Pladis Global expedites eCommerce capabilities with e.fundamentals

CHALLENGE

Pladis Global was looking for a retail analytics platform to optimise its eCommerce strategy across online retailers in the UK. 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.

Digital commerce has become one of our key focus areas and to drive growth strategically, we knew we had to upskill our people fast. Working with e.fundamentals and their Customer Success team means we receive in-depth, function-relevant training and finally have a service that helps us get the insights we need to build our competitive advantage online.
