Software provider gives retailers the tools they need to simplify work for store teams

NEW YORK CITY – (Jan. 9, 2020) – One Door, Inc., the leading provider of cloud-based visual merchandising software, today announced its full lineup of activities for NRF 2020, which will be held at the Javits Center in New York City Jan. 11-14.

In-store execution of merchandising is a critical topic in retail today as stores look for ways to increase sales. But high-quality execution in stores is becoming more challenging with high associate turnover and limited expertise. Committed to simplifying the space planning and visual merchandising processes, One Door will highlight the ways that innovative technologies like AI, cloud and mobile help retailers rethink their merchandising strategies, so store teams get it right the first time, every time.

“As we enter the next decade, retailers need to make their stores more attractive, profitable and efficient. Our full lineup of activities will explore the current state of space planning and visual merchandising, while providing attendees with the takeaways they need to evolve,” said Tom Erskine, CMO and SVP of Product at One Door. “Stores will continue to be an extremely important part of the retail customer experience, and we’re excited to provide information and solutions that will help retailers win and grow.”

One Door will host a Big Ideas session on Sunday, Jan. 12 at 1 p.m. (Stage 4, Level 3). The expert panel will discuss how space planning and visual merchandising processes are evolving through the use of new technologies to keep up with the growing demands for merchandising agility, personalization and localization.

The panelists include:

Scott Heyer, Independent Consultant. Heyer has 20 years of experience in merchandising and presentation strategies, most recently as Director of Visual Merchandising for The Paper Store.
