As an accreditation, Investors in People is extremely hard to achieve and even tougher to retain. It has a huge influence on many areas of the K3 Retail business, from strengthening industry relationships to attracting new colleagues. The company’s reputation for delivering the highest quality implementations, along with unrivalled retail knowledge, has seen top Microsoft Dynamics industry experts wanting to join the company, with over 60 new appointments in the last year.
Russell Dorset, Managing Director of K3 Retail says “Our unparalleled experience and knowledge has resulted in many retailers trusting us to lead their technology business transformation projects, including the likes of Kiddicare, Smiffy’s and English Heritage. This has been recognised by the market and numerous experts want to join us to further their careers with the leading Microsoft Dynamics partner in the UK.”
2013 remained a challenging time for many in the retail industry, with the fashion sector investing more than most in new and innovative technology. With a huge amount of experience working with fashion houses, K3 decided the industry, especially the niche and high end fashion segment, needed a reliable, flexible solution that could deliver everything a consumer needs, from concept to consumer. After more than £2.5m worth of investment ax|is fashion is the latest addition to K3’s technology portfolio, putting the company in a strong position for 2014.
Dorset continued, “I am immensely proud of our team at K3. We work in partnership with our customers to deliver truly outstanding results. Our business ethos is built upon our core values – excellence and integrity, which is in our DNA. But it’s our people who make this business a real success and here at K3 Retail we look to recognise, nurture and reward the talented people in our team, which is why we are the UK’s No 1 Microsoft Dynamics partner.”
K3 Retail has had an emphasis on developing new technologies and further strengthening its team to drive efficiency of the sales pipeline and market demand for their retail solutions. As part of this initiative the company has strengthened the team that is focused on the fashion sector, reinforcing the company’s fashion and apparel go–to-market proposition, with new retail sector focussed experts bringing in-depth knowledge and understanding of their respective retail markets.
Dorset concluded, “With our investment in both new talent and solutions and several new projects in the pipeline, I am excited for what 2014 will bring.”
