|Leading retail consultant specializes in merchandising and supply chain solutions
Land O’ Lakes, Fla. (April 16, 2014) – Retail Process Engineering (RPE), a retail consulting firm helping retailers integrate people, process and IT to deliver innovative merchandising and supply chain solutions, celebrates the company’s founding and 15th anniversary. RPE is a recognized leader in providing retail consulting services, business process improvement, package selection, strategic IT planning, systems implementation and cloud computing services for leading merchandise management systems.
RPE president, Cliff Epstein, reflected on the company’s history. “RPE is constantly seeking ways to improve the delivery of our services and solutions to address the business needs of retail clients in a market that has faced substantial challenges and advancements during the last 15 years. RPE has evolved into one of the industry’s most trusted and innovative consulting firms, helping retailers achieve success.”
In 1999, a group of retail executives realized the key to more intelligently managing retail business decisions could be found in information. Retailers needed more data, better information, and the systems and processes to access more quickly. RPE was established to help retailers gain the data they needed, and learn how to use it to enhance their sales and profit.
Over the years, as the business environment has become more consumer-centric, RPE has added business practices to address changing technologies to optimize retailers’ performance. RPE has recruited and attracted results-driven associates with experience in retail from both a functional business user level and technical standpoint, allowing for a complete understanding of the business processes to make recommendations leading to improvements in merchandising and supply chain performance. RPE works with leading mid-size retailers across the United States and Canada.
“It’s been an incredible journey,” added Rob Henneke, executive vice president. “For 15 years, our hard work and commitment to innovation has helped us to establish trust and build long term relationships with our clients. We remain committed to staying ahead of the ever-changing retail environment, so that we will continue to provide essential services for our clients long into the future.”
