Retail Assist Celebrates 10 years in Business
2009 is a special year for us, as we celebrate our 10th year of trading.
In the words of Alan Morris: “The past ten years have been an extraordinary journey. We’ve reached new horizons as we’ve grown our portfolio of services and products, diversified into a number of retail sectors and, more recently, entered new markets such as the USA. The next ten should be even more exciting!”
Expansion has touched every area of our business. Staff numbers have grown from the three founding partners, Alan Morris, Gary Broughton and Nigel Illingworth, to now over 100. And in terms of physical locations, we’ve gone from one to several, including our corporate headquarters, Support Centre, Application Centre, and Data Centre.
We no longer operate solely in the UK: our products and services are now helping retailers in Eire, and as far afield as the Far East and North America. Along the way, we’ve forged many partnerships and we acquired Merret, all of which has helped us to diversify and grow.
“We’ve built a client list that’s the envy of many,” continues Alan. “We value the loyalty and confidence that our clients continue to show in us. It’s because of them and the great people we employ that 2009 calls for celebration.”
