Happy Birthday To Us!
Yesterday we became 14, and will be celebrating entering our 15th year of trading as ‘Retail Assist’ over the next few months. We are proud and honoured to begin this pivotal year as ‘Company of the Year,’ having recently been awarded with the title at the Nottingham Post Business Awards.
Retail Assist was founded in 1999 to “bridge the gap between the capabilities of retailers’ in-house IT departments and the services traditionally offered by IT systems providers, based on a unique combination of technical ability and retail understanding, founded from front-line retail experience.” Having begun as a small operation the business has grown substantially, now employing 180 people compared to 15 in our first year.
Having won numerous awards over the years, we currently hold the title ‘Company of the Year,’ and have previously been awarded honours such as ‘Project Implementation of the Year’ at the Retail Week Technology Awards, and ‘Best Use of E-Commerce in a Retail Environment’ at the European Retail Solutions Awards.

We are also very proud to mention the very successful retailers we support both in the UK and internationally, including Harvey Nichols, Selfridges, ASOS, Morrisons, Whistles, Coast, Warehouse, Karen Millen, Oasis, Mint Velvet and Hobbycraft amongst many more leading brands.
We are proud to say Retail Assist has gone from strength to strength, with team members both old and new working together to make the business a success. We are pleased to say that our team work as friends as well as colleagues, and many have been around for the full 14 years.
We wanted to take the opportunity to mark this occasion by saying thank you to everyone that has ever contributed to the Retail Assist journey – from staff members, to partners and to clients, we couldn’t have done this without the people that made it possible.
Here’s to many more years!
