Vista Technology Support Sponsors the Retail Tech Show 2024

The 2024 Retail Tech Show was well worth the wait. As one of this year’s sponsors, Vista Technology Support welcomed enthusiastic attendees to The View, our balcony venue where friendly conversation and delicious coffee accompanied a spectacular ‘vista’ of the entire event. Over the course of the two days, we shared our service offerings to continuous footfall, and provided demos of our latest service, Vista | Panorama, which was officially launched at the event.    

It is great to have the opportunity for in-person conversations. An event like the Retail Tech Show enables busy calendars to align for two days, where enquires can be met with detailed answers that lead to lasting partnerships. Our commitment to being a solution driven, IT managed services company is recognised across the industry, and our team fielded an array of enquiries that answered questions from CIOs, IT managers, procurement teams, directors of IT security and IT consultants.  

As always, the event itself was abuzz with activity. The stands looked great, attendees were engaged, and the atmosphere was a collection of sounds that from a distance, resonated as crowds do; an assembly of communication. Individually, these conversations symbolised the purpose of the event – solving customer problems. At Vista, each one of our team leaders answered enquiries pertaining to their expertise, ensuring every question found a resolution. This type of holistic approach represents the foundation of Vista’s IT Managed Services, and echoes throughout each of our departments. 


Vista | Panorama is our latest offering and was officially launched at the Retail Tech Show 2024. Set to revolutionise the way traditional IT services are provided today, Panorama provides IT executives with observability of every key component within their Traditional Physical IT and Cloud infrastructure, and its performance highlighting deficiencies; like a beacon shining a light on weaknesses within a business’s entire IT infrastructure. 

Service fragmentation is a common theme in IT infrastructure support, especially as retail and hospitality businesses invest heavily in Cloud, SaaS, SD Wan as part of digital transformation strategies. All require stable and security internet connectivity; we therefore can include ISPs into the mix. Until now, no single owner manages the modern end-to-end IT and cloud architecture, each service is effectively managed through individual contractual SLAs and remote management tools for each of the services, which leaves IT departments and service desks to manage multiple resolvers and any issues through a process of elimination.   

With proactive problem solving before the technology user or customer is impacted, Panorama dramatically reduces the number of IT related incidents and subsequent IT costs.  

Vista’s CEO James Pepper says, 

“It was great to play a part in the success that is the Retail Technology Show, over the two days we met with so many people. Everyone I met at the show was there to look at a range of technologies and to discuss implementation projects or ongoing IT support. In the evening, we hosted our annual networking event, this year the event was full to capacity, and we enjoyed continuing discussions into the night.”  

The Hand and Flower event was a great success, as new friendships were formed, and the harmony of existing connections continued to thrive. Sometimes business dealings need smart attire, while others need a nice glass of red wine and some tasty appetizers. Congratulations to those who won the events’ raffle, where amazing prizes were up for grabs, including an Apple Watch, Airpods, iPad, Meta Quest 2 and a Stream Deck.
