“Everything is for sale on the internet.” Phil Johnston, the director/co-writer of the Oscar nominated Ralph Breaks the Internet, isn’t holding back. “From the pop-ups to the videos you watch, commerce is a part of… everything.”

The monetization of the web and its contrasting effects on two childlike video-game characters, best friends Ralph and Vanellope.

We’ve all been there.

These companies set new standards for customer experience, quality, functionality, and service, and incumbents must skillfully manage their business and customers in order to compete.
