360pi CEO to Speak at Shoptalk

Alexander Rink to be key participant on Intelligent Pricing and Merchandising panel

Ottawa, Canada – April 20, 2016 – 360pi, the leader in price and product intelligence, is pleased to announce the participation of the company’s CEO, Alexander Rink, on the Intelligent Pricing and Merchandising panel at the inaugural Shoptalk conference this May in Las Vegas. The panel is scheduled for Wednesday, May 18th from 10:45am to 11:25am.

Retail is undergoing tremendous upheaval and disruption, largely driven by technology shifts including mobile, social, and web combined with changing shopper demographics and preferences. Merchandising tools and techniques architected specifically for store-based environments, simply will not cut it in the ecommerce age. As well, new retail tactics and strategies largely driven by technology are emerging daily, many of which were impossible to conceive, let alone implement in the brick and mortar era.

Shoptalk is heralded as the tech event for next generation commerce and this panel provides an excellent venue to connect with today’s retail innovators to discuss how real-time data and predictive analytics can be leveraged to offer shoppers the right product at the right price and at the right time.

“Merchants are being challenged to operate at internet speed, shifting the focus from art to science more than ever before. One such example is dynamic pricing which is being applied with increased frequency”, stated Alexander Rink, CEO of 360pi. “However, universal adoption of dynamic pricing can be as dangerous as relying on antiquated tools. Intelligent merchandising requires a holistic approach to convert shoppers and maximize profits.”

Mr. Rink looks forward to sharing the pros and cons of dynamic pricing and other emerging retail tactics with retailers at Shoptalk. In the interim, interested parties are welcome to download 360pi’s latest whitepaper, Dynamic Pricing: Is It Right for You?
