Engaging Modern Retailers through Enterprise Social

To enable vital connections and collaboration, retailers are needing to provide integrated tools that are social, easy to use, and can connect employees, partners, and systems across the organization to solve business challenges. Microsoft is helping Retailers by enabling teams (employees AND partners) to connect, learn from one another, share information, and create value together. Join us to hear how Retailers have been innovating quickly and approaching the Social journey.
