Nailing your compliance whilst reopening isn’t mission impossible. You’ve heard the rumors right: at SimpliField, we’ve partnered with our clients to adapt and thrive in the new retail normal.


In 2020, from sales to compliance, retailers have had to turn things on their head, sometimes to merely survive. Now that the new retail normal is taking shape, retail managers are having to manage reopenings very closely, from afar, and often with less resources than they’ve ever had before.


Here’s an overview of how our client, a global ready-to-wear and toys retailer for children, has adapted to the new retail normal with SimpliField. Read more in the full case study 👉 here .


A Solid Partnership with SimpliField since 2019


In 2019, the brand chose SimpliField to gain efficiency and agility. Operations were digitized to eliminate inefficient manual procedures and improve internal communications. Since then, SimpliField lies at the heart of the brand’s daily operations and is successfully implemented in 430 stores, in France, Switzerland and the USA. 


3 Challenges to Tackle: Lack of Communication, Visibility & Compliance


To efficiently reopen all retail locations, each subject to different restrictions, our client needed to react quickly and adequately by addressing 3 major pain points:

  • The impossibility of conducting in-person store visits limited the ability to communicate and share information, impeding precise and agile field monitoring.

  • Regional Directors could not guarantee compliance to new government norms, nor make sure these were correctly implemented at all times.

  • Store directors were preoccupied with the efficacy of managing the reopening of stores from afar.

Flawless Reopenings with Instant Communications, Training and Data Consolidation

With SimpliField, this leading retailer was able to communicate in real-time and gain visibility to make informed decisions based on data.
