Sysfore Announces Education Webinar For Retail: Choose The Right ERP For Your Midsize Retail Operations
Reputed retail technology expert Pinky Gandhi will join Ajith George, Founder & Director at Sysfore on April 4th, 2013 to present a webinar for midsize retailers to choose the right ERP platform to better manage business operations.
Bangalore, India – March 28, 2013 – Midsize retailers face challenges when making decisions on technology choices for their business. Choosing the right fit ERP is one of the most critical among them.
Existing systems that were bought earlier and seemed suitable in less challenging times are increasingly looking limited and inflexible. Questions facing midsize retailers include ones around features and functions, technology platforms, system integrations, lifecycle cost of ownership and whether the system will scale effortlessly to handle the increasing loads of a growing business.
Smart Midsize Retailers know answers to some of these questions, but are often unable to comfortably identify and mitigate the risk of choosing and using a Retail ERP solution.
The Sysfore Retail Education Webinar Series is designed to provide Midsize Retailers with guidance and tips to choose, manage, and extract maximum value out of their retail technology decisions.
Pinky Gandhi, a reputed retail technology expert, will be leading this webinar. She has more than 12 years experience in leading Retail Consulting and Technology firms, having implemented best practices for retail, both on an international and local level.
Ajith M George, Co-Founder and Director of Projects at Sysfore Technologies, will be accompanying Pinky Gandhi.
The webinar is scheduled for April 4th 2013 1:30 – 2:30pm IST / 12:00-1:00pm GST.
