Are you facing these business pains?

  • Your Store Estate is unmeasured, you are unaware or have limited knowledge of how efficient or inefficient your processes and workforce are.
  • The business is on a journey of change. However, the impact on this change is unquantified at store and the impact that it has on sales, service, operations and people.
  • The business understands that processes are inefficient and could be completed more productively. However, you don’t know what to address first or what will deliver the best Return on Investment.
  • Store Teams are working at full capacity. However, you don’t know if the activities they are completing or the time they spend completing them are adding value to your business and customers.
  • Your employees tell you that your processes and tasks at store are inefficient. However, you don’t know what to fix, how to fix it or what to tackle first.
  • Change is required at store to enhance the customer journey and improve business performance. However, you don’t know how to implement it without harming capacity or incurring additional labour cost.
