Talking to (and Learning from) a Retail Store Execution Software Leader - Part 1


My recent post (Software and Human) Help Wanted in Overwhelmed Retail Stores talked about how much attention (and IT investment) retailers pay to their merchandize planning and supply chain optimization processes as compared to their store-level task execution, even though this is where “the rubber meets the road.” I concluded my post with the fact that there are dozens of

burlington vt  Sony retail outlets. Moreover, Burlington Coat Factory saw task compliance going up to about 94 percent, with a 95 percent reduction in corporate-to-stores emails in late 2007 after implementing Reflexis. Earlier, the retailer was unable to even measure these metrics. For its part, Hannaford Bros.

A Firewall is Cheaper Than a Lawyer


eBay's motion for a preliminary injunction to limit Bidder's Edge online auction search engine from linking to their site, may set precedents for future interstate web links. On the other hand, proper implementation of a firewall makes the whole case a moot point.

burlington vt  with this request, the Burlington, Massachusetts based auction aggregator restored the link due to popular demand from its users. Market Impact If it doesn't get dismissed, the case known as eBay Inc. v. Bidder's Edge, D. Calif. No 0-99, 21-200, may set a precedent in Federal District courts for the legality of linking to websites that don't want you to link to them.
