The Co-operative Does The Double At Retail Week Supply Chain Awards

The Co-operative Group has won the prestigious Supply Chain Project of the Year and the Grand Prix accolade at the first ever Retail Week Supply Chain Awards.

The Group won the Supply Chain Project of the Year Award, the biggest of the night, for the integration of Somerfield’s supply chain and the transformation of Lea Green distribution centre in St Helens. This award was shared with technology partner Manhattan Associates whose supply chain optimisation solutions played a key enabling role in the project.

However, the real success story of the night was the Group walking away with Grand Prix Award. This special award, which is not open to general entry but is conferred by the event’s organisers, was awarded by the judges who felt the Group had achieved a significant amount of change to the organisation, while also delivering a massive benefit to the enlarged Food shops business.

The Co-operative’s Supply Chain and Information Systems teams worked together to deliver the integration of the two organisations’ supply chains, which included a number of tactical solutions, such as including more fairtrade food and transport optimisation that has resulted in the significant reduction in transportation costs and has also removed more than 5,800 tonnes of CO2 per annum.

Mark Hale, the Group’s Director of Food Retail Information Systems, said: “These awards are recognition of all the fantastic people we have in our business and the hard work they put in to transform our supply chain for the benefit of our stores and customers.”

More than 400 of the UK’s top retailers attended the inaugural industry event held at the Grosvenor House Hotel, Park Lane, London, which was hosted by comedian Russell Kane.

Trevor Ashworth, the Group’s Director of Food Retail Supply Chain, added:“This is a great collective achievement for both the Group and our partners within our supply chain. We’ve delivered a fantastic result, which was a major milestone in our integration plan for the Somerfield business, which also delivered huge business benefits.”

The Co-operative worked closely with a number of key partners, including Manhattan Associates, BT, Zetes and IBM, to successfully deliver the integration programme without impacting availability in its stores.

This follows a clear demand from customers with traffic from the Debenhams website accessed from mobile phones increasing by a massive 225% from August 2011 compared to the same time last year.

Complementing the existing Debenhams app on the iPhone, Android and Nokia as well as an iPhone app for the Beauty Club loyalty scheme, the new Debenhams mobile site means that Debenhams is now fully mobile – with a mobile offering suitable for every handset available on the market and the first high street retailer to offer a complete range of mobile offerings – combining mobile apps and a designated mobile site.

The Debenhams mobile site was developed entirely in house and offers the full functionality of the website including store locations and opening hours when on the move. Customers can also watch Debenhams TV through YouTube as well as become a fan on Facebook through the mobile site.

Simon Forster, director for Debenhams.com said: “Mobile continues to form a large part of our digital strategy, as an area which shows no sign of slowing down. We have seen a clear demand for shopping on the go. The addition of the m-site to our mobile offering means that no customer is excluded.”

Debenhams is also championing new technology linked to smartphones, with the addition of initiatives such as Aurasma, bringing together TV and print media, and virtual shopping with the integration of QR codes into smaller stores in order to extend the range on offer.

In the first six months, the Debenhams iPhone app has been downloaded over 500,000 times and has taken over £1million in sales.

Ernest Jones Launches Ernest Jones Love & Life

Ernest Jones is changing the way it describes itself – the jewellery and watch brand will now be known as Ernest Jones: Love & Life. Still maintaining its specialisation in diamond jewellery, luxury watch brands and fashion brands, Ernest Jones is focusing its attention on the special occasions behind customers’ purchases – for those love and life occasions.

The new description of ‘Love & Life’ is about celebrating those moments that matter in life, whatever the occasion, weddings, achievements, birthdays, or new arrivals. By introducing ‘Ernest Jones: Love & Life,’ the jeweller is keen to re-emphasise the importance of the emotional connection with the brand and the reasons why customers purchase diamonds, watches and fashion brands.

Customers can experience this now at Ernest Jones: Love & Life Exeter and the new Westfield Stratford City store which are already providing customers with a new shopping experience with more space for one to one customer service and a more luxurious interior décor.

Signet and Ernest Jones marketing director Colin Wagstaffe said: “Our new proposition ‘Love & Life’ reflects the fact that every item of precious jewellery or prestige timepiece that we sell to our customers is bought to mark an important moment that matters to them in life.

This can range from occasions like an engagement, wedding or Christmas to a big birthday, a milestone anniversary, the arrival of a newborn or a treat to oneself for that hard-earned promotion.

We wanted a simple yet meaningful proposition and description of the brand which demonstrates the role that Ernest Jones proudly plays in peoples’ lives. We are here for their love and for their life.”

The high street jeweller wants to be recognised by customers as an affordable luxury shopping destination – somewhere that their personal story and experience is valued.Jewellery is a thoughtful purchase, and a special one that customers take time to make a decision about. When a customer buys an engagement ring from Ernest Jones, the brand becomes part of that customer’s love and life journey, associated with their happy times and essentially part of those significant moments that matter to them. By emphasising the importance of the customer’s individual journey through good service, beautiful products and an inspiring shopping environment, the brand aims for customers to return to Ernest Jones for future gifts or special occasions to come.

To further explain the Ernest Jones new definition, more personal lifestyle imagery capturing life’s important moments that customers can relate to will be displayed along with emotive messaging within POS, in-store brochures, online and emails.

Ernest Jones’ expert staff are trained to the highest standards and offer bespoke services in store including the workshop for bespoke designs and Jewellery and watch repair – Atelier. The Atelier service offers a variety of prestige watch and jewellery services carried out by highly skilled Atelier technicians. They use classic techniques and state of the art equipment to repair, service and maintain timepieces and jewellery to the highest standard. All Ernest Jones stores have a dedicated Atelier technician either onsite or within the local area.

After 60 years – a diamond anniversary – of working with many prestigious brands, Ernest Jones brings customers watch brands including Cartier, Rolex, Breitling and Tag Heuer. Ernest Jones has a range of diamond, fashion and gift brands including bead and charm giant Chamilia, DKNY, Ted Baker and specialist diamond jewellery brands LeVian, Tolkowsky and Leo diamond.
