article imageThe Retail Digest aims to be ‘the front page of retail’

Cloud-based retail software platform Vend has launched The Retail Digest, the first retail news and information resource, where top 100 industry experts curate insightful and actionable content to help retailers’ businesses thrive.
Launched in mid-January, The Retail Digest is a community site which materialized from the necessity to fill an information void. It makes retail professionals’ mission so much easier by offering quick and simple access to top-notch industry-related content.
It benefits both online and traditional retailers, who are aware that staying up-to-date with news and trends, and taking action to run successful businesses is essential.
In addition to catering to retailers, The Retail Digest is also a site for retail consultants, experts, and influencers who need to keep up with the retail landscape.
Given the many changes happening in retail, including omnichannel, social commerce, and mobile, it’s more important than ever for retail professionals to stay on top of latest industry news. Information is power, after all, but since there are only so many hours in the day, it’s critical that retail pros get quick access to the right content. That’s why The Retail Digest couldn’t have been launched at a better time.
With so much industry-related content available online, people can find it difficult and time-consuming to dig into the sea of information that’s out there, in search of something they may need quickly. Vend has created The Retail Digest with one idea in mind: to be the go-to destination where the best retail-centric content is accessible in one place. From news, tips and trends, to topics like customer experience, technology and omnichannel, everything is available at the readers’ fingertips. They also have the ability to “upvote” the posts they like.
“As someone who covers the retail space, I understand how challenging it can be to find actionable, all-killer-no-filler content, and I know that many people are in the same boat. After all, retail experts and business owners rarely have the time to peruse multiple websites to find high-quality articles that they can share or take action on,” says Francesca Nicasio, author of Retail Survival of the Fittest.
Alicia Fiorletta, Senior Editor at Retail TouchPoints, James Bickers, Senior Editor at Retail Customer Experience, as well as Tyco Retail Solutions’ VP Tony D’Onofrio, and Bernadette Wilson, Associate Editor at Business Solutions Magazine are only a few of the top 100 carefully handpicked industry experts and influencers who are invited to develop and curate content for The Retail Digest.
Speaking about her partnership with The Retail Digest, Fiorletta said: “At Retail TouchPoints, our goal is to provide quality content focused on this exciting era in retail, so this new venture and partnership is a wonderful fit. I'm happy to help The Retail Digest grow and am excited to share new articles and resources with its followers in 2015 and beyond!"
Last but not least, according to Vend’s CEO Vaughan Rowsell, The Retail Digest was created with the intention “to help make the ultimate source for information that leads to retail success. Being right at the front of what’s happening in the fast-paced and ever-changing world of retail is vital.”
Since 2010, Vend has been providing cloud-based point-of-sale and retail management software for iPad, Mac and PC, which enables retailers to accept payments, manage their inventories, reward customer loyalty, and garner insights into their business in real-time. It has built a solid reputation by growing rapidly to more the 15,000 active users in over 140 countries. With headquarters in Auckland, New Zealand, Vend’s business spans mostly across North America, Australia and Europe.
