BRdata Cloud App

March 31, 2017

We’re pleased to announce the release of the BRdata Cloud App.  Now BRdata Cloud retailers can query item sales information for their store or entire chain with an intuitive app.  This release is just the beginning as we envision the BRdata Cloud App replacing the functionality of the traditional Windows handheld store devices.  Retailers are no longer confined to their network, as the potential exists for any information available in BRdata Host or Store databases to be made available on any Apple or Android device.  The app is available today in Google Play for Android and pending release in the App Store for iOS devices.  Current BRdata Cloud users can log into the app with their existing credentials.  We look forward to your feedback and suggestions.

This month we are starting a new user focus group for current and potentials users of our e-commerce platform, BRdata Collect.  E-commerce best practices, features, functionality, and future development will be discussed.  Please email me to attend the commencement meeting on Thursday, April 27th, if you are a current BRdata Collect user or interested in learning more on how your store can quickly compete in today’s online shopping environment.

We are presenting an information and user experience packed session list for BRdata World 2017 to the BRUG Board of Directors on April 13th.  The conference agenda will be posted once approved by your peers on the BRUG board.  The early bird rate ends May 1st, so please register early and save if you plan on attending.

As always, thank you for choosing BRdata for your retail technology needs and for your continued support.

Sincerely,

John Abbene

We are delighted to open up registration for our next user’s conference, which takes place September 17-19th in Melville, NY. The BRdata community of customers and partners gather from around the U.S. each year at BRdata World for strategic insights and professional networking. BRdata World 2017, our 10th user’s conference, is an inspiring three-day event that features success stories from top independent grocery retailers and wholesalers, gives you access to the experts behind our solutions, and connects you to your peers that are facing similar business challenges.

If they haven’t already done so, all grocery retailers should be thinking about implementing an e-commerce system.  Compete against the massive marketing machine that is relentlessly pushing to increase their market share in the grocery industry, while seizing a share of your sales and profits. Discover how with BRdata Collect, you can easily promote your brand, build customer loyalty, and enter into the e-commerce realm at your pace. There’s no need to worry about integrating to a third party provider, as your existing database can easily be transferred to your online store. Whether you plan on doing delivery, pickup, or both, there will be several case studies and deep dive sessions to learn best practices.

One of the tremendous values of BRdata World is the onsite interaction between attendees. Join us in New York and see how your colleagues are leveraging technology to produce great business results.

Come see why numerous retailers and wholesalers have signed up for BRdata Cloud, BRdata Connect, and now, BRdata Collect. Learn how you can create a branded consumer app for your chain or store to target your customers before, during, and after they shop. With this technology, stores can implement digital manufacturer coupons, digital punch cards, and online shopping, among several other features.

See how other retailers are accessing cloud based reporting and dashboards anywhere, anytime, on any device. Basket analysis, item movement, financials, loyalty, voids/refunds/returns, transaction lookup, production planning, out-of-stocks, cashier balancing, inventory shrink, and promotion effectiveness are a few of the reports/solutions available today.

Meet with the elected BRdata User Group (BRUG) board of directors, which is comprised of retailers, wholesalers, and our business partners. The president of BRUG will be presenting and discussing all of the great things that the user group has done for the application and how they are involved with guiding the direction of the solutions. In order to address the needs and requests of independent grocery retail industry, most of the education and sessions on the conference agenda are requested by and approved by the user group – your peers in the grocery retail and wholesale industry.

You’re sure to come away from this conference inspired about the possibilities available to enhance your business using BRdata software solutions.

Attendees will find value in thought-provoking keynote presentations and success studies, in-depth and interactive technical and product sessions, as well as fun networking events.
