Double accolade for retail-only IT services & solutions provider, Retail Assist

Retail Assist has been shortlisted for two Retail Week Technology Awards with its fashion retailer clients Jacques Vert and Aurora Fashions, underlining the value of collaborative outsourcing.

PRLog - April 26, 2012 - CREDITON, U.K. -- In the recently-announced shortlist of this year’s UK Retail Week Technology Awards, IT services & solutions provider Retail Assist has been recognised by the judging panel in two categories, ‘Project Implementation of the Year’ and ‘IT Team of the Year’.  

The first shortlisting recognises the achievements of a project team comprised of the Jacques Vert Group Plc and suppliers Maple Lake and Retail Assist. The project was driven by the requirement to implement a supply chain solution central to the group’s multichannel growth strategy in respect of its Jacques Vert, Planet, Precis and Windsmoor brands.

The second shortlisting acknowledges the success of Retail Assist’s relationship with Aurora Fashions, the group behind women’s fashion brands Coast, Warehouse and Oasis. Since February 2011, the Aurora Fashions and Karen Millen IT team has been fully outsourced to Retail Assist. During that time, the IT team has delivered projects including Mobile EPoS, 90-minute delivery, international websites, f-commerce storefronts and a new ‘Ship from Store’ initiative.

Alan Morris, Retail Assist Executive Chairman, comments: “We’re very proud to have been shortlisted for two awards this year.  Both demonstrate the value of the collaborative culture and shared expertise that the right outsourcing model can deliver.  Both Aurora Fashions and Jacques Vert consider us an integral part of their IT operations and the business success that has come from working together is testimony to this.  Selective IT outsourcing can give retailers cost-effective and flexible access to a depth and breadth of skills that are indispensable in today’s market.”

The winners of ‘Project Implementation of the Year’, ‘IT Team of the Year’ and other categories will be announced on the evening of Tuesday 19th June at a ceremony at The Lancaster London.
