Software brand will oversee the arrivals at September’s Hot 100 party.
EPoS specialist Pursuit Software has been revealed as the latest company to partner with Professional Jeweller’s Hot 100, following in the footsteps of buying group The Company of Master Jewellers (CMJ) and jewellery brands Ti Sento and Clogau Gold.
Pursuit will oversee the invitations and arrivals at this September’s Hot 100 party – where 2012’s Hot 100 will be both revealed and celebrated – using special technology to record the arrival of guests.
The Professional Jeweller Hot 100 celebrates the 100 most influential and forward-thinking members of the jewellery industry through insightful profiles and original photography taken by the lead photographers of Harpers Bazaar Arabia and L’Officiel magazine.
The book and the list will be unveiled at the exclusive invite-only Hot 100 party, which will take place at the Art Deco-designed Freemasons Hall in London’s Covent Garden on September 4.
Mike Burns, managing director of Pursuit Software, said: “Prompted by the power and potential of the latest wave of advances in PoS and ecommerce tools, vast sections of the industry now regard information technology as taking a centre-stage role in business thinking.
“For Pursuit Software therefore, there could be no better time to have the honour of becoming a Professional Jeweller Hot 100 partner. Impressively, as well as strategically-astute multiples, we are seeing fifth- and sixth-generation family-run jewellers at the forefront when it comes to embracing change.”
Hot 100 partner Pursuit Software joins gold partner Ti Sento and fellow sponsor the CMJ, which has returned as principle partner for a third year, and Clogau Gold which will be returning to the Hot 100 event for a second year with its popular Hot 100 Best Dressed competition.
Burns added: “As the leading innovator in jewellery IT – and continuing to make substantial investments to maintain our lead – it is a great privilege to take our place with the elite of retailers and suppliers that make up the Hot 100.”
