Every year at this time, Retail Info Systems (RIS) publishes its Software LeaderBoard, a list that ranks top vendors in the retail software industry based entirely on the votes of global retailers. LeaderBoard 2013 has just been released, and we’re proud to announce that for the first time, RetailNext has ranked among leading vendors in six out of ten categories.
By itself, this is exciting news for us! But especially since it’s the first year that RetailNext has appeared in any of the LeaderBoard categories, this is also an indication of how much we’ve developed and accomplished in the last year alone.
Following are the categories wherein RetailNext ranked (click to enlarge):
To generate LeaderBoard rankings, retailers used an online form to rate vendors on a scale of satisfaction from 1 (lowest) to 5 (highest) in the ten criteria. Retailers were invited to vote by an email message with a link that could be used only once and couldn’t be transferred to another computer. All invitations were sent out by the independent firm Litchfield Research in September and October. After the survey closed, Litchfield Research created an aggregated report and sent it to RIS to publish in the Software Leaderboard.
As we further develop our analytics technology and improve our service to the retail industry, we’ll strive for even better and more numerous rankings in the RIS Software LeaderBoard. In the meantime, we’re especially proud of this accomplishment as it’s based completely on the opinions of retailers who use our products.
