European retailers

It’s been exciting to see first-hand Revionics’ growth in EMEA, as we have continued expansion in Europe for the last few years and now count customers in more than ten countries. Our global presence as we engage with innovative retailers worldwide, deep industry research efforts and ability to attract leading industry experts gives us some powerful insights into what trends and best practices winning retailers can – and should – successfully embrace. We remain committed to sharing those insights with retailers at both industry events and in our own direct engagement.

This year, like the ones just before it, promises to be very turbulent for retailers in virtually every market. Consumers change behaviors and technologies at dizzying speed, and the political and economic landscapes continue to undergo seismic shifts. The amount of data that every consumer and every transaction generates is multiplying exponentially, leaving retailers struggling to make sense of it all.

But with challenge comes opportunity, and contemporary data-driven machine-learning capabilities give retailers the means to more than overcome the obstacles they face – indeed, enables them to thrive, rather than just survive, in turbulent times.

We remain intensively engaged in our markets and you can see good evidence of that as we kick off 2017 with strong presence at two of the most important retail events of the year: EuroShop and Retail Week Live. We’re teaming with customers to give first-hand stories from the front lines of how retailers have seized technology to drive business success. Come check out our presentations!
