How live inventory is crucial to Buy Online, Pick-Up in Store (BOPIS)

BOPIS (buy online, pick-up in store) or click-and-collect shopping has been growing in popularity in recent years.

However, the COVID-19 pandemic has turbocharged adoption. According to a May 2020 report by McKinsey, the use of BOPIS grew 28% year-on-year in February.
