Spanish online sports equipment retailer Deporvillage has extended its partnership with cloud-based software-as-a-service platform Orisha | Openbravo to expedite its omnichannel strategy.
Deporvillage, owned by British retailer JD Sports, will leverage Orisha | Openbravo’s solutions in its physical retail stores.
These solutions will support sales activities, returns, inventories and restocking, as well as price and promotion management across the retailer’s stores.
The retailer has so far opened two physical stores in Alcorcón and Granada, Spain, with plans for more openings in 2024.
Deporvillage co-CEO José Pérez-Milá stated: “The challenge of a physical opening, when we are already leading the online sports segment, is a firm commitment to omnichannel.
“Trust in Orisha | Openbravo and Practics, and having a differentiating solution for stores in the market today, made it an easy decision for us. As a result of its extensive functionality and ease of adoption, we have already been able to move our store plan forward successfully.”
