The Challenge.
Making the shoe fit!

“Vocus offered a competitive solution to help Spend-less reach its goals and worked efficiently with the internal team.”

Mark Claessens
IT Manager, Spend-Less Group

Spend-Less Group was under pressure to maintain effective operations in line with rapid growth in the online retail market. The main priority was to improve the efficiency of the company’s legacy IT infrastructure, to enable better use of data and analytics and a more integrated customer experience across online and in-store.

With only two people in the IT team, an added challenge was that Spend-less required a scalable system that could function efficiently at all times, including the busy holiday periods. In retail the customer experience is an important part of the offer, and is formed by the customer’s first encounter with a brand.

With changes to the customer journey from first interest to the point of purchase, Spend-Less needed to make sure its network infrastructure and systems connected the company’s entire offering across multiple channels.
