The failure of retailers to meet e-commerce customer expectations during the 2013 holiday season has prompted many to reach out to enVista (Booth 4907) for supply chain consulting and IT services support, said Tim Talarico, senior director.

“Retailers are struggling to manage their omni-channel supply chains and meet the expectations of their customers,” he said. “They may have tried to handle their own infrastructure upgrades and strategy, but now are seeing the value that an independent consultant can bring to their business in terms of expertise, experience and resources.”

enVista’s Facility Design & Build practice had already attained record revenue in 2013, the company announced on Monday. Having recently completed a dozen projects for leading retailers and distributors, the firm’s client list includes: Hibbett Sports, Sports Authority, ECCO, Dansko, Horizon Hobby and Provide Commerce. The design build business unit is currently slated to deliver eleven large-scale projects in 2014 with a weighted pipeline greater than $75 million.

“Our retail customers are seeking to gather more information from the point of manufacturing all the way to their customers hands. For example, they are particularly interested collecting more data at the store level and integrating it with their other intelligence,” Talarico added. “It enables them to better serve their shoppers by analyzing their buying habits in a variety of ways, including geographically.”

Modex 2014 is scheduled to be held March 17-20, 2014 in Atlanta’s Georgia World Conference Center. The tradeshow will showcase the latest manufacturing, distribution and supply chain solutions in the material handling and logistics industry. Modern’s complete Modex 2014 coverage.
