Land O' Lakes, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/20/2016 -- RPE Solutions, a leading retail consulting firm, works with retailers striving to achieve retail unified commerce to bring areas of the business across shopping channels together. As a sponsor and exhibitor at the 2017 National Retail Federation (NRF) Conference and EXPO, running January 15 through 17 in New York City, RPE Solutions will feature their latest omnichannel retail solutions and unified commerce platforms.
RPE specializes in retail consulting services and solutions that allow all operations, like merchandising, forecasting, planning and allocation, replenishment and point of sale work seamlessly across all channels. Whether a consumer is shopping online or interacting with a brick-and-mortar store associate, all information is consistent across every channel.
The need for retail unified commerce is driven by the retail market's increasing role of online shopping. This year, Cyber Monday rivaled Black Friday with shoppers spending $3.45 billion over the internet, according to Adobe Digital Insights. That is a 12.1 percent increase from the previous year, making it the largest shopping day in online history.
"Ecommerce is seeing growth at an incredible pace and retailers must continually meet or exceed shopper expectations to stay competitive," said Rob Henneke, executive vice president of RPE Solutions. "We help retailers bridge the gaps between the way consumers shop and the way retailers sell."
Achieving unified commerce is a top priority for retailers, but can be a challenging process to attain without a true unified commerce platform. Retailers can no longer afford to operate their businesses in silos, or run multiple-point solutions on disparate platforms.
"Retailers must have the systems and processes in place to support this shift in consumer shopping behavior—not only during the peak holiday shopping period, but throughout the year," said Henneke.
Fresh off the holiday selling season, retailers can discover ways to achieve retail unified commerce by attending the 2017 NRF Conference & EXPO held annually in New York City at the Jacob Javits Convention Center on January 15 through 17.
The NRF Conference & EXPO is the industry's largest event where retail professionals can network, learn from industry experts and meet with innovative technology and solutions providers and retail consultants such as RPE Solutions. Learn about today's unified commerce platform solutions and RPE's retail consulting services by scheduling a meeting today with RPE Solutions at NRF.
