A team comprised of retailer the Jacques Vert Group Plc, with suppliers Maple Lake and Retail Assist were “highly commended” in the highly coveted ‘Investigo Project Implementation of the Year’ category at the 2012 Retail Week Technology Awards.
The judges were impressed that the Jacques Vert Group, which manages over a thousand outlets in the UK, Canada and Ireland, had reduced costs, minimised discounting and improved stock management after implementing new QuickAssortment merchandise planning software from Maple Lake and the Merret supply chain solution from Retail Assist.
John Bovill, Jacques Vert Group Commercial Director observes: “We’re delighted that our efforts have been recognised, since, as always, any success is a result of a very strong team and people. Our internal staff; in conjunction with external partners Retail Assist and Maple Lake have worked incredibly hard to deliver this project, and to date the transition has been seamless.”
This is the third consecutive year that Retail Assist has been recognised in the ‘Investigo Project Implementation’ category at the Retail Week Technology Awards. In 2011 fashion retailer Whistles with suppliers BT Expedite and Retail Assist were named the winners, and in 2010 new womenswear retailer Mint Velvet and Retail Assist scooped the award.
Alan Morris, Retail Assist Executive Chairman concludes: “We’re proud that Retail Assist is continuing to work with retailers such as Jacques Vert who are the forefront of omni-channel developments.”
