Entering and winning awards is really important to us. It demonstrates the vast achievements of the teams involved in our projects, and showcases the work that we have carried out with our customers. It demonstrates our passion for what we do, and recognises that we are delivering operational improvements, providing competitive advantage and cost efficiencies for our customers. This is why we are delighted to announce that we have been shortlisted for ‘Project of the Year’ at the Retail Week Technology Awards for our work with Morrisons clothing range Nutmeg.
This project enabled Morrisons to bring it’s own branded clothing line to market, from concept to launch with entire systems and infrastructure live in just 6 months. Morrisons had a strategic view to develop a home-grown clothing line in 2013, so launched ‘Nutmeg’ as a clothing brand for the family, with initial launch of the childrenswear range.
We were chosen with our supply chain solution ‘Merret’ as the ideal partner based on our unique experience in this area. Nutmeg chose the Merret application for scalability and omnichannel retailing functionality, in addition to managed IT services from us to host the IT infrastructure for the operation to support the entire user base.
Merret is our omnichannel supply chain solution that covers all aspects of stock control, retail supply and business information through it’s single stock pool management. It offers retailers scalability enabling the technology to grow with the needs and size of the retail operation.
The first phase of the project was to launch the childrenswear range in Morrisons stores on 21st March 2013, which was to quickly rise to several hundred stores within a year. The achievements within this project have exceeded all original expectations.
We find out whether we have been successful on June 11th, 2014, at the Hilton Hotel, Park Lane, London. Fingers crossed everyone!
