LONDON, NEW YORK, SINGAPORE: 23rd December 2020
BrightBox Group who are a delivery partner for scale-ups to multinationals and government agencies, across the UK and Europe, has announced that Missguided, the fast fashion online retailer, have chosen to partner with them to utilise their Nearshore delivery services to support the continual evolution of their online platform.
Launched in 2009, Missguided specialises in fast fashion for women, and more recently it launched its menswear label Mennace in 2017. Headquartered in Manchester, Missguided has dedicated websites in the USA and Canada, Australia and New Zealand, France, Germany, Ireland, Poland and Spain, plus a pan-European site. At its core Missguided is built on its online platforms, including traditional web and mobile devices. They are continually evolving their omnichannel presence and how it can provide their customers with the best shopping experience.
Missguided chose to partner with BrightBox to utilise their Nearshore service for staff augmentation across Magento and React technologies, bringing the flex capacity they needed to meet the medium-term demands and to also build a capability that they could depend on whilst meeting the competitive pricing requirements.
“We have been talking to BrightBox for a while and are delighted that we have been able to engage with the BrightBox team as our Nearshore resourcing partner for what is critical time for us as we continue to evolve our ecommerce platform.. The BrightBox team have integrated really well with both our Product development teams and our Development leadership team and we know they are there when we need their support”, said John Rignall, IT Director. “Brightbox has landed at pace a nearshore team with the specific skills and experience we were after, and we look forward to continuing to work with them.”
Stuart Houghton, CEO of BrightBox, commented: “Having been speaking to John and his team for a while, we knew it would only be a matter of time before we were able to support them on their journey. Having been a part of the Retail practice back in Accenture, I know how important it is to have the confidence in a resourcing partner to deliver as and when needed. We worked closely with the team at Missguided to understand what they needed from us and then went to work on building and deploying the exact capability. We look forward to continuing to work with Missguided as they continue to push the boundaries of online retailing.”
BrightBox provides both short-term and long-term resourcing options that support an organisation’s delivery and resource capacity needs. This is through nearshore, onshore or a blend of the two, to either simply expand team capability through staff augmentation, or to land teams to carry out project delivery.
