iVend and Venistar Retail Event

13 October 2015 – Watlington, Oxfordshire, UK – For fashion retailers looking to break down the barriers of multichannel retail there is finally something new on the Italian market to help them maximise their omnichannel business potential. Part of Citixsys (with over 1000 customers in 46 countries worldwide) iVend Retail is a powerful and innovative omnichannel retail solution for the way retailers work today, enabling them improve customer engagement and offer shoppers an enhanced and personalized shopping experience.

Fashion & Luxury retailers in the Italian market will have an exclusive opportunity to see the iVend Retail Suite first hand at a special preview event “Integrate your sales channels and maximise profits in today’s Omnichannel world”, that will be held in Bologna in the 4 Viale Masini, a stylish boutique hotel in the city, on November 12 in the afternoon.

The meeting, organized by iVend Partner Venistar, a specialist in Retail Innovation solutions for the Fashion & Luxury Brands, will cover key topics for retailers today, including personalization tactics and solutions to enhance the customer journey at every touch point.  With insight from retailers and industry innovators, it will address key trends and issues, such as how retailers can reinvent ‘bricks and mortar’ in today’s omnichannel world.

After a chance to mingle with fellow retailers and key influencers over welcome drinks, delegates will enjoy a key note speech on the evolution of omnichannel and digital strategies from an eminent expert in the field.  As well as looking at how omnichannel has become instrumental in modern customers’ buying behaviours, iVend Retail’s Tim Barton will also explore the benefits of omnichannel for retailers and how they can fast-track their omnichannel performance.

The next session will highlight how this solution provides retailers with a distinct competitive advantage, showing how technology underpins omnichannel operations. Thanks to the full integration of iVend Retail Suite with the Venistar omnichannel platform FashionAble Retail (FAR) and the Customer Master Data Management (CMDM), the digital and physical experience of the consumer are synchronized, enabling retailers to put the customeriVend and Venistar Retail Event at the center of their sales process. The topic, presented by Venistar, which will close the conference, aims to leave participants with a clear message: choose the right solution because omnichannel is crucial for those who want to adapt their business model to the new shopping habits of consumers in order to compete fully in a constantly evolving marketplace.

The day concludes with a further opportunity to network with fellow retailers and leaders in retail innovation over drinks in the hotel’s glamorous lounge bar.

“The ability to integrate all customer touch points to deliver a consistent retail experience in whichever channel customers shop, regardless of the device they use, is critical for today’s omnichannel retailers,” said Roberto Da Re, Venistar President.  “The event will bring retailers and industry innovators together to discuss the impact and challenges of better targeting the omnichannel shopper, providing tangible learnings and solutions retailers can implement to drive conversions in each channel.”

“We’re delighted to co-host this event with Venistar, which is designed to deliver both insight and inspiration,” added Richard Kolodynski, Senior Vice President European Operations for iVend Retail (part of Citixsys worldwide). “Technology is the cornerstone for retailers who are looking to meet the needs of today’s digitally enabled shoppers.  The event looks to enlighten retailers, demonstrating how, through the delivery of a consistent experience regardless of a customers’ touch point, they can better compete and drive increased conversions.”
