Recent Case Studies

Point of sale diagnostic and optimisation for a leading jewelry and watches retail group - France

This retailer was facing losses in both profit and sales for two years prior to our project. We launched a detailed business diagnostic in order to assess opportunities and threats to the retail formats. We identified some quick wins and set up an action plan to improve the two retail concepts in the area of offer management, stock management, visual merchandising techniques and in-store communication. 

Market mapping and benchmarking - Italy

For each of the brands of this fashion manufacturer and retailer with different market positions, we launched a competition benchmark and a detailed market mapping to help product management teams build their collections for the future seasons.

Offer strategy review and new tools implementation - Spain

The objectives of the project was to increase the stores turnover and the average spent per visitor in this leading European amusement park. We reviewed the retail offer strategy, re-organised the stores offer and implemented new visual merchandising techniques. We worked with the operations and buying teams to build new buying tools and methods, and finally we worked on the assortment of each product family and stores to build more appropriate assortment for the retail stores.

Offer management for a womenswear retailer - France

This retailer sells its products through multibrand stores as well as in his own stores. Managing the retail assortment was a challenge. We helped them to develop an assortment suited to his stores, integrating the customer profile, the stores configuration. We built and implemented offer management tools including assortment planning and in-season management tools to optimise product availability and the store offer.

Product launch of a premium brand in the USA

We helped an entrepreneur launch a premium olive oil brand in the US after a thorough competition and market analysis. We built the business plan and established first business contacts with wholesalers and retailers to reference and sell products on the territory.

Store opening of a luxury goods showroom - UK

We worked alongside Camouflage, a British design agency, that created a luxurious showroom for a personal items and gifts brand created by two very gifted English artists specialising in lifecasting products. Prior to the showroom opening, we helped the two owners set up the right price list for the goods.
