Data validation for ecommerce checkouts

More people are shopping online then ever, with the underlying shift to digital rapidly accelerated by the pandemic. This massive volume increase simply increases the demands on ecommerce teams. Your checkout is a key area where fixing issues and delivering the best possible user experience will directly contribute to conversion and revenue.

For our 96th episode, James was joined by Matt Furneaux, Global Commercial Director at Loqate, a GBG solution. Loqate is a global solution specialist, providing a range of technology services to ecommerce teams to improve data capture and validation in the checkout.
