The Retail Data Partnership Ltd was established in 1997 to develop our ShopMate EpoS system. We are firmly committed to serving the independent retail sector. We believe that if retailers are to manage their businesses effectively in these days of tough competition, they need up to date and accurate data about their sales, profits and stock etc. Partnership is a crucial part of our business. In order to make the most of our approach to EpoS systems, we have built strong relationships and partnerships with wholesalers and retailers. We need the wholesalers to give us price files so that we can provide them to the retailers. We need the retailers to work with us to give us feedback on how to improve our EpoS systems and services. My role within the company is to develop on the existing Marketing strategy and provide new ideas to further develop the brand and turnover of an impressive market leader. Areas of responsibility include writing for the Trade Press and the websites blog informing readers on what is happening in the retail world. It is also my responsibility to develop the branding and advertising of the technological systems and services that we provide, as well as implement data on the works system.
