Plexure Receives Double Accolades In 24 Hours

It’s been a fantastic 24 hours for Plexure, with an international award presented in San Francisco overnight (see attached) and being announced as the second fastest growing company on the Deloittes Fast 50 Index with a growth rate of almost 1200%.

Plexure CEO Scott Bradley said the two acknowledgements of Plexure’s success coming in such a short time had been enormously rewarding for the Plexure team, who had worked very hard in the last couple of years to develop innovative solutions for the world’s major retailers.

“In the last couple of years we have constantly pushed the boundaries, using our unique IOT driven CRM platform to deliver seamless customer experiences across multiple digital channels in the real world.   It is great to see our customers recognise the contribution we’ve been able to make to their business success, which is what has generated this great growth story for us,” Mr Bradley said.

Mr Bradley was in San Francisco to receive the Current GE Partner Innovation Award, where he received news of Plexure’s Number Two ranking on the Deloitte Fast 50.

“It’s been a great day for Plexure and for our team around the world,” Mr Bradley said.

IoT-Driven CRM Leader Receives Current’s Partner Innovation Award for Delivering

Enhanced Customer Experience at Retailers


SAN FRANCISCO (November 17, 2016) – Plexure, the global leader in IoT-driven CRM, announced today its win of the Current, powered by GE Partner Innovation Award. Plexure CEO Scott Bradley accepted the award on behalf of the company from Dave Bartlett, chief technology officer for Current, during GE’s fourth annual premier Industrial Internet event, Minds + Machines.

Plexure leverages digital insights, real-world environmental conditions and in-store activity to automate and improve the way brands interact and engage their customers in real-time. The award recognizes Plexure’s most recent advances, such as integrating with Current’s intelligent LED lighting systems to deliver improved customer engagement in-store, which allows retailers to track the uplift of sales by customers using this technology. With the addition of Current’s Indoor Positioning API, Plexure is able to pinpoint a customer's in-store location to within four inches and send optimized content to digital displays and electronic price tags when the customer is right alongside.

Plexure’s Bradley commented, “We are honored to receive this award as innovation is at the heart of our mission. Plexure uses IoT orchestration to link the physical and digital worlds and provide customers with personalized and optimized transactions. In turn, this offers retailers a measurable uplift in sales and a proven return on their technology investment.”

Current’s Bartlett said, “Plexure’s unique approach to customer relationship management, along with its forward-thinking use of Current’s Indoor Positioning API, are innovation in action. As Current builds out our partner ecosystem we are eager to partner with companies like Plexure that are dedicated to disrupting and transforming the way the world works.”

“Linking engagement to ‘Point of Sale’ data, Plexure gives retailers key insights about customer behaviors that can be used to increase basket value and ultimately, the lifetime value of the customer,” Bradley explained. “Our partnership with Current is strategic to transforming the customer experience and enabling retail brands to improve transactions and generate positive results.”
