The Solution

The Challenge

As an IT consulting firm, Vinco would view the retail industry as a dynamic and rapidly evolving sector, full of both challenges and opportunities. Technological advancements, including e-commerce, mobile technology, AI, and IoT, are reshaping consumer expectations and behaviors. Retailers are required to innovate continually, to maintain customer engagement, loyalty, and market relevance.

The Process

We partnered with the executive and legal team to work through all commercial paper and supported final contracts, onboarding, challenges and eventual successful execution.

We have continued to support all parties as changes have come up and provided facilitation so all stakeholders are heard and valued. The expected outcomes were met and exceeded and the business is thriving from an empowered IT services group. Most of all, the technical debt has been paid off!

Vinco met with Morning Star Living and all their stakeholders with objectives to understand what the desired outcomes were. What is the goal for all areas of the business and what was not being delivered in the contract?

We surveyed the market, interviewed 9 providers and narrowed it down based on data and supporting metrics, in service of the client. Finalists were judged equally and in full transparency with the ultimate decision in the client’s hands.
