Aurora Fashions and Retail Assist Shortlisted for Retail Systems Award
The Aurora Fashions and Karen Millen IT department; which has been fully outsourced to Retail Assist since February 2011, has been shortlisted in the ‘IT Team of the Year’ category at the forthcoming Retail Systems Awards.
The nomination comes hot on the heels of an impressive 80+ projects delivered by the IT team over the past year alone. Many of the projects focused on underpinning the Group’s platforms to enable an omni-channel approach; and seamless customer experience regardless of the channel the customer chooses to shop.
Richard Glanville, CFO at Aurora Fashions comments: “We’re thrilled to be on the shortlist as the innovation and hard work of our IT team has been pivotal to the success of our achievements to date. With the ever increasing speed of new initiatives in the retail world, their support and technical expertise has been invaluable to help keep us ahead of the game.”
Alan Morris, Executive Chairman at Retail Assist adds: “We’re very pleased to have been shortlisted for this award with Aurora Fashions and Karen Millen, and look forward to working on future IT projects with them. Key areas of focus will include further omni-channel and international developments.”
The event, now into its seventh year, aims to recognise excellence and innovation in the field of information technology within the UK retail sector. The Awards have attracted a growing number of attendees year on year.
The winners of ‘IT Team of the Year’ and the other categories will be announced on the evening of Wednesday 24th October. The ceremony is being held at the Lancaster London, Lancaster Terrace.
