ThinkTime has the most advanced Retail Task Management platform on the market today - Steve Levy, President of ThinkTime

Doug Spiron, a seasoned retail industry leader who served a succession of influential roles at companies including Sears and Home Depot, has been named Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing for ThinkTime. “Our company is growing, both in terms of product and customer base,” says ThinkTime President Steve Levy. “It’s time for our leadership team to grow as well.”

Spiron joined the company in early 2016 as a sales executive, and quickly immersed himself in ThinkTime’s Retail Task Management. “I’ve always been interested in systematizing operational problems,” he says. “How do I report on the data better, how do I use systems to make the process better? ThinkTime is designed to do just that.”

Spiron’s experience using technology to improve day-to-day operations had an immediate impact at ThinkTime. “Doug is unique because he has an incredibly rich retail background and has used technology every step of the way,” says Levy. “He understands how features like repeat tasks and employee verification can move the needle for our clients.”

With more than 30 years of experience, Spiron brings an intimate knowledge of the challenges retailers face to his new role with ThinkTime. “The reality is, people get stuck in doing things a certain way,” Spiron says. “They’re stuck with multiple systems and multiple processes that they are very tied to. The challenge for me is helping them see past that, to what they could achieve if they adopted a comprehensive system like ThinkTime.

“To unlock that potential, you need great listening and observation skills. We will be continuously engaged with our customers, timing new product releases to their needs.”

In his new role, Spiron will oversee the development of a marketing strategy that evolves with ThinkTime’s dynamic software. Sales efforts will include bringing ThinkTime’s multilingual capacity to the global marketplace. “Every retailer is completely different,” Spiron says. “It’s not good enough to have an off-the-shelf solution. ThinkTime is adaptable to everybody’s unique way of doing business. We’ll get to know you and then we’ll optimize the system to help you optimize your business.”

Levy agrees. “ThinkTime has the most advanced Retail Task Management platform on the market today. Doug understands the potential our tools have to improve store performance for every retailer.”

ThinkTime will participate in this year’s NextPoint conference in Phoenix, AZ, but Spiron is clear there’s no need to wait. “Don’t wait; we want to talk to you today so we can get to know your business right away.” Request a demo at http://www.thinktime.com/demo
