ONVU Technologies has appointed Nigel Ashman as President for its Retail division with the responsibility of driving the strategy and growth plans for the company.
Mr. Ashman was hired to spearhead the drive into global retail markets by partnering with retailers to enable ONVU Retail’s video technology deliver a deeper understanding of consumer behaviour and the impact it has within physical retail stores and their operational metrics.

In 2011, Mr Ashman started his own business leveraging IP video and bespoke software solutions for loss prevention to major global retail brands.
Working with major high street retailers to radically optimise store performance, ONVU Retail benefits from pioneering video intelligence to interpret consumer behaviour within the store environment.

As Mr Ashman explained, “ONVU Retail’s solution uses intelligence and empathy to allow physical retailers to deploy the kind of insight about their stock, customers, and operational needs that online stores have generally had a better visibility on. Bricks and mortar retail does have advantages over the online world, if it is able to appreciate and leverage these insights effectively, and use them to create actionable strategies.”

All built on the same ethos of taking overarching challenges facing vertical markets and designing empathy led solutions to assist in alleviating those issues.
