Assemble, a software consultancy for retailers, helps fulfill that need assisting retailers to ‘unleash the potential of technology.’ Guided by its core values and rich domain expertise in the retail industry, Assemble holds a vested interest in its customers’ businesses and creates better experiences that help generate a higher return on investment. The company boasts over a decade of experience building web applications and technology-driven services, such as sales and marketing integrations, full-stack development and automation, and custom plugins tool creation.
“When retailers face the challenge to go digital, we come in with all the intricate pieces and parts of technology they would require for this transition,” states Jeremy Norberg, President at Assemble.
To begin the shift from traditional to digital, Assemble undertakes an assessment, where retailers are asked to categorize their business requirements as either mission statements or challenges. For instance, a mission could be to record double growth over the next quarter, while a challenge could be to address low conversion rates. The clear outline of the mission or the challenge helps Assemble list out the business areas they would most likely affect—revenue, cost of sold goods, and operating expenses—to determine the net income. “Upon precise analysis of these three key metrics, our team measures the expected change in ROI and profitability to ensure a continued growth and investment in the business,” explains Norberg

One client that benefited highly from Assemble’s customer-attentive services was a Fortune 50 retail company that generated a large number of marketing assets and collateral, both digital and physical. The retail company already had a team of thousands of designers and marched ahead to hire more fresh talent right out of design schools. While the client gradually turned production, specific, low efficiency production, the rising cost caught up to them. The client asked the Assemble team to assist through the challenge of maintaining higher efficiency of marketing designs while saving money. “We worked for six months to come up with the solution, which helped the client save $3.6 million in the subsequent year. Now, they are saving $3 million a quarter! And their team can focus on creating value, rather than mindless asset generation," mentions Norberg.
As the company strides abreast of the technology evolution in the retail space, on a concluding note, Norberg says, “Retail is one of those industries that has embraced technology since day zero. Yet, it has not necessarily done it strategically. We see that the maturation point is far from within the retail market’s grasp, and we strive to work with clients to help them achieve that.”
