until now, most have failed to take full advantage of the data that lives across their online and offline estate.
