ShopKeep® POS invites you to an evening panel discussion and networking event in NYC on September 24 to explore the concept of 'Lean Retailing'.
Please join us for an informal discussion about this new approach for brick and mortar retailers, followed by drinks and a chance to catch-up.
The event will launch TheLeanRetailer.com (site not yet live) - a new online resource center for merchants - and will ask what today’s retail businesses can learn from the 'lean' technology startup community. The panel will explore:
What does it take to succeed as a brick and mortar retailer in a world increasingly dominated by e-commerce?
Which new technologies are worth the investment for cash-strapped local businesses?
How can retailers take a 'lean' approach to test new technology and practices, and measure the impact?
