Today’s retail customers have more information and more channels than ever to influence buying decision. Providing retail supply chain consulting services since 1999, RPE can help your business stay on the leading edge of innovative retail merchandising and supply chain management solutions.

Retail Software and Systems 
Retail software supports virtually all aspects of operations. It involves hardware, software and the people who use it. In fact, retailers require a full suite of software applications. Each application provides the instrumentation to run operations. The collected works must be tightly integrated and orchestrated skillfully with precision. The resulting masterpiece must work with the market niche the retailer serves.

RPE provides retail supply chain consulting services, but we also provide hardware, software and the necessary personnel to support operations. RPE is not a software vendor, but has established relationships and works in unity with industry-leading software and hardware providers.
