Digital Transformation for Sweets & Snacks Wholesaler
We were contacted by a UK-based sweets and snacks company looking to modernise their business and reach new customers. We saw this as an opportunity to demonstrate our expertise in guiding digital transformations.

Accurate and relevant data
Conducting comprehensive market research was a key challenge for our team. It was essential to ensure that the data collected was accurate and relevant to the project goals. We put much effort into designing and implementing effective research methods and carefully analysed data to draw meaningful insights.
Determining the changes
Based on market research findings, we needed to determine the most effective changes in order to modernise the client's brand and appeal to a broader audience. This required careful data analysis and strategic intelligence, and we worked closely with the client to ensure that we met their goals.
Ensuring a smooth digitalisation
Transitioning key processes from old-school manual systems to cloud-based software solutions was a technical challenge that required careful planning and execution. We worked closely with the client to ensure that the transition was smooth and that the new systems were tested and correctly configured.
Communicating new brand identity to consumers
Once the branding elements were updated, it was important to effectively communicate the company's new brand identity to consumers. We developed a clear and consistent messaging plan across all channels, including packaging, promotional materials, and marketing campaigns, to ensure that the brand was effectively communicated to the target audience.
Our team conducted a comprehensive market research study to understand the needs and preferences of consumers in the industry. We utilised a mixed methods approach, combining both qualitative and quantitative research methods, to gather a wide range of data and insights. Through interviews, focus groups, and surveys, we gathered in-depth insights into consumers' experiences and perspectives. We also conducted online research and reviewed existing research studies and industry reports to get a broad understanding of trends and issues in the industry.
Hence, we applied customer journey mapping and SWOT analysis frameworks to identify areas for improvement and opportunities for growth. We assisted the client in refining its target audience and redesigning packaging that would stand out on store shelves and appeal to consumers. We also helped them transition key processes from manual systems to cloud-based software solutions, such as customer relationship management (CRM) tools. This allowed greater data usage efficiency and the ability to take advantage of automation capabilities to streamline tasks like order processing and inventory tracking.
In addition to modernising the company's processes, we updated the branding elements, including the logo and packaging designs and promotional materials like flyers and web banners through our design partners. These updates were tailored to specific target audiences identified through our market research and were designed to capture the attention of potential customers and drive sales.
Throughout the project, we focused on achieving the defined goals and objectives and developed a detailed plan of action to ensure that tasks were completed on schedule and within budget. We communicated effectively with all team members and stakeholders and used systems to stay organised and track progress. And when necessary, we sought expert advice in order to ensure that the project was being implemented in the most effective and efficient way possible.
