Case Study: Luxury brand retailer

Luxury Retailer Uses Power Platform to Modernize their Incident Reporting Process

A mobile-friendly Power Platform solution for one of the largest luxury retailer brands.

Business Situation

A Heavy Reliance on a Cumbersome Excel Process

A globally renowned luxury retail brand had a pressing challenge. Their incident reporting process, fundamental for maintaining store safety and customer service standards, relied heavily on Excel. While Excel is a versatile tool, when it comes to complex, multi-step processes like incident reporting in a dynamic retail environment, it posed several challenges.

Key Challenges

Scalability Issues: As Fendi expanded, the Excel-based process became cumbersome, failing to scale with the company’s growth

Inefficiencies: In-store incidents were being reported via text messaging, emails, and other disconnected mediums. Manual data entry led to errors, and consolidating data across stores was time-consuming. 

Lack of Real-Time Insights: With data spread across different sheets, real-time analysis was nearly impossible, delaying responses to critical incidents.

No Mobile Solution: Store workers couldn’t update the incident reports on-the-go, causing lags and potential inaccuracies.

Business Solution

Fendi approached Kumo Partners to help them leap into the modern age with a comprehensive Power Platform solution

Kumo Partners proposed and implemented a holistic Power Platform solution, intricately designed with four distinct components tailored for Fendi’s unique needs.
