It has today been announced that Retail Assist will sponsor the ‘IT project of the year’ category at the forthcoming Retail Systems awards. Now in their sixth year, the awards present an opportunity for organisations to gain the prestige of public and retail industry acknowledgement as being the leader in their field.
The ‘IT project of the year’ award will recognise a retailer who has delivered a successful IT project into its operations. The criteria are that the project has met all requirements and has improved the overall operations of the organisation. The innovation of the technology employed by the retailer will be assessed.
Shortlisted in the ‘IT project of the year’ category is Barclays Bank, The Carphone Warehouse with RedPrairie, Co-operative Group with Kronos, EAST with Vodat, JD Sports Fashion with VSc Solutions, The Post Office, Republic with Torex and Thomas Pink with BT Expedite and Fresca.
The winner of this and the other categories will be announced at a ceremony on the 26th October. Alan Morris, Managing Director at Retail Assist will be presenting the ‘IT project of the year’ award to the successful company or partnership.
Alan comments: “We decided to sponsor this category based on Retail Assist’s track record of delivering award-winning IT projects within the retail industry. I’d like to take this opportunity to congratulate all of the nominees. The companies that have been shortlisted are very diverse, and reflect the varied and exciting nature of the retail industry. I look forward to meeting the winners of this award on what should be a lively and entertaining evening.”
