SAN JOSE, Calif. – May 29, 2015 – RetailNext Inc., the worldwide expert and market leader in retail analytics for brick-and-mortar stores, today announced it will provide in-store retail analytics technologies and services for Bespoke, a retail technology innovation ecosystem made up of tech demonstration, coworking and event space at Westfield San Francisco Centre. RetailNext’s SaaS analytics platform will power Bespoke’s 3,000 square foot “white box” space, providing analytics and rich shopper insights for various pop-up tenants.
“RetailNext is excited to collaborate with Bespoke on the new ecosystem,” said Alexei Agratchev, co-founder and chief executive officer of RetailNext. “The retail store of the future is being designed today, in real time, with the shopper clearly in control, and the Bespoke ‘white box’ space allows tenants to learn, with quantitative data, the art of the possible and best practices for store design and operation.”
The first tenants of the White Box space will be the five designers – Jeff Ladra, Jessie Liu, Kanjana “Cake” Carlos, Peter Papas and Stephanie Bodnar – of the Fashion Incubator of San Francisco (FiSF), showcasing their new fashion lines and testing brick-and-mortar retail concepts, as well as OMsignal, a leader in biometric smartwear that will be launching their first pop-up store in the Bespoke White Box space.
In addition to providing retail analytics to the Bespoke ecosystem, RetailNext has also opened its new San Francisco office in the Bespoke Coworking space, housing a team of platform engineers and retail analysts.
