The Common Denominator on Stores’ Hot 100 list: Technology for Hypergrowth nuBridges’ Customers Make the Grade

Share Article

eBusiness found to be the common denominator for 1-in-6 of the Stores' Hot 100 retailers.

Only the fastest-growing retailers make the Stores Hot 100 list. How do they do it? They exploit eBusiness technology to give customers what they want, when they want it.

According to Gary Palgon, senior director of connectivity and security solutions at nuBridges, “Most retailers hit a point where significant growth is no longer possible without some way to communicate with their trading partners more efficiently and securely.”

One in six of this year’s Hot 100 retailers use nuBridges software to connect and collaborate electronically, replacing paper with instant communication via the Internet.

Size doesn’t matter.

Think big-time eBusiness is only for the industry giants? Think again. A specialty clothing chain, a farm equipment supplier – and yes, the world’s largest retailer, all use Atlanta-based nuBridges’ connectivity software to link with their business partners and move critical information securely over the Internet. Contradicting typical IT deployments, each of the companies implemented without a headache.

“Becoming eBusiness-capable was a breeze,” according to the IT director at one big-box retailer. “It couldn’t have been easier. We started small, ramped overnight, cut our costs in half – and more importantly, kept our trading partners happy.”

According to industry analysts at Gartner, the market research firm, “Information sharing among supply chain partners can accelerate revenue growth by as much as 20 percent.” That’s good news for retailers looking to close 2006 strong and make the Stores list in 2007.
