Aptos Cares: Atlanta Food Drive Supports Local Food Bank

Colleagues in our Atlanta Office divided into teams for their 3rd annual food drive to benefit the Atlanta Community Food Bank. Their original goal was 850 pounds. Thanks to Atlanta’s official food weighers, LaDonna Scott, Kim Chrzanowski and Charlie Clark, the final numbers came in and the group outdid themselves this year, bringing in a total of 1,037 pounds of food (with the RED team leading the pack for the 3rd year in a row)

Well done ATL team!

The Youngest Aptosian?

While hosting our new partners from Convergys, Montreal colleague Yves Gagnon and several others spent time away from the office helping the Convergys team get acquainted with the local sights. Yves’ young daughter, who came along for the day on the town, looks like she is definitely happy to be part of the team. Look at her welcoming the visitors with open arms!

She may in fact be the youngest Aptosian yet!   ;^)

Building Bridges to Help Engage Customers Differently

We recently formed a partnership with Convergys to provide “follow the sun” support for all 1,000 of our clients around the globe. To kick off the project, several members of the Convergys team are spending a month in Montreal to learn our systems and to become integrated into our culture, including the Aptos Way.

The Aptos and Convergys colleagues are bonding away from the office as well, as shown here, sightseeing together, are (l to r) Sam  SawitJanette Gonzalez, Yves Gagnon, Tanvir AchmedJan Rafael Nino Lontoc,  Arel Virgo Pao, and Paul John Mangalonzo.

Well done and good luck, everyone!

Aptos Cares: UK Colleagues Support Local Children’s Hospice

Last week several colleagues attended the Retail Business Technology Expo in London. Those manning the booth onsite got together after the show to donate the contents of the ‘shop windows’ from the Aptos booth, to the Alexander Devine Children’s Hospice. These included items kindly donated by our customers; M & Co, WHSmith and Coast, along with extra donations collected by the UK marketing team.

Well done UK team – what a great way to pay it forward!

RBTE 2018: The Team Celebrates a Successful Day on the Show Floor

Let’s face it: big trade shows are tough for all involved. Attendees have to traverse miles of exhibits while exhibitors must stand on a cold hard slab of concrete all day. By the end of the day, everyone is usually more than ready to sit down and share stories of the day over dinner and a beverage or two. Which was definitely the case for the Aptos team managing our stand at the RBTE show in London. The team, pictured here, represents colleagues from 5 countries across 2 continents…and they all look ready to unwind and celebrate a productive day…

World Retail Congress: David Sheekey Talks Engaging Differently

UK colleague David Sheekey was a featured speaker during the recent World Retail Congress conference in Madrid. David shared his point of view on how retailers can leverage technology to adapt to modern consumer expectations by engaging differently, from concept to customer. Eight-seven retail executives joined David for is presentation, which was, by all accounts, extremely well received.

Well done, David!

World Retail Congress 2018: Our Stand is Open and Ready for Business!

Aptos exhibited and sponsored the 2018 World Retail Congress conference held recently in Madrid.  The annual event brought together over 1,300 retail executives from across the global retail industry to discuss challenges and opportunities facing us all. Pictured here is Albane Noel, preparing our stand for another busy day in the Expo Hall.

And…We are LIVE at Titan Stores!

We recently went live with Aptos Store in Titan stores, and the team there looks very happy to celebrate the major milestone.

We can’t wait to continue the roll out at all the Titan department stores throughout Panama. Looking good, Team Titan!

Aptos Cares: Food Challenges Stuffed with Good Feelings

Team Umph from our Marlow, England office organised 1-minute food challenges that included: fitting as many marshmallows into your mouth as possible; eating as many biscuits and crackers as you can without drinking. Our judges were strict, but the clear winner was Ravi Dommaraju, who managed to get 20 marshmallows into his mouth in 1 minute!

As a bonus, monies collected from today’s exploits are going to Rennie Grove Hospice Care.

Aptos Cares: Atlanta Colleagues Help Bearings Bike Shop Help Kids

Kids in Atlanta’s Bearings Bike Shop program learn the skills required to create and maintain a bike.  They learn also personal and financial responsibility.  Last week, 15 Aptos colleagues helped turn their new facility – formerly an auto repair shop – into a thriving place for this important program. The entire Atlanta office supported a bike drive, which resulted in two bikes being donated, and according to Chris Maxwell, the on-site crew really “…provided a huge jump start for the new space that Bearing Bike Shop is trying to put together.”

Sounds like you all were on…
