The number 21 is an important number for many reasons. It can win you a lot of money in Blackjack (or cost you dearly), provide coming of age benefits, is the name of one of Adele’s best albums, and is a triangular number. For all of you non-nerds out there, that means it is the sum of the 1st 6 whole numbers (1+2+3+4+5+6). It also denotes the number of years ERS has been in business.
Our success has not always come easy, but it is our incredible team, partners and especially our engaged clients that have enabled us able to grow over the last 2 decades. Internally we still feel and act as a startup. We are constantly challenging ourselves to do better. We are always looking for more feature-rich and efficient ways of providing our services.
I’m so proud of the work our team has done, which lead to us being named a Top Retail AI Solutions Provider by Retail Tech Insights. This past year we focused on injecting our solutions with more intelligence. We’ve adopted new platforms to deliver reports, forecasts and custom applications faster and with less resources. Constantly improving is one of the reasons the average length of our client engagement is over 10 years.
Founded on Education
ERS was founded to provide resources, education and solutions for manufacturers and retailers. This year we significantly increased the number of professionals and companies who are interested in what we do. We gained several thousand new subscribers and followers to our newsletters and free planning resources. If aren’t a subscriber, please sign up. You’ll learn a lot and it’s free!
So, thank you to the entire ERS team and partners- in the US and overseas- who give their best every day. Thank you to our clients and followers. It is through your feedback that we continue to improve what we do, innovate with new products and build stronger relationships.
