Dechert-Hampe Featured in New ECRM Conference

NORTHBROOK, IL, May 3, 2010
– ECRM has announced that a Dechert-Hampe presentation will be featured at a new event: The“Checklane and Front End EPPS” conference on June 15-17, 2010 in Adventura, Florida. The event is the first event of its kind to focus on the checklane category, and Ray Jones of Dechert-Hampe will present "Front-End Focus" which is a comprehensive industry study of shopper behavior and retailer sales results at the front-end checkout. It outlines a set of Best Practices designed to maximize performance and enhance the shopper experience.

"The front end checkout has remained virtually unchanged for the past 50 years," says Joseph Tarnowski, senior editor at Progressive Grocer. "We want to talk about its future and discuss how the checkout is managed, checkout designs, front-end displays, front-end technology and more with retailers attending this event."

We are really excited about the Checklane and Front End event and think the category has great potential. There is overwhelming information that points to the need for this type of event; it's a 37 billion dollar category without a dedicated event. This is an excellent opportunity for retailers and checklane suppliers to make a valuable connection and make the most of this category," explained Ed Reilly of ECRM.
