LS Retail honored its best-performing partners during a dinner and awards ceremony that took place at Santiago Bernabéu Stadium in Madrid, Spain, on April 26. The awards dinner closed the first day of conneXion, LS Retail’s yearly retail and hospitality conference and Expo, which this year takes place at Meliá Castilla Hotel in Madrid, April 26-27. LS Retail’s global partner network includes over 270 certified companies in 80 countries. These companies are responsible for delivering LS Retail software solutions worldwide, and for providing local businesses with customized implementations, project management and technical support. Every year, the highest-achieving partners in the LS Retail ecosystem are assigned a level based on their sales successes during the previous year.
Partners displaying high, great and exceptional performance are assigned, respectively, Gold, Platinum and Diamond Level. In 2017, thirteen partners reached Diamond Partner level, the top tier for an LS Retail partner, by displaying extraordinary dedication to the LS Retail solutions, and delivering continued customer success. These partners are: Bedege in Sweden; CGI Suomi in Finland; EG in Denmark; K3 Retail Solutions in the UK; KumaVision, Poresy Consulting and TSO-Data in Germany; Real Consulting in Greece; The Createch Group in Canada; AP&T Business Solutions and Think Tribe Technologies in the UAE; Bhatara Progress in Thailand; and NaviWorld Vietnam. Twenty-four LS Retail partners met all the criteria to qualify for Platinum Partner level. Twenty-seven more partners achieved Gold Partner level. During the ceremony, LS Retail also honored the two partners that promoted the LS Retail products and brands most effectively during the past year.
The Best Customer Story award was presented to TCOG for their video of “The baby’s corner”, which effectively showcases how LS Retail products support retailers’ business growth. The Best Marketing and Branding award for 2017 went to NaviWorld Vietnam, for their continued focus and passion in promoting LS Retail. With hard work and exceptional marketing efforts, NaviWorld Vietnam has maintained its LS Retail Diamond Partner level for the second consecutive year. “The LS Retail partner community is the foundation of LS Retail’s worldwide success. In 2016, our community experienced an amazing growth in size and performance. We have never had so many partners achieve Diamond Level before,” says Sigrun Dora Saevinsdottir, Chief Operating Officer at LS Retail. “On behalf of LS Retail, I congratulate all of this year’s Partner Award winners for their achievement, and thank them for their continued loyalty, commitment to LS Retail, and hard work.”
