Local relationships. National experience.

We understand the unique corporate challenges in today’s fast-moving and unpredictable market. Companies are working to blur the line between online and brick-and-mortar business. The dramatic rise in pick-up service, for example, is driving the need for brands to evaluate their current site needs to ensure the best on-site experience for customers choosing a hybrid solution of ordering online and picking up at a physical store location.

We work closely with our retail partners to deliver an omnichannel experience to consumers. When you choose CEI, we will provide a customized project-delivery system with practical, proactive solutions that help you achieve your top-line goals without impacting your bottom line.
