The RPE Difference

Retail Supply Chain Consulting

Consultants with a Retailer’s Perspective
Many of our consulting experts have a retail background. They have been in your position and understand your challenges providing an outside perspective with insider experience and knowledge. Many employees worked for retailers before joining our team or engaged with software vendors developing the solutions we now implement. They understand the daily trials retailers face and draw on this experience to meet today’s challenges and tomorrow’s opportunities.

Process and Application Knowledge
We understand today’s retail is constantly evolving. We ask tough questions to find the right answers applying our breadth of expertise to address your needs by improving processes and harnessing the power of technology. Our retail knowledge, systems and applications expertise, technology skills and process improvement expertise help clients achieve success and reach bottom-line goals.

Added Value to Every Project
RPE is known for the value we bring to every project. As a boutique consulting firm, we engage with established nationwide retail chains and manufacturers as well as emerging companies, but all with the same goal to constantly grow revenue and enhance the customer experience. Partnering with a big-name firm with a big price tag does not always translate to more expertise and experience. RPE has the expertise and experience with a personal touch.

Collaborative Approach
Since 1999, RPE consultants have built strong relationships with clients to become trusted advisors based on confidence, understanding and collaboration. Dependable, persistent and detail oriented, we are laser focused on providing excellent customer service to become a reliable, trusted and value-driven consulting partner.
