Retail Assist and Morrisons shortlisted at the Retail Week Technology Awards
Retail Assist has once again checked out as a contender for another national industry award after being shortlisted for a prestigious Retail Week Technology Award. Each year the Retail Week Technology Awards attract significant industry interest as they showcase the most exciting and innovative use of technology within the retail industry.
Retail Assist has been specifically featured by the Retail Week Technology Awards for their work with Morrisons to support the launch of the supermarket’s brand new clothing line, Nutmeg. Nutmeg chose Retail Assist’s Merret supply chain solution, and IT managed services to provide Morrisons with the agility to respond to the requirements of fashion retailing, whilst integrating into the supermarket’s established IT, technology and business information systems.
At the Retail Week Technology Awards, Retail Assist’s work with Morrisons will be lined up against Asda, asos, Crew Clothing, M&M Direct, Phones4U, Shop Direct, Tesco and TopShop who have all been shortlisted in the ‘Project of the Year’ category. Final winners in each of the awards sixteen categories will be revealed at a glitzy ceremony in London later on this year.
This isn’t the first time that Retail Assist has achieved industry recognition following their major achievement of winning ‘Retail Supply Chain Excellence’ at last year’s Retail Week Technology Awards, together with scooping Nottingham Post Business of the Year and shortlisting at the Retail Week Awards.
Alan Morris, Executive Chairman of Retail Assist comments, “We are proud that our work is achieving industry recognition and that we are shortlisted for the highest levels of performance within retail technology. The Retail Week Technology Awards are highly anticipated as they showcase technology initiatives that are at the leading edge of innovation in retailing. Retailers know they need to stay relevant to their customers by responding to changes in consumer retail habits and emerging technology – these awards shine a spotlight on the retailers who are tapping into technology to connect with their consumers.”
