MONTREAL, Nov. 14, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Lightspeed Commerce Inc. (NYSE | TSX: LSPD) has been selected by David Jones, Australia’s leading premium department store curating the most exclusive global and local brands, as part of its Vision 2025+ strategy to digitize its merchandising and buying process. Launching in January with the women’s international and designer ready-to-wear categories, David Jones will utilize NuORDER Assortments to digitally preview collections, curate assortments and complete orders in collaboration with their brands.
This partnership will accelerate David Jones’ digital transformation efforts and replace manual, time consuming processes like data collection, sizing and order writing.

NuORDER by Lightspeed’s innovative technology will give David Jones the ability to easily view and analyze their assortments across brands, categories, and attributes. Buyers will now be able to take a more customer-centric approach to the range planning process to ensure they are delivering a premium product offering both online and in-store.
Using the platform’s robust tagging and rollup capabilities, David Jones buyers will be able to collaborate with leadership and teams across the organization to review investments in key initiatives, such as exclusives, enhancing their ability to create distinct assortments for their customers.

process will ensure that our teams provide customers with access to a well-planned premium
