The White Company

Founded by Chrissie Rucker MBE over 22 years ago, The White Company has become one of the UK’s fastest growing multi-channel retailers and a leading lifestyle brand with over 56 stores across the UK: including high profile concessions in Harrods and Selfridges, successful e-commerce platforms for both the UK and US audience and in June of this year a New York flagship opened on Fifth Avenue. The quintessentially British brand is now synonymous with transforming houses into homes, creating impeccably stylish, beautifully designed products with British town and country heritage at its core. What started as a range of white essentials for the linen cupboard has gradually grown into the ultimate luxury lifestyle destination for the home, closet and children.

The challenge:

UK retail chain The White Company wanted a better-performing hosting platform for its $100 million annual e-commerce business. And it wanted the flexibility to easily deliver more capacity for peak trading periods and overall business growth, while supporting more agile development activity and reducing the number of suppliers involved in supporting the platform.

The solution:

Our Retail Cloud Team migrated The White Company’s SAP Hybris digital commerce website to our Digital Commerce Channel (DC2): a stable, scalable, high-performing AWS-based solution that can support The White Company’s future business vision. After a short and seamless migration project, we helped launch www.thewhitecompany.com. It’s now under the 24/7 care of our support teams.

Results:

The White Company has seen a 50% rise in platform performance, safe in the knowledge it can increase capacity whenever the need arises. “The Retail Cloud Team managed a seamless migration of our £100 million e-commerce business. Their DC2 solution has provided The White Company with a stable, scalable platform to help us grow our business for many years to come” Phil Burnett, IT Director, The White Company.

The Importance of Making TV Whole Again

The world of television is currently split into two halves - the ‘old’ and the ‘new’. On the ‘old’ side is the long established, predictable, financially dominant analogue/linear content delivery, which has been the dominant method of engaging with television since the 1930s. On the ‘new side’ is the upstart, the digital world, where almost any item of content can be delivered to any device at any time. This...

Making a Success of the New Digital World

  In the last few blogs we’ve discussed the changing nature of the video and broadcast landscape. We’ve discussed issues of digitization and automation, particularly how they pertain to workflow and operational effectiveness. We’ve also highlighted some of Piksel’s products and solutions aimed at addressing these concerns, particularly our Fuse suite of products. However, we are yet to discuss in much...

The Value of Workflow Automation

For as long as there has been a broadcast industry, the human hand has been involved in every step of its development and deployment. As the creeping influence of the digital world has exerted itself more and more in the last decade or so, the demands on the human hand have become more and more severe. Up until relatively recently, the digital video delivery had not been a primary concern compared to the broadcast audience,...
