Digital wallets and other retail drivers in 2018

  Technology is helping define mainstream retail in 2018, when omnichannel retailing continues to be the buzzword. Donnie Tantoco, president of Rustan's Commercial Corp., defined omnichannel retail as "an in-store experience that is seamlessly connected to an online experience." "Nowadays, consumers are easily distracted," he explained. "Even while they are in our store, they may be browsing on another retailer's website. The challenge is to not just capture the consumers' attention in the store, but to connect it seamlessly with the interactions the consumers have made on their phones and other gadgets before, during and after they stepped into the physical store." ...Keep on reading: Digital wallets and other retail drivers in 2018.....»»

PSC and Cebu seal PNG hosting

Philippine Sports Commission (PSC) official Ramon Fernandez and Cebu City Mayor Tomas Osmeña officially formalized Cebu's hosting of the 2018 Philippine National Games through the signing of the Memorandum of Agreement at Cebu City Hall Thursday. Fernandez, who oversees the Visayas region, shared his excitement in the upcoming staging of the games and thanked the PSC for this major opportunity to lead the staging of one of the most-awaited sporting events in the country. “Everything is set. We consider the PNG as the country's Olympics, that is why we are excited that we get to do it here in Cebu,” said the Commissioner. Mayor Osmeña echoed this and bared that it had been a long time since the province hosted the event in 1997, and the province is very much excited for the affair.  The PNG will be co-hosted by the Province of Cebu and the City of Cebu. The competition, which is slated May 19 to 25, is set to feature 21 sporting events including athletics, boxing, chess, dancesport, swimming and other team sports.

Glue guys EJ Agbong, Jason Celis complete Letran’s retooling

Colegio de San Juan de Letran is now stepping outside the Walls of Intramuros to get new weapons for its arsenal. Chiang Kai Shek standouts EJ Agbong and Jason Celis are set to be the newest Knights, providing much more firepower for a crew that is nothing but ready to do battle in the looming NCAA 94 Men’s Basketball Tournament. The two players were key cogs in the Blue Dragons’ championship run in the 2018 Metro Manila Basketball League. There, alongside John Galinato, they bested powerhouse San Beda High School. Agbong is a 6-foot-2 forward who is the ultimate glue guy, doing whatever it is his team needs from him. He has also proven to be a terrific leader, never failing to vocal with his troops. Meanwhile, Celis is a 5-foot-9 guard who is more known for his scoring, but is also more than capable of doing the little things. Both of them will be given much-needed time to grow with the former backing up Bong Quinto and the latter backing up JP Calvo. Looking at the big picture, Agbong and Celis’ commitment is a welcome sign for Letran, a school which has traditionally not recruited talents fresh out of high school unless they come from its Juniors program. The Knights’ most recent prized prospects from high school were all once Squires – from Mark Cruz to Rey Nambatac and from Quinto to Jerrick Balanza. Now with the San Miguel Corporation behind their backs, though, change has seemingly come. Aside from solid recruits in Agbong and Celis, also already in Intramuros are talented transferees Bonbon Batiller, Christian Fajarito, Larry Muyang, and Fran Yu. They will round out a raring and ready core of Quinto, Balanza, Jeo Ambohot, and JP Calvo. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»
