  • eXPD8 have a specialised team of Technical Support Persons who were responsible for the full range change in 306 stores across the country. These members of the team are specifically trained in how to safely secure any technology device in store and install demo modes etc.
  • Range Change planning started -12 weeks prior to the Range Change – this included creation of a Critical Path and weekly meetings with all relevant stakeholders including Buyers and Technology Suppliers.
  • eXPD8 were responsible for reviewing all new Technology Lines going into stores and the security requirements for each one. Each store was allocated its own “Pick List” and security solution was ordered by eXPD8 specific to the products, store type and planogram ranged.
  • For any new Technology Lines, eXPD8 liaised directly with the security providers to find an appropriate solution to secure the device in store. In some circumstances a bespoke security solution was devised and implemented successfully in stores.
  • eXPD8 received all POS and security solution into their Fulfilment Station and then created store and Merchandiser specific packs for our specially trained Technical Support Persons to walk into store for their visit.
  • Within the 10 day period, new Technology lines were installed in stores with the relevant security solution, demo modes enabled and the correct POS displayed.
  • eXPD8 Central Office reviewed compliance data daily, reviewing that all equipment was installed in store and any reactive measures taken if necessary.
