Children's apparel retailer Carter's has signed a licence agreement for the new, packaged Connected Retailer Merchandising solution from software firm NSB.

Carter's, an NSB client for more than 10 years, runs end-to-end NSB solutions to support their retail operations.

"NSB is a full-service provider, offering fully integrated solutions across the enterprise as well as the best practices needed to get the most out of them," Carter's director of retail systems Joe Inglis said.

"We feel their strong background in retail systems and the service they've delivered to us over the years provide the solid foundation we're looking for to support the critical migration of our enterprise systems."

With improved architecture, Connected Retailer Merchandising 3.0 gives retailers the ability to automate and synchronise all key merchandising functions within a single application.

Carter's operates more than 170 retail stores throughout the United States.
