The expertise and reputation of CodeBoxx when it comes to technological capabilities of digital commerce is well established, the results speak for themselves. This expertise will be put to use as part of the Le Panier Bleu project, this initiative launched following the COVID-19 crisis last March to boost local commerce in Quebec. Le Panier Bleu chose CodeBoxx and its CEO Nicolas Genest, to steer the project on the capabilities of digital commerce, one of the 8 major projects intended to propel the retail commerce in Quebec. The experience acquired by M.Genest around the world with major brands of digital commerce makes him and his team a wise choice to lead the boat on this very important project for the future of Quebec.
“In my vision and from my experience working in technology for 20 years, commerce and consumption are among those disciplines which have benefited the most from the innovation and advancement of the Internet. For a reason that I can’t explain myself, the pace of this evolution has not been the same in Quebec and I want to help put the right technologies in front of the real challenges that Quebec producers and tradespeople face. The solutions exist … commerce is a problem that is considered to be solved in the technology sphere. “says Nicolas Genest, CEO of CodeBoxx.
These 8 projects will serve to pool Québec expertise and know-how in order to accelerate digital transformation and propel the retail commerce in Québec to a higher level. The current crisis has accelerated the need to act pragmatically. Le Panier Bleu has thus announced the start of eight major projects to reflect on the future of retail and give it the necessary levers to catch up on the digital gap. The first mandate of Mr.Genest and his team linked to the presidency of this site will be the production of a report which will serve as a roadmap for the sector and which will then be distributed in order to concretely help Quebec businesses.
“We have identified competent people who have a detailed knowledge of one or more facets of the retail ecosystem. Our site presidents each bring complementary expertise to the Board of Le Panier Bleu. I would like to thank their voluntary commitment to contribute to the development of the entire sector and help Quebec businesses compete with the global giants. “said Mr. Alain Dumas, CEO of Le Panier Bleu.
