Brightpearl announces ‘Commerce Acceleration 101’ education series for growing retailers

Registration open for free blog and webinar series aimed at helping retailers compete and grow

Bristol, UK - October 17 2012 - Brightpearl, the commerce acceleration platform, has today opened registration for its upcoming series of webinars and blog articles. The series, called Commerce Acceleration 101, is aimed at providing real, practical and focused advice on how retailers can use modest investments in IT to accelerate both the speed and volume of trade via their businesses through multiple channels.

Brightpearl has worked with hundreds of retailers and wholesalers in the UK and US to help them manage the issues that arise from the changing landscape of commerce in recent years. From point of sale software, accounting and inventory management through to maximising the opportunity that online commerce brings - Brightpearl has been at the coalface of helping smaller businesses compete against their better-resourced larger competitors. The series will distil that learning into easy-to-understand-and-implement practical steps that will benefit both users of Brightpearl and customers of other systems alike.

“We call what we do commerce acceleration, as we think it best captures the kind of impact our solutions bring to businesses” says Chris Tanner, co-founder of Brightpearl. “It’s not enough anymore to use software to simply manage a business, it needs to enable you to grow your business. Through this series we will look at practical but productive steps to help retailers and wholesalers optimise their internal processes but also take full advantage of the opportunities online commerce brings.”

The series will provide registrants with access to articles outlining the issue which will be followed by webinars on the same topic offering more insight and the ability to ask questions that are relevant to their own business.

The initial schedule for November follows but registrants will be informed of future article topics and dates.

Free registration is open at Registrants will be sent articles and registration details when available.
