Aton Allspark Ibérica, this is the name of the NewCo based in Barcelona, combines Allspark’s consulting know-how, which since 2008 has been developing projects based on the Cegid Retail unified commerce platform, with Aton’s experience and solutions for retail management and point of sale support.
The NewCo will take over all of Cegid Ibèrica’s current staff and ongoing activities, ensuring continuity and future developments for Spanish and Portuguese retailers, according to a joint market development plan shared with Cegid.
“Allspark supports retail companies with strategic consulting and operational services through its long-standing partnership with Cegid. Working side by side with Aton in Italy has brought to light our affinity of values and complementary offerings. We have therefore decided to join forces to be the reference in the digital transition for Spanish and Portuguese retailers as well” says Nicola Fiore, CEO of Allspark.
“Aton Allspark Ibérica stems from the common desire to strengthen Cegid’s presence and offer in Iberia by increasing investments and services for the Retail and Fashion markets in Spain and Portugal,” says Giorgio De Nardi, CEO of Aton. “Aton offers retailers its experience in end-to-end projects for the digitalisation of point-of-sale management processes with innovative software solution: Cegid Retail Unified Commerce Platform, .onRetail (Mobile First) for retail management, Vendor Management Inventory services, the shop logistics optimisation and the creation of a unique shopping experience through the use of RFID technology, just to name a few. Our focus is on consultancy and value-added services for the customer’s business“.
The handover from Cegid to NewCo Aton AllSpark Ibérica will take place in April, and to accomplish all the objectives, the Partner Aton Allspark Ibérica will take onboard Cegid staff to ensure the continuity of the service to Iberian retailers.
