If you’re planning on attending the NRF Retail’s BIG Show in New York City this January, then you’re probably already doing your research on how to make the most of the event — and understandably so. With 700+ exhibitors, making the best use of your time at the world’s largest retail show in the cultural, financial, and media capital of the world can feel like mission impossible.
Having exhibited for many years, we at Mi9 Retail, know how overwhelming it can be picking the must-visit booths and events in advance. We previously shared our top tips for planning your visit to NYC and the Javits Center – now, we’re telling you why Mi9 Retail should be at the top of your list of must-see vendors at the show. Why should you stop by booth #4209 to visit Mi9 at NRF this year? Read on to find out our top three reasons.
1. Artificial Intelligence Will Be Front and Center
You don’t need a crystal ball to predict that artificial intelligence (AI) will be a hot topic at this year’s NRF. After all, artificial intelligence is the number one “game-changing technology” that retailers believe will transform their business. (Gartner) Attendees who will visit the Mi9 Retail booth will leave with a new wealth of knowledge on how demand management solutions can be optimized and taken to the next level with artificial intelligence. Our product experts will be demonstrating our newest AI-powered solutions and will show you the benefits of automating your entire merchandise planning processes. You will also learn how our end-to-end commerce suite can help you make the most of customer segmentation variables to personalize the customer experience.
2. Learn More About the Benefits of Demand Planning Without Spreadsheets
Ditching the spreadsheets and investing in modern demand management solutions is key to efficiently integrate, optimize, and automate the demand planning process. Yet, according to eMarketer, most retailers (55%) use a mix of pricing software and spreadsheets, while 42% still rely solely on spreadsheets. With the acquisition JustEnough Software earlier this year, Mi9 Retail added best-of-breed planning, allocations, and replenishment solutions to its end-to-end commerce suite that help retailers gain in productivity and maximize selling potential. We’ll show you how the integrated suite of JustEnough demand management solutions helps some of the world’s leading retailers reduce costly overstocks and out-of-stocks and delight their customers with the right products at the right places, at just the right time – every time.
3. Sell the Way Your Customers Buy with the Mi9 Retail Unified Suite
If you would like to see our retail operating system in action and how it can help you sell the way your customers buy, stopping by the Mi9 Retail booth is a must! The Mi9 Retail Operating System consists of all of the unified solutions that modern retailers need to streamline their business processes. From more accurately planning, allocating and replenishing merchandise to better engaging customers, we empower retailers with the tools they need to run their businesses in the most efficient manner possible. With the recent acquisition of the software and digital media company, MyWebGrocer, attendees will discover first-hand the products Mi9 Retail added to its portfolio with new e-commerce, order management (OMS), and click-and-collect functionality.
