MOUNT ARLINGTON, N.J. — Retail home furnishings software provider Storis, founded by current CEO and President Don Surdoval and the late Ira Bakst, is marking its 25th anniversary this year.
In a release, the retail technology company noted its advances since its 1989 start, including the development of online real-time systems processing, enhanced warehouse management systems, integrated business-to-consumer e-commerce processing, business intelligence data mining analytics, mobile, point-of-sale apps and a cloud subscription platform.
"It's been a privilege to serve an elite group of retailers, both large and small, and fulfill their many changing requirements of the industry," Surdoval said a statement.
Surdoval attributed the company's success to "outstanding clients and employees who have provided their expertise to Storis," and noted that the company has an average tenured employment of nine years, reflecting "the importance placed on maintaining a highly professional and skilled team to deliver the best in product and services."
