Global Market Development Center (GMDC) has launched a technology-focused resource portal in partnership with the Center for Advancing Retail & Technology (CART). The platform allows GMDC members to find, learn about service, solution and innovations in retail and connect with providers in its ecosystem.

“GMDC is always looking to provide members with innovative and leading-edge solutions,” says Patrick Spear, president and CEO of GMDC. “With a surge in new technology in recent years the CART platform gives our members the ability to quickly find and understand the latest tools that can support their business strategies and goals.”

In addition to new technologies that connect GMDC members, the CART portal features an evolving number of resources, including case studies, papers and publications that can be searched and downloaded.

“Technology-fueled innovation is transforming and disrupting the retail industry, challenging industry participants to keep pace,” says Gary Hawkins, CEO and founder of CART. “CART is helping the retail industry connect with innovation.”

In partnering with CART and drawing upon their experience working with retailers and solutions providers, GMDC has created a platform that brings the latest service, solution and innovation providers to its retail and supplier members. 

"GMDC realizes the importance of technology to retail today and is helping its members identify and deploy the best solutions for their business," says Hawkins. "Today's fast-paced innovation rewards those who are nimble, and the GMDC team is taking advantage of that to bring leading-edge capabilities to their members."
