Frost & Sullivan Program Manager Archana Amarnath: "Large scale access to connected devices, social media and digital checkpoints is driving the adoption of hybrid business models. The 'Virtual Store' is an excellent example of emerging retail technologies such as Augmented Reality and QR Coding being leveraged and integrated to offer a unique, convenient and innovative shopping experience. In fact, Tesco's online retail sales in Korea increased by nearly 130 percent with the introduction of Tesco's Subway Virtual Store."
Frost & Sullivan Senior Research Analyst Archana Vidyasekar: "Social media will outgrow its position as an advertising platform to become more of a marketplace, as more retailers offer products for sale on the social platforms. We are already seeing small business thrive on Facebook."
