History
It all started because of online shopping. That's not entirely true, but the retail industry has changed. As customers compared more products and pricing than ever before, the tried-and-true merchandising fulfillment processes failed. Seeing the gap in automating non-inventory infrastructures as well as products, the NeadWerx team challenged ourselves to design a logic-based resource that combines merchants, merchandise and merchandising intelligence into a single, simplified system.
We call it MerchLogix. You'll call it the tool you can't believe you lived without.
