Hosted by the “Intercontinental” hotel in Bucharest, the event was addressed to professionals interested in solutions for streamlining retail operations, such as cash management, process optimization and resource efficiency, using technology.

Held over half a day, RetailTech 2019 included two sessions of presentations and debates: in the first, various methods, technologies and solutions were presented to streamline retail processes, such as mobile terminals, cash management and optimization of collection processes, as well as monitoring, verification systems and automation implemented in retail.
In the second session of the conference, the representatives of the retail chains presented the trends in this industry, case studies and experiences in the implementation of various technologies, such as applications for streamlining sales processes, integration of new technologies in current operations to improve the customer experience, integrate and monitor customer operations and platforms for a real-time image. Retailers and specialists present exhibited innovative information and equipment, demonstrating that technology significantly facilitates operational activity, and the dynamic pace of evolution of this sector can be a major advantage for traders, if properly exploited.
Participant in the first panel of debates, Dor Bujor Padureanu, CEO & founder of Magister, gave a presentation on “ Technological trends in modern retail ”, Offering a series of information of wide interest for traders (and not only):
