Mohit Paul, Chief Commercial Officer at Extenda Retail commented: “The creation of Hii Retail was founded on Extenda Retail’s 40 years’ worth of experience in delivering value to market-leading retailers across Europe. We understand that retail is evolving quickly and monolithic, legacy technologies are no longer fit-for-purpose because they are far too expensive and time-consuming to adapt to today’s new reality.
“Hii Retail provides simple, innovative, component-based technologies delivered quickly on the Google Cloud Platform (GCP). And delivery via GCP means that these components can be orchestrated to deliver agile and enjoyable shopping experiences for consumers consistently across multiple sales channels.”
Alberto Tortosa, Head of PMO & Store Operations at Iberia Sports Retail Group said: “We embarked on this journey to find a unified retail platform to provide us with the ability to create compelling shopping experiences for customers, regardless of how they shop, where they shop and when they shop. And at the same time, the omnichannel offer has to be fiscally compliant with trading standards in the countries in which we operate.
“It was clear to us that a deep-domain cloud-native solution would deliver the flexibility and agility we are seeking, and with our existing relationship with Google, Extenda Retail’s “Hii Retail” solution built on Google Cloud was the winning choice for our current and future needs.”
David Segarra, COO at JD Iberia & Real Estate & International, commented: “Our stores are excited about the journey with Extenda Retail, and we look forward to implementing amazing experiences for our customers. We are transforming the business and strong partners such as Extenda Retail are key to our future success. With Hii Retail, we will be able to empower our staff and serve our customers the way they prefer today – and in the future.”
Ted Schönbeck, Head of Cloud Technology at Google, commented: “We are delighted to partner with ISRG and Extenda Retail to deliver the most innovative solution in consumer retailing today. Extenda Retail’s Hii Retail platform is the winning choice for European retailers who require market-leading flexibility, speed and security. We look forward to continuing the journey with Extenda Retail as they deliver an exciting roadmap for the future of consumer shopping experience.”
