Who are Quorso? 

Quorso is an intelligent store management platform that is revolutionizing the performance process in retail organisations (among other verticals). As digital has taken over many parts of retail (especially marketing), the process for managing store performance, prioritizing opportunities at store level, taking action, measuring impact and scaling success remains analog. Countless reports, conversations and emails mean performance is often managed by gut. Quorso’s system digitizes this process not just for store managers but for executives at all levels of the organization.
