We are delighted to announce that K3 Retail and Sue Ryder have been selected as finalists in the Retail Systems retail charity partnership of the year award category.

K3 are supporting Sue Ryder as they replace their old legacy systems with a Microsoft Dynamics retail solution to help them manage their 450 retail stores more efficiently with volunteer friendly systems, allowing staff to focus their time on what’s important to them, raising funds to provide the incredible care they are known for.

The project is a real team effort, led by K3 Retail and supported by strong partnerships delivering an end to end solution designed specifically with the charity’s needs in mind – the Microsoft Dynamics and LS Retail solution is fully managed and cloud enabled, combining K3 Retail’s software solution and K3 Starcom’s hosted service with BMc Azurri’s specialist Gift Aid and IT Services together with payments expert Verifone, AGR Dynamics’ inventory management and BI from TargIT.
