MIAMI, FLORIDA May 29, 2018 – Mi9 Retail, a leading provider of omni-channel retail solutions, is pleased to announce that Refac Optical Group has chosen Mi9 Retail to power its digital business.
Refac is a leading provider of vision care products and services in the US and Canada. Refac is the parent company of Nationwide Vision and U.S. Vision, which operate both free-standing stores and lease departments for major retailers such as JCPenney, BJ’s, Meijer and Boscov’s. The company was originally founded by opticians and is proud of their end-to-end vertical supply chain. Believing that the quality of sight enhances the quality of life, Refac is focused on providing the consumer with unparalleled value, selection, quality and convenience for their family’s eyecare needs.
Mi9 offered the feature-rich integrated retail suite US Vision was searching for, with tools such as omni-channel inventory management, retail analytics, demand planning, and e-commerce, all available out of the box without the need for third-party plugins. “When we realized that we could eliminate unnecessary costs and complexity by partnering with Mi9 Retail and get everything we needed through one trusted source, the decision to migrate to the Mi9 suite was an easy one,” said Caroline Flagler, SVP of Marketing and Merchandising at U.S. Vision. “We will now be able to manage multiple systems from a single back-office, reducing costs and inefficiencies. Unlike most software providers, Mi9 Retail owns the entire project from start to finish and will be handling both the software and implementation. We look forward to partnering with Mi9 to offer the user experience our customers expect and are excited to see a quick return on investment.”
“Mi9 Retail will empower Refac with the tools they need to remain competitive in a rapidly changing business landscape,” said Neil Moses, CEO of Mi9 Retail. “The keen eye they show for innovation will ensure the prosperity of their business for years to come, and we look forward to helping them reach their business goals.”
