“After over two decades of enhancing and evolving labor management in the hospitality space, we are proud to announce our official entrance into the retail sector,” said Clinton Anderson, CEO of Fourth. “This expansion marks a significant milestone for our company as we continue to grow strategically. Having worked with several notable companies in the retail industry, we’ve gleaned vital insights and recognized the growing need to provide retailers the same seamless experience our hospitality clients know and trust and will do our part to position them for success.”
