Debenhams – store network for the future

Debenhams

We set Debenhams up for the future with a new store network based on our IP VPN, with Ethernet in the first mile, so they could put touch-screen kiosks in stores for a more exciting customer experience.

The new BT network is much the same cost as our old infrastructure, yet it enables us to communicate faster and with greater efficiency. It will also support the rollout of new applications, which will make us more competitive and allow our stores to be more exciting and stimulating for shoppers.”
- Steve Kircher, Information Systems Director, Debenhams

Tesco – cloud contact

Tesco

We implemented a cloud contact centre for Tesco to help them improve their customer service. Handling 90 million minutes of Clubcard and home shopping calls a year, it can be scaled up and down to match call volumes.

Customer service is central to everything we do. We want to make shopping at Tesco simpler and more convenient for our customers, so BT’s great new cloud solution will help us to do that.”
- Mike McNamara, CIO, Tesco

GAME – customer wi-fi

GAME

GAME’s customers expect stores to have wi-fi so they can download actual content. They chose us as their single communications partner. We provided wi-fi with a GAME-branded log-in page giving their customers an experience they couldn’t get in any other store.

Having BT as a strategic partner has been a real boost to our progress this year – the pace at which we were able to work has been of huge benefit.”
- Andy Grainger, IT Director, GAME Retail Ltd
