Case Study #1
Iprole was asked
to review a small project covering forty-two stores in eighteen states,
that involved the removal, reset, and installation of various new
shelf components as part of a new-line product launch. The critical
issue for this project was the time sensitivity of the rollout. Our
initial window for completing the transition was fourteen days.
We actively reviewed
the project as it was originally proposed to us, and formulated a
tentative schedule for implementation. After the initial process
was complete, we were asked to change the schedule three additional
times for various reasons, including the implementation of black
out dates, 6-day work weeks, and store directed time restrictions.
With less than a week to begin, we revamped the schedule to meet
A team of Iprole installers
met the client at the site of the first proto-type store and conducted
the initial install. With the clients' assistance and input, we tested
and developed the most effective process for implementing the rollout
to assure accurate and timely completion. As with all rollouts, we
created a comprehensive set of installation instructions that we
sent out to each of the installers scheduled to be involved in the
After our project managers
completed the task of scheduling stores, creating store sign-offs,
and various travel-related issues, we kicked off the project per
our final plan. Each store in the rollout was visited either before
the store opened, or after the store closed. We completed 100% of
the rollout in eleven days.
Upon completion of the project,
Iprole submitted a complete project binder with a photo gallery of
each store, original sign-off's, and final invoice. The client gave
us a call to tell us that they reviewed the entire project over a
five-hour period and had no questions.
