RELEX, the first supply chain solution provider to offer the power of in-memory computing, announces it is exhibiting at the industry leading Retail Week Supply Chain Summit on 20 – 21st May. RELEX will be presenting on stand 9 and offering attendees the opportunity to use its new benchmark for retail supply chain planning and execution tool.

Drawing on experiences from a cross-section of Britain’s top retailers, the tool, created for RELEX by international retail consulting firm Martec International, enables users to get a better understanding of how their business and how their supply chain compares with other retailers in the industry.

The Retail Week Supply Chain Summit brings together the leading retailers and manufacturers to discover and discuss the latest developments in the supply chain industry. The summit will take place in Kensington, London and is the ideal opportunity to tap into the knowledge of expert speakers and gain a fresh perspective.

Mikko Kärkkäinen, Group CEO, RELEX, comments, “Following recent research of retail supply chain managers*, RELEX has gained in-depth insight into the top business issues they are facing regarding supply chain planning and execution and the main challenges they have in terms of forecasting. We are excited to be able to share the results of our research and our benchmark tool with attendees at this year’s event.”

The Retail Week Supply Chain Summit is aimed at supply chain professionals and designed around providing insight into how retailers and vendors are working together to drive major changes in the industry.

RELEX continues to support retailers with even the most complex of supply chain, including those with high seasonality, heavy promotions, fast changes in rate of sale and short lead times. It is able to offer its service on a risk-free SaaS model without the need for long-term commitments – if retailers don’t get the results, then they don’t pay.
