N Brown Wins Technology Project of the Year at the Retail Systems Awards

N Brown Group plc, the inclusive fashion and homeware digital retail platform, won the Technology Project of the Year award at the Retail Systems Awards last night for the delivery of its new Product Information Management (‘PIM’) system.

Taking place at London’s Marriot Grosvenor Square, the prestigious event celebrates excellence and innovation in the retail sector and the awards saw N Brown crowned a winner alongside other retailers including Sainsbury’s, Superdrug and EE.

The PIM system is one of the Group’s key transformational priorities and is designed to improve the customer experience by providing N Brown customers with better product descriptions across product display pages, including information on sizing and fit, and fabric. Greater consistency and accuracy in pre-purchase communications with customers across all channels will help to better inform their purchases. This in turn is expected to reduce return rates, leading to an improved customer experience
overall.

Nuno Miller, COO at N Brown, said:
“I am proud of everything our teams have achieved and I’m delighted that their efforts have been recognised with this award. The delivery of our new PIM system was an important milestone in the Group’s digital transformation journey and key to our proposition to further improve the customer experience. Being awarded Technology Project of the Year is fantastic acknowledgement of this work.”

Chris Williamson, Group Director of Technology at N Brown, said:
“This achievement is a testament to the incredible hard work and dedication of our amazing teams. A special thanks to our partners Tata Consultancy Services in making this a reality. Your commitment and expertise have been instrumental in this success.”

Martin Sheerin, Director of Digital Product at N Brown, added:
“I’m delighted that we won this award and for the recognition of the incredible hard work of our teams. It’s also another sign of the great progress that is being made here at N Brown and the confidence we now have in delivering technology for our colleagues and customers, and transforming our business and ways of working.”
