RapidRMS President Peter Ingram joins SKUxchange Advisory Board
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., (July 26, 2019) – RapidRMS President Peter Ingram has joined the SKUxchange Advisory Board. Ingram is a highly respected industry thought-leader for the Petroleum and C-Store Industry. He has over 30 years experience working with Fortune 500 companies in retail marketing, operations, technology and payments.
Ingram played a pivotal role in pushing the industry forward into new frontiers, having helped develop groundbreaking technologies from pay-at-the-pump to point-of-sale systems, integrations, data capturing and analytics.
RapidRMS provides C-Store retail management solutions via a suite of next-generation technology solutions and enhancements.
“I’m excited to join a world-class team at SKUx that is defining and setting the standard for digital promotional offers across the Petroleum and C-Store Industry, and beyond,” Ingram said. “SKUx is unlocking valuable opportunities for CPG brands and retailers to more effectively engage consumers utilizing their patent-pending technologies encompassing mobile payments, point-of-sale innovations, blockchain serialization and hyper-targeted offers.”
Currently, there are over 150,000 convenience store locations in the United States alone, with an estimated 60% or more of them being single-owner-operated. This fragmentation, along with major issues centered around fraud, reconciliation, and settlement have largely prohibited brands and C-Store operators from running promotional offers and coupon campaigns at scale. Operators are desperate more than ever to incentivize consumers from the pump to inside the store, which is one of the many reasons order-ahead and expanded C-Store food offerings are becoming so prevalent.
“I’ve spent considerable time meeting with key industry players, and the feedback is always the same; brands and retailers are now demanding new solutions and standards for digital offer distribution,” Ingram said. “SKUx is the only company I’m aware of with the technology and team to deliver on what the industry requires at this critical time. The C-Store of the future is simply one facet of the new on-demand ecosystem that will provide consumers with single-touch, friction-less access to products and brands. SKUx and RapidRMS present new and unique opportunities to influence those purchase decisions.”
“Peter will be instrumental in introducing SKUx to some of the most innovative and progressive platforms in the marketplace,” said SKUx co-founder and executive vice president, Kenneth Douglas. “Peter brings not only years of Petro/C-Store expertise, but also SKU-level data analytics and performance-based marketing and loyalty expertise to the SKUx team.”
Ingram also is on the Advisory Board for Soli, which focuses on helping brands reward consumers with carbon offsets tied to individual purchases.
“We are excited and honored to have Peter join our A-List Advisory Board,” Douglas said.
