Retail Business Technology Expo customer review

“I enjoyed the show – the day was very worthwhile, and I’m already planning to attend the 2012 event.  It was a productive day as I was able to visit Futura (our EPOS provider), Handpoint (who have been working on a hand held solution for us) and Davidson Richards (another EPOS provider we have met before).”

Rupert Frost, IT Director, Frosts Garden Centres

The best thing you saw at Retail Business Technology Expo?
I thought this was a great event for a launch show.  The seminars that I saw were very good, and I wish I’d had more time to see a few more presentations.

What new or different things do you want to see there next year?
I work with a large number of suppliers, and some of these are fairly small enterprises.  I’m interested in solutions and technology that can help me work with my suppliers, and I think RFID, wireless and handheld technology would really benefit my business.  Self service terminals are also of interest to me.

What do you think are going to be the key trends in retail technology over the next 12 months?
There’s lots going on out there.  I’d like to find out if RFID is back on track, and what the cost of investment and maintenance is looking like.  Cloud computing is also of interest, and this technology could have a great impact on the size of IT departments.
