How we brought 100 stores to market after a takeover – in just seven days.

Thanks to an acquisition, our customer was able to take over 100 additional stores into their site network from a neighboring country. Time was short, but the final contract signings still had to be awaited for the launch. In addition to parallel preparations for the go-live, all of the customer’s internal processes had to be scaled from ten to over one hundred stores in a very short time, including accounting, IT and logistics. Poor documentation and chaotic conditions in the branches further complicated the integration. Thanks to FRISTA’s structured preparation and rapid recruitment of eight full-time employees, the transformation was able to begin immediately after the contract was signed.

The go-live of all branches was then accomplished in less than seven days. For this purpose, FRISTA provided the personnel in all positions and supervised the additional mobilization of resources from various departments and projects. In record time, the new branches were successfully opened and seamlessly integrated into the client’s processes – without delays or major setbacks.
FRISTA enabled our client’s management to focus on preparing for the sale instead of adjusting the back-office to the expansion. In this particular case, FRISTA not only guaranteed the smooth growth and seamless integration for a quick market entry – it also achieved significant cost savings for the client.
