STORIS holds Unified for Success conference

Two industry experts set to keynote

MOUNT ARLINGTON, N.J., – STORIS releases the agenda for their “Unified for Success” client conference being held from November 1-3, 2017 in Florham Park, N.J.

The conference features two industry experts, Ryan Craver, senior vice president of emerging brands, licenses and digital strategy for Lamour Group and Marty Whitmore, vice president of Boston retail partners, who specialize in Unified Commerce and Digital Strategy as keynote speakers.  In addition to the keynotes, STORIS’ client conference includes 25 educational seminars, multiple networking events and evening receptions.

Craver will set the tone for day one of “Unified for Success.” His presentation, “Living in a World of Unified Commerce,” will focus on how “mobile, the sharing economy, social media, and location-based data are all changing not only our lives, but how customers engage in commerce.” As a senior advisor to many retail brands including New Balance, Terramar Sports and Joe Fresh, Craver is a leading expert on this topic. In his role, he directs key Unified Commerce initiatives focused on Mobile and AdTech.

Whitmore, vice president of Boston retail partners, will lead the conversation on the final day of STORIS’ conference. His presentation, “Moving from Faux Omni-Channel to True Unified Commerce,” will cover “how retailers can deliver a seamless customer experience across all touch points using a common platform, driving real-time intelligence and personalized engagement.” Before shifting to retail strategy, Whitmore worked as a VP for TJX brands and also for Global Store Systems. He brings the perspective of both a retailer and a technology expert to his message.

STORIS’ educational sessions are geared around 5 role-based tracks: Retail Operations, Inventory & Logistics, Buying & Merchandising, Business Intelligence and Information Technology. Topics include the evolving customer journey, selling strategies, inventory accuracy, moving merchandise, financing queuing, buying tools, route and capacity planning, cross docking, the future of business intelligence, dashboard design, system health and security, operational reviews, and more. Additionally, the STORIS team will lead key presentations on their Product Roadmap, the State of the Company, and a Client Panel on customer experience.STORIS holds Unified for Success conference
