Trusted Retail Consulting Firm Offering Omnichannel Solutions & Improved Processes
RPE is one of North America’s top retail consulting firms. Since 1999, we’ve been helping retailers integrate people, processes, and IT to deliver innovative merchandising and supply chain solutions. In today’s retail landscape, businesses need to provide customers with a seamless shopping experience extending from brick-and-mortar stores to the online marketplace. Our industry-leading services and solutions streamline processes and centralize information to help our clients keep up with the demands of omnichannel retailing and maintain a competitive edge over other retailers.
What sets us apart from other retail consulting firms is the extensive industry experience offered by our consultants and solutions experts. Many RPE employees worked for retailers before joining our team, in positions ranging from planners and buyers to senior IT executives and CIOs. They understand the challenges that retail businesses face on a daily basis and apply industry best practices to implement effective solutions. Other members of our team previously worked for software vendors, where they helped to develop some of the solutions we now implement. We’ll draw on this knowledge and experience to help your company increase sales, maximize profits, and improve customer engagement.
