We have a saying here at 'wichcraft: Make people happy while being proud of what you do.
We're in the retail food business. Our job is to feed our customers, and our customers are at the core of everything we do. As Director of Technology for a sandwich company spanning 15 locations and three states, it can be easy to forget this simple fact. It's all too easy to get caught up in the daily grind of maintaining servers and networks just so we can keep our business humming along.
When we made the jump to Office 365 earlier this year, we were able to take our existing on-premise servers and move them to the cloud. As a result, we eliminated layers of complexity, and I no longer needed to spend valuable time and resources administering legacy systems. This has allowed me to shift my focus toward new and exciting ways to better serve our guests, like launching a new loyalty platform and implementing tools to help us engage customers through social media.

To adapt, retailers must deliver a modern sales and customer service experience that is personal, seamless and differentiated. And, they must operate with the utmost efficiency.
