Cincinnati, OH, March 12, 2014 --(PR.com)-- Ascendum Solutions, a leading global information technology development company, will be demonstrating the capabilities of their proprietary state-of-the-art retail technology platform, called ROADS™ (Real-time Offer and Analytics Deployment System), at the Retail Business Technology Expo, 11 and 12 March, 2014, in London, UK. “RBTE is the perfect platform for us to showcase our innovation, agility, and expertise in developing solutions that drive high multiples for our clients,” said Vora Group Chairman Mahendra Vora.

Both companies have collaborated extensively to develop various retail applications which utilize the ROADS platform and the latest social-mobile technologies.
