Express partners with True to access transformative retail technologies.
US speciality apparel and accessories retailer, Express, has partnered with True to gain access to emerging technologies that will help it deliver a future-fit retail experience for its fashion-forward customers.
Each year, True sees over 2,000 enterprise-ready technology and consumer-product businesses, via its Live Network, which will be introduced to Express on an ongoing and pre-emptive basis, to enhance its operations. In addition to the Live Network of sector-specific businesses and technologies, the retailer will gain access to True’s sector-specialist expertise and proprietary research.
Express will have a significant presence at True’s Retail & Consumer Technology Trade Mission, taking place in Chicago & New York this September. During this Trade Mission True will introduce enterprise-ready retail and consumer tech businesses from the UK that are best matched to support Express in its ambitions to deliver innovation throughout the business.
Mike Tattersall, True’s Chief Commercial Officer says: “We’re delighted to have added Express as a partner. We’re looking forward to working closely with Express on our impending US Trade Mission where we will demonstrate the strength and breadth of True’s innovation network. We are confident we will be able to recommend strategically valuable technologies to Express and support it in becoming a dynamic, future-fit business amidst an ever-changing retail landscape.”
David Kornberg, President and Chief Executive Officer of Express, comments: “Our mission is to provide inspiration and confidence through fashion to help people get to what’s next in their day, and their lives. To best serve our customers, we need to be at the forefront of both fashion and technology. We’re excited about partnering with True to discover transformative technologies that offer real commercial value and can augment the innovative work we’re already doing at Express.”
