At Kumo Partners, we take pride in addressing the diverse needs of our clients. Today, we’re thrilled to share how we transformed incident management for a luxury retail brand facing challenges with their Excel-based reporting process. Leveraging the Power Platform, we engineered a tailored solution to streamline operations, enhance efficiency, and elevate the customer experience.

The Challenge Faced by Our Client

Our client, a globally renowned luxury retail brand, relied heavily on Excel for incident reporting—a process fundamental for maintaining store safety and customer service standards. However, as the company expanded, Excel’s limitations became increasingly apparent:

Scalability Issues: The Excel-based system became cumbersome, failing to scale with the company’s growth trajectory.

Inefficiencies: Manual data entry led to errors, while consolidating data across stores proved time-consuming.

Lack of Real-Time Insights: Fragmented data across different sheets hindered real-time analysis, resulting in delayed responses to critical incidents.

Accessibility Challenges: Store workers struggled to update incident reports on-the-go, causing operational lags and potential inaccuracies.

Our Comprehensive Power Platform Solution

Understanding these challenges, our client approached Kumo Partners to modernize their incident reporting process. We proposed and implemented a holistic Power Platform solution, intricately designed with four distinct components tailored to address their unique needs:

1. Store Worker Mobile Incident Reporting PowerApp

Empowering store workers to report incidents directly from the shop floor using their mobile devices. The intuitive UI ensures even the least tech-savvy users can create incidents effortlessly. Key features include camera access for attaching photos, automatic location tracking, and quick access to product details.

2. Office Incident Management Dashboard

A centralized hub for monitoring, managing, and resolving reported incidents. This dashboard facilitates easy categorization, prioritization, and assignment of incidents, fostering collaboration between store and office teams.

3. Real-Time Analytics and Insights

Harnessing the Power Platform’s capabilities to provide real-time insights into incident trends, enabling proactive decision-making and enhancing operational efficiency.
