“Thought Report” on E-Commerce and Retail Technologies

An Overview of Technology Solutions for E-Commerce and Physical Stores

Menlo Park, CA – January 27, 2021 – Menalto Advisors is pleased to announce its new “Thought Report” on the topic of “E-Commerce and Retail Technologies.” E-commerce had already become a fast-growing, multi-trillion-dollar sector prior to the pandemic. As a result of COVID, even more, consumers are ordering products online, further accelerating the e-commerce market. A key enabler for e-commerce has been a technology that makes it easier for retailers to build successful online businesses. This includes general e-commerce software platforms, as well as solutions for payment processing, marketing,
fulfillment, product information management, analytics, chatbots, and more. Additionally, physical store retailers are not standing still and are implementing a variety of technologies to better compete with pure online sellers. In general, there is a broad range of emerging technologies for both online and physical store retailers including image recognition, augmented reality, cashier-less checkouts, robotics, and autonomous delivery vehicles. As a result, we thought it was a good time for a Thought Report on e-commerce and retail technologies. The 200+ page report includes:

  • A discussion of the e-commerce technology and retail technology sectors
  • Highlights of a variety of subsectors including e-commerce platforms, payments, shipping, marketing, analytics, chatbots, image processing, AR/VR, robotics, cashier-less checkout, autonomous delivery vehicles, and many others
  • Overview of recent M&A transactions in the sector
  • Brief profiles of more than 140 private e-commerce/retail technology companies
