Merret and SPI to mark first anniversary in US market at NRF’s 2010 Big Show
From 10th to 13th January, the Javits Center in New York City will once again play host to the largest annual international gathering of retailers and suppliers to the retail industry. When the doors open on the National Retail Federation’s (NRF) 2010 Big Show, an expected 17,500 visitors from more than 60 countries will be able to engage with 500 solutions providers in a massive expo and convention.
Amongst the providers will be Software Paradigms International (SPI), Retail Assist’s North American implementation partner, who will be showcasing the company’s Merret supply chain ERP solution.
The 2010 event will mark the first anniversary of the relationship between SPI and Retail Assist, for it was at the NRF 2009 event that SPI launched Merret to the US market. Today, SPI delivers Merret as an end-to-end tool that extends from Business Analysis through professional Project Management, Development & Implementation to Training, Hosting and 24/7 Support.
Explains SPI’s Jeff Meaux: “We see Merret as the go-to ERP solution for retailers looking to simplify supply chain management. From its single database, retailers consolidate all information into one, easy-to-access location. With Merret’s management capability, teams achieve greater control over the planning and merchandising process. And with Merret’s development roadmap, retailers know they’re investing in a long-term solution.”
“It’s been an exciting year for SPI and for Merret,” adds Retail Assist’s product director, Nigel Illingworth.
“In order to protect their competitive edge in tough trading conditions, retailers are being forced to be more savvy. A solution with the depth and breadth of Merret can make a real difference to business efficiency, customer satisfaction and bottom-line profitability, and we look forward to creating a lot of interest for Merret at the January show,” he continues.
