– Brian Kinsella, Vice President of Order Management – Manhattan Associates

That means pre-shopping can happen in extremely social contexts – on Facebook, around the water cooler, or through online review sites. Consumers are already sourcing information in multiple ways – retailers need to ensure they are present where consumers are looking.
