“Our goal is to understand and deliver on the needs of the business. As an organization, we needed a partner who could deliver best in class retail functionality in the cloud. We chose Oracle to deliver a scalable and flexible solution,” said Jim Dunlap, chief information officer, Kendra Scott.

“Kendra Scott is a rising star in the jewelry business in large part because it focuses on delivering a unique product, with unmatched customer service. By deploying a modern retail platform, the growing boutique chain can operationalize this focus; placing the customer at the center of decision-making,” said Mike Webster, senior vice president and general manager, Oracle Retail.

Kendra Scott chose Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN) Gold level member, Logic information Systems to deploy Oracle Retail Merchandising Cloud Service, Oracle Retail Insights Cloud Service, Oracle Retail Xstore Point-of-Service and Oracle Retail Customer Engagement Cloud Service.

“Kendra Scott was experiencing exponential growth, which required a faster time to market with new boutiques. During the initiative, named ‘Project Shine,’ our goal was to help the retailer quickly adopt the new technology and industry best practices to support their business and meet key business priorities as they scaled. Working in close collaboration with the customer and Oracle, we were able to configure a next-generation platform to fuel Kendra Scott’s continued growth,” said Amber Naqvi, president, Logic Information System.

Wilkerson Testimonials

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
