Making Morrisons Agile and disruptive

Data can enable you to understand and responding to customer, supply and market trends in real-time.

We helped Morrisons to ensure that their legacy estate was able to cope with the increasing demands that its business would be placing on it, and to be able to continuously harness and exploit data to maximum business advantage.


The Problem

  • Legacy systems that were struggling to support the rapidly changing demands of the business and its customers across more than 500 locations
  • The need to drive efficiency into the management of a complex retail supply chain with a large network of stores, warehouses and suppliers
  • Updating operations across stores, warehouses and head offices that necessitated the replacement of virtually all hardware, software and infrastructure across the business
  • Vast amounts of data captured, deriving value from which was difficult and cumbersome

The Solution

  • Building a comprehensive Data warehouse
  • Delivering of 25+ complex data projects
  • Implementing tools to increase analytical capability
  • Developing dashboards to provide visibility of complex data preparation and analysis

The Outcome

  • Improved decision making across the supply chain, delivering £10,000 savings in week one
  • Reduced costs by £2.3m per year
  • Brought 30+ customer insight dashboards to all 500 stores

Mastek are always very positive, always got great ideas, certainly ideas outside of the area in which they're just engaged upon. They add value in that respect."
