Paris, France, May 29, 2015 – Today, Retail Pro International (RPI), an established global leader in retail management software solutions for specialty retail, and retail executives from prominent international brands convened for the 2015 Retail Pro Retail Customer Summit in Paris, the world’s luxury locus.
Retail Pro customers and partners representing their worldwide channel support network came together from around the globe for this major Retail Pro retailer appreciation event. A lineup of industry influencers was summoned to share insights on the critical technology that is driving retail sales today and evolving retail practices for the next generation of retail visionaries.
“Our customers are the global brands that define retail in all corners of the world. We are proud to be the solid retail technology backbone that powers their optimization endeavors and anticipates their future retail needs,” said RPI CEO, Kerry Lemos. “Our unwavering dedication to providing a comprehensive retail-management platform allows retailers to concentrate their efforts solely on cultivating lifelong shopper loyalty and increasing customer lifetime value.”
Alex Smith, RPI Director of Sales for European markets, added, “Retail for many of our customers, especially luxury brands, has always been centered on customer experience, even before it was fashionable in the industry to do so. Retail Pro is the tool that helps brands execute on their engagement strategies as they evolve to meet the needs of the demanding consumers.”
Retail luminaries in luxury, fashion, cosmetics, lifestyle, and sports brands experienced a stimulating full day of industry networking and thought leadership. Topics for discussion considered current practices and performance in global retail, as well as future directions with customer engagement, omnichannel efficiency, and emerging technology trends.
“Present retail trends are not occurring in isolation; they are deeply rooted in the retail ecosystem and the advance of one is inseparably connected to the success of the other,” commented RPI Director of Marketing, Alexandra Frith. “How you develop your operations across channels powerfully impacts how you engage your customers and how they perceive your brand.”
