EuroCIS 2019: Stand Mates Separated at Birth?

The Aptos stand at EuroCIS has been a busy place, to be sure, but not so busy that our Kate Hill didn’t have time to notice that Alberto Rivas and Richard Willis looked….similar? We can’t quite put our finger on it, but they definitely do look…similar. Hmmm. Maybe they have been spending so much time together lately they are starting to look alike? Who knows, but there is definitely something..similar…about their looks.

If you figure out what it is, drop us a line, won’t you?

EuroCis 2019: Richard Willis Talks End-to-End Omnichannel Trends and Challenges

Day 3 of EuroCIS is well underway, and Aptos VP Richard Willis is speaking in the Omnichannel Forum. During his session, entitled “From Assortment to POS to Fulfillment: Integrating the entire journey to deliver seamless omnichannel experiences and higher margins,” Richard is sharing current trends, challenges and the opportunities inherent in supporting the modern shopping journey, and how integrating the enterprise can help improve every experience and protect margins.

Looking good, Richard – here’s hoping the presentation was a success!

EuroCIS 2019: Day 2 is Off to a Fast Start

Day 2 of retail’s biggest industry event in Europe is now underway, and the Aptos team is already busy. Plenty of pre-planned appointments and walk-up conversations are happening, as our stand is hopping with activity. Here we see Nick Thompson (white shirt) holding court with a group of retail executives, talking Singular Retail experiences.

Here;s hoping for a strong finish to another important day at EuroCIS. If you are attending the show, be sure to sop by and visit our stand in in Hall 10 E28.

EuroCIS 2019: The Team Gathers for Dinner, beer, and (Sigh) Wine

After a busy day at EuroCIS, the team gathered for local fare at a downtown Dusseldorf restaurant. And while there was plenty of camaraderie and team building, there was one minor snag…Solution Consultant Nick Thompson went rogue with his drink order, and despite being in one of the world’s greatest places for beer, Nick ordered wine.

Ah well, we guess that isn’t the worst thing he could have done. We hear all is forgiven!

Joining Nick, from left, were Peter Walker, Shaun Britton, Lutz Kaemmerer, Richard Willis, Nicole Roesch, Daniele Nizerro, Alberto Riva, Kate Hill and the aforementioned Nick.

EuroCIS 2019: Meetings Kick into High Gear

As the EuroCIS expo hall opened today, retail executives from across Europe streamed in to talk shopper expectations, retail challenges, and how Aptos technology can deliver Singular Retail experiences, from concept to customer.  The team was busy hosting meetings all day, including Peter Walker (standing, left) and Daniele Nizzero (standing, right) as they discuss Aptos Store  solutions with a couple interested retail executives.

EuroCIS 2019: The Team Gathers for Opening Day

EuroCIS opened today in Dusseldorf, Germany, and shortly before the expo hall opened for visitors, the team gathered for a quick photo. Pictured on our stand, from left to right, are Daniele NizzeroAlberto Riva, Christoph Graeber, Peter Walker, Lutz Kaemmerer, Nick Thompson, Shaun Britton and Nicole Roesch.

Looks like we have assembled a stellar team of retail and technology experts on site to ensure time spent at our stand in Hall 10 E28 will be well spent. If you are attending EuroCIS 2019, be sure to stop by and see the team!

More from Grand Opening of New Experience Store in Mexico

Several colleagues spent a few days in Mexico City last week to help Grupo Axo open their first Nike experiential store in Mexico City. As you can see by these photos, it was a collaborative team effort, as colleagues and executives from both Aptos and Grupo Axo worked together to bring this exciting new store live.

Well done on a great start, everyone, and best of luck for a long and successful journey in this new location!

More Stores Going Live in Mexico City!

Long-time Aptos client Grupo Axo operates stores throughout Mexico under numerous brand banners, including Nike. Last week they opened their first Nike experiential store in Mexico City. Several Aptos colleagues were on hand to support the opening of the Nike Artz store, including (from left) Brando Garcia, Clifford Perlman and Ivan Fernandez.

The guys look great in their shirts supporting the true team effort. And by all accounts, the opening was a great success. Congratulations, everyone!

EuroCIS 2019: When in Dusseldorf…

As the saying goes, “When in Rome, do as the Romans Do,” so did colleagues (from left) Daniele Nizzero, Alberto Riva, Shaun Britton and Peter Walker while enjoying dinner in Dusseldorf last night, on the eve of EuroCIS 2019. According to Peter, they ordered water for the table, but, being in Germany, they just assumed they meant beer.

Well, whatever the excuse, a decent glass of ale is still a decent glass of ale, amirite?

EuroCIS 2019: The Stand Stands Ready!

On the eve of one of Europe’s biggest retail events, the Aptos stand is staged and ready for action. We we have 5 solution stands prepared to help us talk Singular Commerce with retailers from all across Europe during this three day event in Dusseldorf, Germany.
