Retail Assist shortlisted with Whistles and BT Expedite for Retail Week Technology Award 2011
IT solutions and services company shortlisted in ‘Investigo Project Implementation of the Year’ category for the second year running
A recent Retail Assist project completed in partnership with cutting edge fashion retailer, Whistles and BT Expedite has been shortlisted in the ‘Investigo Project Implementation of the Year’ category at the 2011 Retail Week Technology Awards.
Retail Assist was shortlisted in the very same category with new fashion brand Mint Velvet and BT Fresca the year before, and the partnership later went on to win the award. Alan Morris, Managing Director of Retail Assist comments: “We were extremely proud to win ‘Investigo Project Implementation of the Year 2010’, and obviously like to replicate the same success this year, however it’s an honour just to be shortlisted at these prestigious industry awards.”
Alan continues: “I believe the fact that Retail Assist had already worked with, and was integrated with other parties in the shortlisted team, such as BT Fresca contributed to our success with this project.”
This year’s winners will be chosen by a judging panel comprised of some of the best known names in Retail IT: Graham Benson – IT Director at MANDMDIRECT.COM, John Bovill – Group IT Director at Aurora Fashions, Peter Federico – IT Director at BMI, Peter Mila – Information Ecommerce and Logistics Director at Thomas Pink and Ian Woosey – Group IT and Ecommerce Director at Carpetright.
The winners of ‘Investigo Project Implementation of the Year’ and the other categories will be announced on the evening of Tuesday 14th June. The awards ceremony will again be held at London’s Hilton Hotel on Park Lane, a venue that is now accustomed to playing host to some of the biggest names in the retail industry.
