“Smarter Retailing Is In Hand”
At Retail Assist, we have recently had the pleasure of appointing Robin Coles to join our busy team, as our ‘Head of Product Strategy.’
Alongside an unwavering love for Chelsea football club, Robin brings with him a wealth of retail knowledge gained through 25 years in the fashion industry. With a large scope of insider insight, Robin has a lot of brilliant ideas regarding how best to take the business forward.
One such idea regards the use of tablets in store. With pilots in place regarding the use of our supply chain solution, Merret, on the Google Nexus device, and with roll out planned for early 2014, Robin has been considering the use of Google Nexus devices in stores as a way to sell, manage stock and carry out staffing tasks.
Robin’s thoughts on the next step in the evolution of retail IT were picked up as a feature for the ‘Talking Business’ series in retailer staple ‘Drapers’ this week, and although we may be biased, we think it’s a very interesting read.
