Galleria Retail Technology Solutions, a global leader in retail and vendor

The solution, which is part of Galleria’s evolving Cloud Platform, enables
instant access to real-time information via a mobile device for increased
collaboration between vendor, retailer and field personnel for enhanced space

Ensuring that its retail technology remains in keeping with an increasingly

enhanced by ensuring that consumers see the products they wish to purchase, at
the right time, in the right place and in the right quantity to suit their
needs. This also helps to improve the retailer’s bottom-line through maximized

and fixtures, along with layout scanning and reporting, the portal enables

assortments, planograms and images for on-demand, permission-based viewing

“Retailers will also realize cost benefits through limited infrastructure cost
and cloud hosting at times when data is not required, which removes the need
