JustEnough InDemand - Volume 3 Issue 4
E-Commerce and M-Commerce On the Rise

Year in Review: A Message From JustEnough CEO Malcolm Buxton

Last year proved that consumers are continuing to drive change in the retail industry, while new technologies and selling channels are emerging at a head-spinning rate. Retailers are trying to keep up with their customers, who are demanding a seamless shopping environment - whether they are shopping online or in store. Last year will be remembered for strong online spending trends as e-commerce growth continued to significantly exceed the growth of total retail*.

In 2011, we also saw a sharp increase in use of mobile apps on smartphones and tablets. Consumers today are empowered to shop around for the best price, find promotions and discount codes, investigate product features and then purchase items easily from any location and at any time that suits them. Nearly unlimited access to this type of information has resulted in increased consumer price sensitivity and rapidly evolving buying behaviors, which affect both retailers and the distributors that serve them.

To keep pace with these changes, companies are increasingly turning to best-in-class planning solutions. JustEnough is fast-becoming the go-to provider for today's retailers and distributors seeking flexible, accurate, easy-to-use and quick-to-implement planning solutions. Since our solutions share a common architecture, database and user interface and are built with the end user in mind, we are uniquely positioned to provide easy-to-use, affordable solutions that offer a low total cost of ownership and fast return on investment.

Please take a minute to read through some of the 2011 highlights here at JustEnough:

Increase in the number of retailers that selected JustEnough, including Abercrombie & Fitch, Estée Lauder and SuperGroup Plc.
