Looking to drive increased ecommerce sales for their summer (and then winter) ranges, FatFace wanted to run a standalone online marketing campaign.
We partnered with FatFace and a local PR company to deliver a truly unique ecommerce marketing campaign.

After implementing a new ERP and WMS system at the same time, we experienced some teething problems with our network and internet reliability. We worked closely with Rad who quickly evaluated our infrastructure, requirements and systems as a whole. He dealt directly with our software vendor, courier and Distribution Centre team to provide viable solutions that were tailored to our needs. Following his work, we were able to decrease our despatch time by more than 1/3.
Professional, knowledgeable and solution orientated.
They were instrumental in helping us, setup and configure a continuous delivery process pipeline using Jenkins in AWS Cloud. This have enabled us to build and deploy at a faster rate with shorter gaps between production deployment. They are very knowledgeable with everything security, Devops and AWS.
They have helped develop our business continuity management strategy, helped us meet our technical obligations in the heavily regulated environment of financial services and supported our work at the bleeding edge of high-performance cloud computing. Rad and his team support our engineers so that they can concentrate on developing software rather than spending their time patching, doing updates and worrying about security. The work they did on migrating us from a dedicated hardware environment to a state-of-the-art, highly-available, super-resilient and cheaper virtualised environment was nothing short of superhuman.
We keep our customers happy by focusing on real world improvements in important metrics and nothing else.
