Benchmark Reports

RSR’s benchmark reports are the backbone of our business. Survey-driven, but infused with the retail experience of our analysts, these studies focus on the issues retailers face today. Our proprietary BOOT methodology helps us contextualize external and internal business challenges, opportunities available and the technology enablers that support taking advantage of those opportunities.

Retail Winners Series

Much of the data gathered as part of our benchmark surveys doesn’t make it to the major report. Retail Winner reports use both published and unpublished benchmark data, supplemented with case studies to highlight how technology supports business growth and change in real life. As always, improvements in key performance indicator are used to highlight business value received.
