Agilence has recently established a strategic partnership with Island Pacific, a leader in retail merchandising and store operations software solutions. By making it easier for retailers to pinpoint incidents of preventable loss and quickly remediate operational problems, Agilence and Island Pacific are reportedly helping retailers across the country increase profitability and deepen customer relationships.
“We’re excited to expand and grow our partnerships initiative with Agilence,” said Richard Gaetano, chief operations officer for Island Pacific. “We are constantly looking to ensure that we offer end-to-end solutions to our customers, which help provide a rapid ROI and answer real-life retail problems. This partnership with Agilence allows us to complement the Island Pacific SmartSuite with a best-of-breed solution that provides retailers powerful tools to proactively address loss prevention in their stores.”
“Survival in today’s retail market requires a two-fold strategy: optimize in-store efficiency and eliminate ‘ugly’ costs like inventory shrink,” said Russ Hawkins, president and chief executive officer at Agilence. “Specialty retailers are continually pressured to uplift sales and reduce expenses, so it’s incredibly important that they align themselves with customer-centric vendors. Because both Agilence and Island Pacific are deeply rooted in providing high-levels of customer service, a strategic partnership was a perfect fit. Now, we both can help solve retailers operational and loss prevention woes alongside a partner that is invested in the overall success of the specialty retail sector.”
Together, Agilence and Island Pacific are co-innovating around the impact data has on the retail industry and will focus their partnership on driving awareness through co-marketing activities.
