A Look Back at the Retail Technology Solutions Summit
Last week, ScanSource was invited to the Retail Technology Solutions Summit (RTSS) in Palm Beach Gardens, FL as the event’s exclusive distributor partner. The RTSS consisted of three days’ worth of conferences between suppliers and resellers to discuss business development strategies in the form of small group discussions as well as one on one discourse. The summit allowed value-added resellers, partners, and suppliers to come together and form significant and purposeful business relationships.
The Retail Technology Solutions Summit was held in a series of small boardrooms with 30-minute rotations for each supplier to explain their high-level solutions. This digestible time slot allowed resellers to gather a great amount of information before the suppliers moved on to the next room. “Some of the suppliers had solutions that were not a traditional retail solution but offered an extension of the technology in the retail environment,” said Nell Alverson, Senior Director of Marketing for ScanSource. “These innovative ideas will help address the changes that are happening from an operational standpoint in this vertical and will enable partners to help their end customers be prepared for future changes.” Throughout the summit, resellers were able to discover trailblazing products, network, and simultaneously develop their business and relationships.
With the conclusion of the conference, partners were overwhelmingly in favor of returning to the RTSS in 2023 and were able to identify the ways that growth was made throughout the duration of the summit. Resellers found the content discussed to be valuable in learning how to better serve their customers in the retail space, but also finding solutions to help their businesses continue to flourish.
