Reflexis Customer, Burlington Coat Factory, Recognized as a Top Innovator by Apparel Magazine
Leading apparel chain receives award after implementing Reflexis solutions and improving retail execution in almost 400 stores. Award marks the second time this year a Reflexis customer has been recognized for outstanding business achievement and superior IT execution.
DEDHAM, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Reflexis Systems Inc. today announced Burlington Coat Factory has been recognized as a Top Innovator by Apparel Magazine. Apparel Magazine’s 2008 Top Innovator awards recognize outstanding apparel brands, manufacturers, and retailers that have integrated innovative ideas, processes, or technologies into their businesses. Burlington Coat Factory received the award for implementing Retail Execution Management solutions from Reflexis that enabled the retailer to increase compliance levels, improve efficiency, and provide a better customer experience.
“Leading industry analysts recommend that retailers should implement task management solutions to ensure consistent store-level execution of their corporate strategy. However, despite proven benefits of increased sales and productivity, less than 20 percent of large retailers and even fewer mid-sized retailers use task management solutions,” said Jordan Speer, editor in chief, Apparel Magazine. “We congratulate Burlington Coat Factory for recognizing the importance of Retail Execution Management and implementing solutions that enable consistent execution of merchandising, loss prevention, and promotional initiatives in their stores.”
“By implementing Reflexis Task Manager, Burlington Coat Factory has increased productivity, streamlined communication, and boosted task compliance to 94 percent,” said Gloria Johnson, Vice President of e-Learning and Task Management. “We also now communicate with stores immediately for product recalls and can pull merchandise off the shelves within hours nationwide. In addition, by implementing Reflexis StoreWalk on mobile computing devices, we have improved the efficiency of our managers in the field. Instead of being stuck behind a PC in an office, district and regional managers now perform store inspections and audits and report back to headquarters in real time from the sales floor, where they can spend more time providing leadership and helping customers.”
“For the fourth year in a row and second time this year, a Reflexis customer has been recognized for outstanding business achievement and superior IT execution,” said Narayana Raghupathy, Senior Vice President, Operations and Professional Services, for Reflexis. (Reflexis customer Hannaford Supermarkets received the 2008 Supermarket Leadership Award from RIS News in the category of Supply Chain Excellence.) “The Apparel Top Innovator award is further confirmation of our track record of rapid successful implementations that drive positive change and transform our customers’ businesses. We are extremely pleased to see Burlington Coat Factory recognized as a Top Innovator and look forward to enabling additional operational gains for them and all of our customers.”
