Oracle+NetSuite, Blueport Commerce, Verenia Champion Unified Commerce
October 12, 2017,
Experts from Oracle+NetSuite, Blueport Commerce and Verenia, who are presenting here at HFN’s Total Home Omnichannel Summit Nov. 1-3, have solutions to help the home industry turn what may now seem like a pipe dream into reality.
During the technology panel, titled “New and Emerging Technologies Helping Retailers and Manufacturers Execute Unified Commerce,” Debbie Austin of Oracle+NetSuite, Carl Prindle of Blueport Commerce and Verenia’s Victorio Pellicano aim to demystify omnichannel retailing and make it a reality.
Austin, senior solution consultant for Oracle+NetSuite, leads her company’s home furnishings and home goods retail initiatives focusing on innovation and industry thought leadership. Previously, Austin worked for a top 100 home furnishings retailer in a variety of operational roles, and spent eight years as an industry consultant to home furnishings retailers in North America to help them achieve operational excellence.
Prindle is founder and CEO of Blueport Commerce, which enables furniture retailers to compete in e-commerce, solving the unique challenges they face selling online. In 1999, Prindle left McKinsey (where he served as consultant and engagement manager for retail, technology, and growth strategy projects) to serve as senior vice president of product development for Furniture.com. Prindle later led the effort to purchase the company’s name and technology, looking to apply learnings from the dot-com boom to the $100 billion brick-and-mortar furniture industry.
Pellicano is founder and CEO of Verenia, a Chicago area cloud CPQ (configure price quote) platform that supports the omnichannel sales efforts of companies that have complex and feature-rich products and services.
HFN’s Total Home Omnichannel Summit—taking place at the Marriott in Delray Beach, Fla.—is an event that explores game-changing strategies, logistics and technologies targeted specifically to home retailers and manufacturers in their quest to offer consumers a frictionless omnichannel experience. Attendees are comprised of retailers, manufacturers and third-party service providers such as technology and logistics companies, research firms and management consultancies.

Many expected 2016 would be a banner year, but the political and economic climate softened consumer confidence. It was also a year consumers spent more lavishly on home remodeling rather than decorating.
