What the partnership was about – Defining and implementing a retail business strategy for e-commerce mail order, merchandising and management control, improving profitability, reducing costs, and providing a platform for future expansion.
What was the WOW factor – This was the University of Brightons first ever retail KTP – by implementing rigorous retail systems and operational processes it delivered phenomenal increase in turnover (26% in-programme) and profit margin (106% in-programme), exceeding the 3 year post-programme forecasts put forward in the proposal during the project.
