Jacques Vert Group Plc, Maple Lake and Retail Assist shortlisted for ‘Project Implementation of the Year’ award
A project team comprised of retailer the Jacques Vert Group Plc and suppliers Maple Lake and Retail Assist has been shortlisted in the ‘Project Implementation of the Year’ category at the forthcoming Retail Week Technology Awards.
The project was driven by the requirement of the Jacques Vert Group Plc; comprised of the Jacques Vert, Planet, Precis and Windsmoor brands, to implement a supply chain solution central to their multichannel growth strategy.
John Bovill, Jacques Vert Group Commercial Director observes: “The connectedness of consumers to media and technology has resulted in the need for instant availability of product. It was critical for us to gain clear stock management in order to react and plan better and faster.”
Following a tender process, Retail Assist’s supply chain system Merret and Maple Lake’s QuickAssortment merchandise and assortment planning software were selected, making the Jacques Vert Group the first retailer to market with the integrated solution.
Nigel Illingworth, Retail Assist Chief Executive Officer of Merret comments: “Whilst many retailers have had multiple selling channels for some time, the expectations of consumers are rising with regards to the functionality of these. Retail Assist was therefore excited to be involved in this project which involved a base of systems born for the multichannel age, rather than modifying traditional single channel supply chain solutions to enable business development.”
The winners of ‘Project Implementation of the Year’ and the other categories will be announced on the evening of Tuesday 19th June. The ceremony is being held at the Lancaster London, Lancaster Terrace.
