Wexford-based software company Scurri has been named among the top 40 retail tech start-ups operating globally.

The second annual discovery report, published by the Retail Week World Retail Congress' (RWRC) recognises start-ups powering retail innovation at a time when it is needed most.

The start-ups are supporting over 30 retailers and brands including Tesco, M&S, Nespresso and Asos.

Virtual try-on assistants, vertical farming, 'save now, buy later’ payments and in-store marketing robots are just some of the technology solutions that feature in the report.

Rory O’Connor, CEO and Founder of Scurri, which connects and optimises the eCommerce ordering, shipping, and delivery process, said they are delighted to be ranked alongside some great companies.

"eCommerce has grown strongly since the start of the pandemic but is getting more complicated with more service offerings being provided.

"Retail tech plays a pivotal role in helping companies survive these challenges," he said.
