According to a press release from Yoobic, the digital platform boosts in-store compliance to 85% while easing operational administration, improving team camaraderie, and generating economic efficiencies.

The retailer currently employs over than 500 people who use the Yoobic service. To date, more than 35,000 task-based operations were performed, and nearly 400,000 store photographs have been shared internally, considerably enhancing overall transparency throughout its store estate.

“The platform has increased synergy across the organisation, not just in terms of operational management, but also in terms of creating team and economic efficiencies.” “Once the staff saw how simple it is to use and began to realise the results, it was tremendously inspiring to them,” Garcia de Frutos explained.

“We are completely satisfied with the outcome of our collaboration with Desigual.” The brand has embraced mobile technology to empower the most critical aspect of their business – its frontline – realising that giving the correct tools, delivered in the flow of work, is the key to achieving stronger commercial returns,” Haiat said.
