Next day delivery has been followed by Amazon’s one hour delivery service and now the talk is of drones delivering goods within 30 minutes or less. Companies are investing huge sums of money into customers buying habits and better analytics. Where will it end?

BusinessCloud has joined pro-manchester to look at how technology continues to change the face of retail and what  we can expect next in the world of retail.
