Pladis Global expedites eCommerce capabilities with e.fundamentals

CHALLENGE

They sought a Partner that would deliver actionable insights while maintaining a degree of continuity for their sales reporting and, crucially, provide deep expertise and training to support their eCommerce Business Lead in building digital skills quickly across the commercial frontline teams.
