Retail Technology Innovation Hub has been set up by Scott Thompson, former Editor of Retail Systems, with the aim of becoming the leading newswire and information hub for the global retail technology community.

Over the past 20 years, he has held senior editorial positions at and contributed to a number of business and technology-related publications, and has covered the retail and retail technology sectors in-depth.

We believe there is a gap in the market for a source of independent retail technology news, analysis and research, written by people with a genuine passion for this fast moving sector. We will go beyond the press releases and marketing hype, talk to retailers, tech suppliers, trade associations, analysts and consultants and tackle all the industry topics that matter.

For the past few months, the team at Retail Technology Innovation Hub have been quietly working on the website, adding content, getting feedback from a select group of users and growing our unique monthly visitors and social media presence. We're now ready to officially launch.

Retail Technology Innovation Hub will cover multi-channel retail technology news from around the world. We will also publish a wide range of features, Q&As, opinion pieces, white papers and case studies.
