Retail Assist, Whistles & BT Expedite win 'Project Implementation of the Year'
Jun '11
The judging panel of this year's Retail Week Technology Awards named a team of Retail Assist, Whistles and BT Expedite personnel winners of the 'Project Implementation of the Year' award at the London Hilton last night. The lively ceremony was well attended by key representatives from both the Retail and IT industries.

The Retail Assist, Whistles and BT Expedite partnership was successful in a highly contested category. Other companies shortlisted for 'Project Implementation of the Year' included New Look with Accenture Merchandising and Location Planning, O2 with Torex, Sainsbury's with Catalina and The Co-Operative Group.

This is the second consecutive year that Retail Assist has been successful in the 'Project Implementation' category at the Retail Week Technology Awards. In 2010, new womenswear retailer Mint Velvet and Retail Assist scooped the award.

Alan Morris, Managing Director at Retail Assist comments: “Winning at this prestigious industry event at all - let alone two years in a row - is a real honour because the awards celebrate innovation in retail and the primary judging criteria are the delivery of definable and significant business benefits.”

He continues: “As a company, Retail Assist seeks tangible ROI for all its clients. Mint Velvet and Whistles are two different businesses, but both are key Retail Assist customers. We're delighted to have been recognised alongside them for the high standard of work that has been achieved.”

“Retail Assist is currently undertaking a number of exciting implementations with other well-known retail brands. Perhaps one of them would like to enter the 'Project Implementation of the Year' category with us at the Retail Technology Awards next year? In an ideal world I'd love Retail Assist to make it a hat-trick!” Alan jokes.
