NRF 2023 Wash-Up: What were our highlights?
NRF trend reports are everywhere this week, so we thought we’d do something different. Highlight the 5 things we actually enjoyed most about NRF.
Quorso and Microsoft are delighted to announce that Quorso has become a member of Microsoft’s Startups program.
95% of the Fortune 500 hosts their data on the Azure cloud and Microsoft Teams has 115 million frontline users. By being connected to both, Quorso is able to translate retailers’ data into simple, daily next-best-actions (“Missions”) for each store, then communicate each Mission to the right Store Manager, help them take action, and measure and learn what works.
While Azure is rapidly becoming the cloud-hosting platform of choice for retailers, Satya Nadella has announced that 2021 will be the year of Teams. Use of the software has boomed in the pandemic and this year he wants to cement its position at the center of working life.
Quorso now supports hosting on Microsoft’s Azure cloud and is connected directly into Microsoft Teams, giving the platform seamless access to Azure-hosted retail data and the ability to deliver “Quorso Missions” directly into the hands of the millions of Store and Area Managers who use Teams every day. Quorso’s Agile Store Management app provides analytics, prioritized actions, collaborative workflows and KPI measurement to these retailers, helping them drive rapid improvement and remain resilient in this new era.
Julian Mills, CEO and Co-Founder of Quorso said, “Our goal has always been to use retail data to help stores rapidly improve sales, through a software experience that is agile, simple and human. We replace the all-insight-no-action of traditional reporting tools and BI platforms, and help store managers to prioritize efforts and deliver impact on a daily basis. We are committed to making Quorso easy to implement and to use. Our collaboration with Microsoft’s Azure and Teams is a great step in achieving both of these things.”
Amali de Alwis, Managing Director Microsoft for Startups said, “The Microsoft for Startups team is delighted to welcome Quorso as part of our program. We’ve been excited to see the way they are disrupting the retail market and helping to improve the business performance of their clients’ stores, and look forward to supporting them with their continued global growth.”
Quorso’s Agile Stores app simplifies your data into 3 top-priority daily actions (‘Missions’) for every store, guaranteed to engage teams, increase sales, and drive KPIs. It then helps teams to launch their Missions, measure their impact, and scale the ones that work.
