Drawing on our expertise in retailing and IT, Retail Assist Project Services are uniquely placed to plan, resource and manage projects and programmes, taking responsibility to deliver on time and within budget, by providing expert people and best practice within project management.
We've already done it successfully across a range of retail-specific and IT-related projects for clients such as World Duty Free, Paperchase, Selfridges and Aurora Fashions.
We helped them understand their business requirements, specified and developed changes to business processes, procedures and IT systems, and implemented changes successfully into their business.
Our team of Consultants, Project Managers, Business and Systems Analysts and Trainers, are all experienced in retail, so they understand the relevant pressures, opportunities, risks and potential business rewards.
Using a retail-specific methodology that combines PRINCE2 with our real-life industry experience, we have assisted in system selection, design and implementation by providing hands-on project management and support in areas such as EPoS, Merchandise and Finance applications; reporting tools and disciplines including:
Technical projects: network infrastructure deployment, WAN and LAN; server design and deployment; domain and email migration; server virtualisation and IT disaster recovery strategies
Business analysis: retail business process mapping and system improvements.
Retail Industry Specific: PCI DSS; Chip and PIN; payment card settlement systems; loyalty solutions; gift cards and footfall counting systems
We are able to manage a complete project from end-to-end, carrying the ultimate responsibility for its success. Alternatively, we can manage just a subset as part of your team.
