Four reasons to put Infor on your NRF 2017 must-see list

by Infor Retail January 12, 2017 NRF

Stop by booth 2854 to see how we’re reinventing retail with vision, passion, and results

NRF 2017 is just days away, and we at Infor are eagerly anticipating retail’s biggest annual show. We even have our own mantra for the event: Vision. Passion. Results. We want to use our time at NRF to share our vision for how our cutting-edge solutions can help retailers innovate and disrupt the status quo in their markets. We want to demonstrate our passion for helping retailers navigate this new era of commerce. And we want to show our commitment to working with retailers to achieve measurable results that strengthen the bottom line. That’s a tall order, but we’re up for the challenge.

NRF is a prime opportunity to check in with the latest in retail trends and technologies. Here’s why we think you should put connecting with Infor on your NRF must-see list:

1. See Infor’s retail-ready solutions firsthand

We’re especially excited for NRF because of the opportunity to show how Infor’s solutions are helping innovative brands, such as recently-announced new customer Crate & Barrel, reinvent retail. We’ve recently expanded our platform with capabilities in Demand Management, with predictive and prescriptive analytics to help retailers tackle their most complex forecasting and planning challenges. We’ve also enhanced our offering in Converged Commerce to help retailers deliver holistic end-to-end engagement through a single integrated set of product information, prices and promotions, customer data, and inventory counts. Finally, Infor’s acquisition last year of GT Nexus has resulted in the availability of the first global commerce cloud providing end-to-end visibility and control across physical and financial supply chains.

These capabilities aren’t on the drawing board. They’re being used at leading retailers across the globe and you can see them demonstrated live in our booth #2854 in the Javits Center. While you’re there, we hope you’ll also take the time to check out our industry-leading capabilities in the following areas:

2. Learn how Infor’s Project Destination is upending business as usual in retail software

Another innovation we’ll showcase during NRF 2017 is our recent launch of Project Destination. We believe that innovative technology should be delivered in an innovative way. That’s the idea behind Project Destination—our plan to migrate your legacy ERP and supporting software to a modern, beautiful, cloud-based solution, in a way that’s tailored to your unique needs.

The current status quo in retail technology creates barriers to the ongoing innovation and flexibility that retailers need to thrive in today’s crowded and competitive market. Project Destination offers a compelling alternative that allows each retailer to chart its own course in deploying Infor’s industry-leading solutions. It also includes a series of “quick wins” so the retailer’s organization experiences the benefits of the transformation sooner. Just as importantly, it comes with the financial tools and incentives that enable the retailer to grow into our platform over a multi-year period. Visit booth #2854 to hear all about it.

3. Hear from Infor customers at Cathy Hotka’s Retail Executive Breakfast

There’s no better way to understand the value of Infor’s solutions than to hear directly from retailers who actually use them. That’s why we hope you can join host Cathy Hotka on Sunday morning, 8:00 – 10:00 a.m. at the W Hotel Times Square for an Executive Breakfast discussion featuring Zumiez VP of IT Rory Hudson and Infor’s VP of product strategy, digital & CX, David Dorf. Zumiez was a pioneer in omni-channel commerce before the term even existed. This is a great opportunity to hear how this standout brand continues to reinvent itself and deliver the seamless engagement that has created one of retail’s most loyal customer bases. Seats at this executive event are very limited, so email Cathy at cathy@cathyhotka.com to reserve your spot.

4. Join the party at the Skylark

Remember the adage about all work and no play? Be sure to make time in your schedule to join Infor for NRF’s best party. We’re thrilled to have entertainment by Morris Hayes, a hugely talented keyboard player who has worked with some of the biggest names in music, including Prince, George Clinton, Elton John, Whitney Houston, and Stevie Wonder. The venue will also take your breath away, with the Skylark’s panoramic views of the Hudson River, Times Square, and the Empire State Building. Space is limited! Email us at retail@infor.com to reserve your ticket.

At Infor, we’re constantly working on the innovations that can help our customers reinvent the retail experience for their shoppers. Our presence at NRF makes it easy to show you how. Please make plans to connect with us during your trip to New York, January 15-17, booth #2854.
