By Sarah E Taylor-Oracle on Jan 16, 2013
Today was the final day of Oracle Retail Exchange in New York and ended an event that saw some great discussion and networking between retail executive delegates from around the world, as well as visits to a number of New York’s finest retailers, and culminated in the launch of Oracle Retail’s The Evolution of Experience Retailing research.
In our last Customer Showcase, attendees heard from Frederieke Ubels, Manager IT Innovation of bol.com, an organisation with over 3.4 million active customers in the Netherlands and Belgium, making bol.com the largest online retailer in the region and a market leader in the field of online sales of books, entertainment, electronic devices and toys. Ubels discussed bol.com’s longstanding use of Oracle Commerce products – Endeca Search and ATG Commerce - and how these have supported bol.com’s growth and strategies to improve customer service and market share.
A digital retailing roundtable concluded activities for the morning, featuring input from Teknosa, bol.com and Computer Plaza, on the challenges and opportunities facing ecommerce and traditional retailers as they seek to gain marketshare in this dynamic and competitive retail sector.
In addition, delegates recounted their perspectives on last nights VIP reception at the American Museum of Natural History, where Mike Webster, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Oracle Retail, launched The Evolution of Experience retailing research, and our guests were enthralled by the exclusive space show at the Hayden Planetarium.
