HCM City (PRWEB) April 2, 2007
TRG International CEO, Rick Yvanovich and SVP of Retail Systems, Lisa Littin, travelled to Hong Kong this week to attend a two-day Regional Conference hosted by Island Pacific and Retail Pro, and attended by all the company's Asia Pacific regional partners. Island Pacific, Inc. (IPIN.PK), a global leader in retail POS and Merchandising software, has recently partnered with TRG International, a leading solutions provider in Vietnam, to localise and offer the Vietnamese Version of Retail Pro in Vietnam.
"We are really excited about our partnership with Island Pacific and Retail Pro" said Lisa. "At the conference, Island Pacific made it clear to TRG International and to the other regional partners that they are dedicated to providing the support that we need to deliver a great product to our customers."
Lisa believes that the product is the ideal solution for businesses in Vietnam's retail sector, currently the third-fastest growing in the world. She said: "The retail environment is growing at such a significant pace in Vietnam, and we at TRG International believe Retail Pro is the right product at the right time to provide retailers in Vietnam the ability to leapfrog their operations to world class standard. The regional conference in Hong Kong gave us a chance to listen and learn from our counterparts in both developed and developing countries about the successes and challenges that their retail customers have faced and are facing. We also learned how global giants who are rolling out hundreds of stores across the region have used Retail Pro to fuel their successful expansion. We at TRG International can take this knowledge and turn it into powerful solutions to share with our clients in Vietnam."
TRG International has already begun a soft launch of the Retail Pro product into the Vietnam market and is scheduled to hard launch the product in May 2007.
According to Rick Yvanovich, TRG International sees an immediate need for a product to help local retailers in Vietnam manage their business. "Retailers in Vietnam are finding that their current systems are ill-equipped to handle the increase in retail activity estimated to take place in the coming years" he said.
"Companies are coming to us at TRG International looking for immediate solutions -- the urgency stems from the realisation that in order to compete with the foreign retailers that will be flooding the market soon, they need to drastically improve their systems and procedures. We believe Retail Pro, the leading retail management system on the market, is just the solution that Vietnam retailers need to enable them to compete."
