Provoke Insights’ most recent wave of in-house research was fielded in March 2022, taking a deep dive into over 15 industries, including retail technology. By better understanding how consumers feel about innovative technology, including QR codes, tap-to-pay, mobile apps, and smart vending machines, hospitality/retail brands can better tailor to the customer experience.
The standout findings include:
