GRAND HAVEN, Mich.Jan. 17, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Harbor Retail today announced partnership acquisition of URway Holdings, including the placement of Ed Crowley, Kiosk Hall of Fame recipient, as Senior Director, Technology Development & Engineering.

As the first of many new technology focused announcements for Harbor in 2019, the acquisition of URway Holdings significantly advances the in-house capabilities of self service, interactive fixtures, kiosks and IoT experiential marketplace design.

The combination of these advanced in-house capabilities and personal leadership of Crowley immediately created several wins for Harbor across customer experience, brand story and merchandising through customised integrated technology solutions for brands of magnitude, advancing in-store demand generation and product sales.

“Crowley’s leadership and industry pedigree impact the current and future state of retail in an extremely significant manner,” said Walter Miranda, president of Harbor Retail. “Harbor has a laser sharp focus on the impact of technology within retail design + build. There is too much noise in retail tech and not enough relevant and rich value. The addition of Crowley and URway assets enrich our POV and approach to integrated tech in retail in a meaningful way to our clients and prospects.”
