The Challenge

  • The rate & nature of regulatory change has become too challenging for this expert compliance team that has steered through many product iterations.
  • Their fashion stores sell a wide range of seasonal offerings often covered by new regulations.
  • A good example was the addition of a water bottle as a key part of one recent ‘season’. It’s prominent position in the campaign put the team under pressure when they found out that new additional regulatory requirements had to be dealt with at short notice for a global launch. This level of change is increasingly complex to deal with on a regular basis. 
We as a business are always dealing with significant levels of change. Around the time of Brexit it became obvious we were reaching a tipping point and we needed to add more resources to allow us to maintain our effectiveness.”

The Solution

With Brexit, the UK based retailer needed support in capturing all upcoming regulatory changes, clarifying what they meant for their business, & supporting them in their expansion to new markets or new product areas. 

As part of their extensive search for an appropriate platform, they started using C2P to manage their product compliance requirements. 

C2P primarily helps them solve these three challenges:

  • Monitoring upcoming regulatory changes
  • Researching in relation to new country launches or new regulatory areas
  • Clarifying specific issues through ‘Ask Our Expert’
“In a project where compliance could have been the most difficult step, our team were able to deliver fast and efficiently, made possible by C2P. I don’t even know how we would have opened up in the new market without C2P.”
