top_supplier_retail_2016The Retail Technology Awards Europe (RETA) distinguish retail companies for their implementation of outstanding and innovative information technology solutions in retail. As announced in February, the 2016 RETA award for the “best omnichannel” implementation was handed to Norwegian electronics retailer, Elkjøp.

Now, Informatica was awarded “Top Supplier Retail 2016” by EHI Retail Institute and the German food magazine “Lebensmittelzeitung” for supporting the retailer Elkjøp in their outstanding and awarded omnichannel project.

Elkjøp uses Informatica MDM – Product 360 (PIM), Data Quality, B2B Data Exchange and PowerCenter to shift from an organization focused on selling products to one that is focused on providing the best customer shopping experience.

Thomas Thykjaer, Master Data Architect, Elkjøp says: “Informatica’s solutions make it very simple to automate and validate product data from suppliers and get products to market much faster with better quality data.  This in turn enhances the customer experience across various channels, including online, catalogs, brochures and in stores.”
