Following the receipt of all entries, the judging process for the Checkout NRSAs will commence. The judging panel will comprise acknowledged retail commentators and consultants as well as a number of industry experts.
Where possible, all entries should outline how the business in question has delivered cost savings and efficiency improvements for the retailer that it works with, using examples if possible.
In the case of the New Store Build categories, entries should take the form of a case study, outlining the before, during and after associated with the project. The judging process is expected to be completed by the end of October, at which time all finalists will be contacted.
