We worked closely with the director of digital, internal project team, BORN's creative team, to review each touchpoint for MontBlanc's customers.

We worked closely with the director of digital and head of technology to create a business case for this greenfield project. Aligning the interest of various department stakeholders that covers: Logistics, Customer Service, Retail operations, E-commerce store and International team. We created a product vision and high-level roadmap and led a scrum team of 9 (developer, QA/BA) to executive the MVP.

NEW MARKET MVP LAUNCH
Now TV is a startup company within a multinational broadcasting conglomerate.
In 2016, Now TV was looking to expand its online presence to the european markets.
We worked closely with the UK product managers to understand the key functionalities of the UK site. Those core functions were then reintroduced onto the international platform. New market-specific features were also introduced. Launching an international market requires coordination of various other aspects such as legal, marketing, communication, customer service and accessibility issues. This launch was all about pulling different threads, aligning priorities in a scaled agile framework amongst large delivery teams.
The result: An MVP was launched for the first international market within 6 months time frame. Scope of the delivery was optimised to ensure the deadline was met and key features were intact to deliver sufficient value for the end customer.
LUXURY MARKETPLACE MVP BUILT

We educated the client's team on agile delivery methods and solved key challenges on customising hybris out of box functionalities to tailor towards the unique needs of the marketplace.
A typical challenge in any agile delivery is to balance stakeholder requirements virus timeline and budget available to deliver core features. Hence having a disciplined scrum approach helps to safeguard the capacity of the team.
The result: a transactional commerce marketplace MVP in the required time frame. Later on style.com was merged with an internal project and became today’s Farfetch.

The business identified the importance of leveraging that trend to further increase its brand awareness. Thus implementing social ID sign on function could make the user journey a lot smoother during login, social sharing, and commenting activities.
