The partnership between Openbravo and Nimbl will provide retail companies with new opportunities to expand their range of available services and solutions.

FREMONT, CA: The digital revolution has made it imperative for the retail sector to implement the latest technologies and chase their customers to maintain a competitive edge in the market. To aid the retail industry in this process, Openbravo, a cloud-based omnichannel software vendor for agile and innovative retailing recently formed a strategic alliance with Nimbl, a global provider of consulting, solution development, and digital transformation services.

Openbravo is a global omnichannel software vendor for agile and innovative retailing. Its commerce cloud offers retail software solutions with comprehensive and supply chain capabilities. Developed on a flexible mobile technology platform, it enables retailers to implement innovation and efficiency into their processes. CIOReview Magazine recently named the company as one of the “20 Most Promising Retail Solution Providers – 2019.”.

Nimbl, on the other hand, possesses several years of expertise in bolstering the digital transformation of retail organizations. It has aided its clients in identifying novel opportunities for growth, providing innovative services and benefits ranging from the boardroom to supply chain. The company offers its clients with the flexibility of global providers, the commitment of local partners, and the competence of an experienced advisor.

Javier Rodríguez, Industry Lead at Nimbl, said, “We were looking for the right partner to address our retail customers with a unique proposition. After evaluating many alternatives, we see in Openbravo the ideal platform, equipped with wide functional coverage for today’s omnichannel retail and a level of flexibility far superior to other solutions in the market. This, together with our extensive experience in SAP solutions, to which Openbravo already has connectors, confirms the high combined value that we can bring to the market.”

Retailers can significantly benefit from the extensive expertise of both companies. The alliance will grant them access to a broad portfolio of services and solutions through the incorporation of Openbravo’s omnichannel platforms with SAP retail solutions. The key features are designed to assist customers within the store, facilitating mobile payments or self-paid terminals for quick checkouts. Also, it offers enhanced agility and innovation capacity to the customers.

Francesc Comas, COO of Openbravo, expressed his excitement by saying, “We are very pleased with this new strategic agreement. Our global presence, customer profile, and the characteristics of our omnichannel platform allow us to uniquely position ourselves to work together with a partner at the level of Nimbl. We believe that leading market retailers can benefit greatly from this alliance.”
