Cue the drum roll. Welcome to Innovative Retail Technologies!

Today’s THE DAY.  It’s an exciting day for our readers, and it’s an exciting day for our team. This process — the rebranding of Integrated Solutions For Retailers — has been thoughtfully and diligently constructed over the past 12 months. We’re proud of our efforts to deliver readers the information on pragmatic innovation in retail they crave. We’ve rebranded ISR with our readers’ best interests in mind. As such, throughout this process, we sought the counsel of some of the retail industry’s finest leaders and executives for their input on our push to cover innovation. The feedback we received was overwhelmingly positive and exceptionally helpful. Indeed, our commitment to our readers remains strong, which is why we will continue to work hard to understand their challenges. We will also continue to be the pragmatic voice we’ve always been by covering innovation in its most sensible form — not “blue sky” innovation that few retailers can fathom let alone implement, but rather practical, tactical innovations that help retailers marry next-gen options with sensibility and security.
