Run by Retail Week and judged by retailers, the BT Retail Week Technology Awards celebrates excellence and showcases the technology that is making a difference to businesses.
Over the past few months, both retailers and suppliers in partnership with retailers have been busy submitting their entries to show exactly how technology has been used for the benefit of their business and their customers. The winners will be announced at the prestigious ceremony in June during an evening of reward, recognition and networking.
Vol Pigrukh, CEO and co-founder, Profitero, said: “Profitero is delighted that our submission with Ocado has been shortlisted in the prestigious BT Retail Week Technology Awards. We’re proud to have helped Ocado launch and continue to maintain its Low Price Promise initiative every day, delivering the highest accuracy in product matching, particularly amongst own-brand products. This initiative provides Ocado’s customers with the immediate assurance that they have secured the best price for their online grocery shop, and has helped Ocado attract more customers than ever before and achieve double digit sales growth.”
David Grossman, CEO, BT Expedite, said: "Congratulations to everyone who has made the shortlist for the BT Retail Week Technology Awards 2014. The judges now have the hard task of deciding the winners in each category but given the high standard of entries we see year on year, making it this far is a fantastic achievement. Good luck to everyone still in the running - we look forward to toasting the very best in retail technology with you on what promises to be another unforgettable evening!"
Rebecca Thompson, Insight Editor, Retail Week, said: “Congratulations to all of our shortlist – entries this year were better than ever and choosing the shortlist was a real challenge.
