Sanderson RBS, the publicly owned UK provider of retail software and services, has won a prestigious IBM Award for Innovation.
The European Award, which was presented at IBM’s annual retail summit in The Hague, recognzses the pivotal role Sanderson has played in implementing the innovative new Enactor solution at a major UK specialty retailer.
Enactor is a next generation retail management solution from the design team behind Retail-J, the store system deployed by many of the UK’s top retailers. Encompassing EPoS, Back Office, Head Office, Warehousing, Loyalty and CRM, it uses unique process-based design tools. This means that retailers can configure the system to match their business processes and respond rapidly to changing business requirements, to deliver greater efficiencies throughout the retail operation.
IBM was particularly impressed with the quick roll-out time of the solution, just four months from contract exchange to the installation being completed, and this was key to Sanderson winning the accolade.
David Mahoney, Managing Director, Sanderson RBS concludes: "It's a real honor to receive another award from IBM in recognition of our contribution to innovation in retail technology. The Enactor solution will change the way retailers think about technology, as it gives them the ability to design a solution which matches their business processes, rather than changing those processes to match the solution’s parameters. We're very excited about Enactor and are proud to have received the IBM award in recognition of our efforts."
