AfterWords Navigates the RSPA Sharks at RetailNOW

Tampa, FL (August 15, 2017) – AfterWords announced today that it has successfully navigated its presentation within the Shark Tank at RetailNow, the Retail Solutions Providers Association annual conference. The RetailNow Shark Tank was modeled after the successful TV show of the same name. It provided an opportunity for retail focused software companies to present at the conference and compete for the attention of a panel of industry experts or “Sharks.” The selection process for the show was very competitive and AfterWords was one of just four companies that made the final cut to present at the show.

AfterWords was originally registered for the show to discuss its recently announced partnership with Epson, who selected the AfterWords Customer Experience Software for integration with its OmniLink® Merchant Services (OMS) platform. Epson’s OMS allows retailers to capture and analyze real-time transactional data. The AfterWords platform leverages patent pending technology to create transaction specific surveys sourcing the data provided by Epson’s OmniLink intelligent receipt printer. The information captured is analyzed by the AfterWords software and provides retailers with actionable insights on how to improve their customer experience and increase profitability.

“We were very excited to be asked to participate in RetailNow’s Shark Tank,” said Drew Peloubet, President and CEO of AfterWords. “We gained valuable insight and further validated our mission of using transactional data and smart questions to improve customer experience.”
