Merret launched at NRF Show in New York with new US partner, Software Paradigms International (SPI)
Retail-only solutions and service provider, Retail Assist, chose the recent National Retail Federation (NRF) Annual Convention & Expo’ in New York City as the US launch-pad for its Merret supply chain ERP solution and new partnership with a systems integrator, SPI of Atlanta.

Retail Assist’s Managing Director, Alan Morris, was on SPI’s stand at NRF to see how Merret was received. ‘Staff at SPI have built considerable expertise in retail by specialising in the backbone operations of merchandising and logistics. The interest in Merret that they generated at the show has got things off to a flying start and I’m sure this will be an extremely successful relationship.’
