Finish Line is clearly committed to leading the omni-channel retail transformation. The result of this commitment is an industry leading retail customer experience that we are proud to be associated with.

Contingent Network Services ( has announced the successful completion of a strategic IT project to deploy new in-store technology to Finish Line stores. The Finish Line Inc., a premium retailer of athletic shoes, apparel and accessories, has reinvented its in-store shopping experience at all locations with a total store overhaul and technology refresh that included implementation of innovative mobile POS and interactive kiosk technologies. Contingent provided Finish Line with incremental project and technology experts to manage the in-store deployment for 320 of the 664 sites completed within the overall project.

The benefits of this changeover include better information at the fingertips of store associates, a more convenient mobile checkout process, and an increasingly interactive customer experience for Finish Line customers.

“Contingent has proven their ability to manage a complex deployment project that satisfies our high standards for timeliness and quality,” said Rob Baugh, Director of Store Application Delivery for Finish Line.

To execute the project, Finish Line leveraged Contingent’s On-Demand StoreWorX service which offers full project management, real-time project status visibility, a lifetime workmanship warranty, and a predictable pricing and service level approach that is consistent across all sites.

“Finish Line is clearly committed to leading the omni-channel retail transformation,” said Contingent Senior Director, Phil Fannin. “The result of this commitment is an industry leading retail customer experience that we are proud to be associated with.”

Contingent also continues to provide ongoing On-Demand NetMedX break-fix services for Finish Line in-store technology. Both On-Demand network integration technology services delivered to Finish Line leverage Contingent’s network of over 100,000 highly qualified technicians that can be deployed onsite, with the proper skills, anywhere in North America and in over 130 countries in as little as two hours.
