Narvar has once again been named to Fast Company’s Most Innovative Companies list, this year ranked #3 in the Logistics category! As we come to the one-year anniversary of sheltering-in-place due to the pandemic, it’s gratifying to receive this prestigious recognition for our efforts to support retailers early in the crisis.
“We’re honored to have been named a World’s Most Innovative Company for a second time by Fast Company,” said Amit Sharma, Founder & CEO of Narvar. “I’m proud of our team’s agility to adapt to the ever-changing business environment. At Narvar, we’ll continue to foster this culture of innovation and provide the most engaging customer experience for the customers we serve around the world.”
The pandemic accelerated the shift to online shopping by 5 years in just 6 months, as well as hastening contraction of the physical store footprint. Retailers had to revisit their short- and long-term strategies to fit this new landscape and, in many cases, prioritize their digital transformation efforts. Narvar helped retailers maintain operations during a period when many stores were inaccessible by expanding our platform with timely new features that will continue to be valuable for years to come.
Here are a few examples which are representative of the impact we’ve seen across our client base:
