Retail Technology is the information technology (IT) solutions magazine for major retailers in food, non food, hospitality,leisure, financial services and variety retailing – in fact, any business with transactional and/or consumer-facing operations.
Retail Technology has been reporting on the changes in retailers’ use of IT for over 25 years. In that time, the magazine has reflected the move by retailers from employing technology as an operational to a key strategic resource.
Technology can no longer be separated from the core business of staffing, merchandising, management, marketing, logistics and design. With ever-growing competition across growing sales channels that have no geographical boundaries, technology underpins store, e-commerce, mobile, call centre and mail order operations. As a result, Retail Technology has moved with the times, from the early days of analysing how electronic point-of-sale (EPoS) equipment could automate checkout processes to today’s sophisticated multichannel environment, where retailers and brand owners are now using technology to extend the reach of the store, get closer to their customers and foster brand loyalty throughout the UK and the rest of the world.
Our focus therefore is on the business drivers and benefits behind the deployment of technology. By sticking close to senior business, marketing and IT retail management, we are able to provide best guidance on how information and communication technology systems can provide retailers with competitive advantage as they react to and implement change.
Our journalists and specialist writers have extensive experience and all have worked in retailing, marketing and IT. We are often invited on an exclusive basis to find out how suppliers are making innovative use of new technology. And we attend the major international IT and marketing conferences.
Retail Technology will continue to move with the times in the year ahead. Having been re-designed just over a year ago and updated with expanded electronic circulation, the publication aims to keep its readership one step ahead of the competition via its magazine, weekly e-newsletter and highprofile website.
The circulation of Retail Technology magazine is constantly being developed and improved and now offers an average annual circulation of 6,749 copies (ABC Jan-Dec 2011). Furthermore the magazine is now available as a fully functional e-zine to our entire database of over 32,000 UK and European retail industry contacts. Our weekly eNews is also emailed to this database (Publisher's Statement November 2011).
Retail Technology magazine is also open to opportunities to complete its marketing portfolio and offer a comprehensive route to the retail IT marketplace through its magazine, digital, events, conferences and awards. Highlights for the publication for 2013 is sponsoring Europe’s leading trade show for retail IT, EuroCIS and a media partner for Retail Business Technology Expo - the essential retail event for 2013 at Earls Court London
