MONTREAL, QC--(Marketwired - Apr 13, 2017) - Salesfloor, a retail technology platform, was further recognized last week for their impact in innovating retail through technology, by winning the Joe Fresh Fashion Innovation Award at the Canadian Arts and Fashion Awards (CAFA) 2017.
The Joe Fresh Innovation Award is presented annually to a company that is innovating how consumers experience, consume or interact with fashion through technology. Salesfloor was awarded based on the company's ability to push the boundaries of retail innovation and follows in the footsteps of successful past winners, including Frank & Oak.
"We're honored to be recognized by CAFA as a leading retail innovator in Canada," said Oscar Sachs, CEO and co-founder of Salesfloor. "Our mission is to completely revitalize the traditional retail sales associate and better utilize their skills to service customers in today's digital world. Winning this award is proof that our company is accomplishing just that."
CAFA is hosted annually to celebrate outstanding achievement and emerging talent in the Canadian fashion industry. The awards serve to grow a stronger appreciation of Canadian talent, both at home and abroad, with the goal of fostering the next generation of Canadian talent through the awards and year-round economic development initiatives.
"Salesfloor impressed our jury for a number of reasons, but most importantly, they were able to showcase how their company is changing the retail game and poised to continue evolving retail stores and associates in the future," said Vicky Milner, President at CAFA. "We're extremely excited for Salesfloor and look forward to seeing how the company represents Canadian innovation with retailers internationally."
