Founded in 1981, The Works have grown to become one of the most popular discount stores on the high street with more than 300 stores across the UK, offering a range of discounted books, arts, crafts, toys and much more.
With expansion on going, The Works have grown to become a household name with a widely regarded click and collect online service as well as having more than 500,000 members in their loyalty card programme.
As part of The Works ever growing process of expansion, the discount chain were looking to create a new uniform collection that would be used across all of their UK stores, helping to further enforce The Works brand. The garments needed to be a certain style and colour to match The Works’ brand image as well as having a platform that can be easily utilised by all of their outlets on a regular basis.
Having provided The Works with staff uniforms for their distribution warehouse teams as well as promotional clothing for various promotions since 2013, we are approached by The Works to discuss the possibility of providing the chain with all of their staff uniform requirements for every UK store. After speaking with The Works, it was quickly apparent that our wardrobe management platform; My Workwear Express, would be the perfect solution for their needs.
We were able to create their own dedicated online store in the form of a dedicated portal which held all of their staff uniform requirements, allowing The Works to quickly purchase all of their workwear requirements for every branch throughout the UK. They were able to grant access based on branch or user levels, restrict budgets and garment allowances, quickly reorder as well as gaining access to detailed reporting and order history. The platform has continued to provide The Works with all of their staff uniform needs and we look forward to continuing to develop this budding relationship as we move forward.
