Retail Business Services on Display at National Retail Federation Big Show
Retail Business Services associates and technology will be front and center at the National Retail Federation (NRF) Big Show, which kicked off yesterday in New York City. NRF's Big Show is one of the world's largest retail and technology conferences with over 38,000 attendees, 400 speakers and 800 exhibitors showcasing cutting-edge technologies.
Among the highlights this year will be Retail Business Services' frictionless store technology, created in collaboration with UST Global, Intel and Cloudpick. The innovative solution will be demoed in Intel's booth, and the team from Retail Business Services' Innovation Lab will be on site to discuss the solution and facilitate tours for attendees. The frictionless technology enables customers to scan in, shop and walk out, with a receipt emailed in seconds.
"This is a great opportunity to showcase one of our leading-edge technologies," said Ken Bolick, Director, IT Innovation for Retail Business Services. "We're eager to engage with attendees and hear their feedback as we continue to develop plans for the future of this technology."
Dan Covert, Director, Supply Chain Research and Development, will also participate in a supply chain workshop where he will discuss Retail Business Services' innovative supply chain technologies such as AI-enabled end-to-end forecasting and replenishment, integrated transportation management and data visibility.
"NRF is a great opportunity to engage with potential partners to support our innovation efforts," said Covert. "Other members of the supply chain team and I are looking forward to sharing the expertise we have as one of the largest supply chain providers on the East Coast and bringing back new opportunities we can leverage to continue to advance our supply chain."
