Dr Jack Jing, Executive Vice President of Suning Technology Group, said: "As the largest omni-channel retailer in China, we know that smart retail is the key to attracting and satisfying consumers in the digitalized era. We want to work with more partners in the industry to open up access to data, tech and tools, which can help them better understand their users and achieve business goals."

Regarded as the 'Brain' of Smart Retail – the strategy is in essence an open-platform model through which partners can access Suning's portfolio of long-term accumulated technology capabilities and omni-channel operation experience.
The strategy offers the industrial practitioners such as manufacturers, SME retailers and even tech developers or service providers an integrated solution to enhance both operational efficiencies and costumer experience.
After nearly 30 years of both online and offline retail exploration, Suning now owns 10,000+ stores and 600 million + customers with full-scenario layout, and strong technology capability as its empowerment. Suning will continues to combine its industry experience with its smart retail strategy to boost industry digitalization.
