Retail Assist Sponsor ‘Supply Chain Excellence’ Award
Retail Assist have today announced their sponsorship of the “Supply Chain Excellence Award” at the 2010 Retail Week Technology Awards. Shortlisted for this award are ASOS, Boots, Scotts&Co, and Argos. The Retail Week Technology Awards recognise the retailers and their suppliers who display excellence and innovation in their deployment of technology to make substantial improvements in their business.
Nigel Illingworth, Product Director at Retail Assist comments: “Retail supply chain is a particular area of interest to us, as Merret our integrated supply chain solution has previously won and been nominated for a number of prestigious industry awards. We therefore understand and know how important the award will be to the companies on the shortlist – I’d like to take this opportunity to wish them luck”.
Separately, one of Retail Assist’s most successful recent projects, completed in partnership with new women’s fashion retailer, Mint Velvet, has been shortlisted for the award category “Project Implementation of the Year”.
The winners of the Retail Week Technology Awards will be announced on 15th June at a ceremony in London. Alan Morris, Managing Director at Retail Assist will be presenting the “Supply Chain Excellence Award” to the successful retailer.
Alan concludes: “Being nominated for one award and sponsoring another should make this an exciting night for us. A number of highly successful retailers have been shortlisted in the “Supply Chain Excellence” category; any one of them would be a worthy winner. Ultimately the decision is now in the hands of the judges – I’m interested to see what will happen”.
