Many businesses still follow this traditional approach but unfortunately are on borrowed time.
There is a significant change on the way we do business today. One only has to take a look at our daily lives.
No longer do we use cash; everything is done by card or number. No longer do we go down the street to our local travel agent to book our holiday; no longer do we go to the high street to do our grocery shopping. Think about how we have done our Christmas shopping this year.
