  (June 13, 2012)

AUSTIN, Texas (PRWEB) June 13, 2012

Starmount, a software provider focused on helping retailers optimize the shopper experience, is proud to announce its sponsorship of the second annual 2012 RIS News CIO of the Year Awards. The awards honor the most innovative and strategic CIOs in the retail industry, and recognize the vision and effort of these leaders to drive their organizations to new levels of differentiation and performance in a fast-paced, rapidly changing environment.

New technologies are rewriting the rules for retailers, and CIOs are on the forefront of redefining customer engagement," said Jerry Rightmer, president, Starmount. "We're pleased to sponsor the CIO of the Year event in appreciation of the vital role that these individuals play in transforming the retail industry through innovative technologies such as mobile solutions."

Leading retailers such as Urban Outfitters, REI and many others have deployed Starmount solutions to bring the power of mobile and the richness of the Web into the store, allowing them to create more personalized, dynamic and relevant interactions with their customers.

Starmount solutions include Starmount Engage, a mobile selling assistant that can process transactions from anywhere on the store floor, and Starmount Connect, an open shopper engagement platform that unifies rich online data from multiple sources into a single stream, empowering store associates with the knowledge and tools needed to keep the brick-and-mortar shopping experience competitive and convert in-store shoppers into buyers.

Starmounts mobile selling and omni-channel engagement tools empower store associates to meet customers in the aisle to provide a more consultative experience. Store associates can use the mobile selling assistant to conduct product research, suggest similar or complementary items, determine current inventory at that location or nearby locations, and search for products based on a variety of criteria, among many other features. The application runs native on the Apple® iPod Touch, iPhone, iPad or other mobile devices.

The winners of RIS News CIO of the Year will be named during a special ceremony at the 11th Annual Retail Executive Summit, June 13-15 at the Grand Del Mar Resort in Del Mar, CA.
