Leading Fashion Retailer
Over the years, Icom have built and maintained successful partnerships with some of the world's leading brands, namely a large fashion retailer whose 'labels for less' concept has been nothing short of a resounding success story and one of the most revolutionary global computing brands of the 21st century.
Since beginning trading in 1994, this company is now the tenth largest fashion retailer in the UK and their rapid expansion has seen them handling an ever-increasing number of new store openings and existing store re-fits as they now continue to develop and refine their business model. Since 2002, our relationship with them has grown from supplier and installer of structured cabling, telephony services and 24/7 maintenance support to one of trusted IT infrastructure consultant, project management and communications partner.
When this Tier 1 retailer decides to build a new store, Icom liaise effectively with the client and all contractors involved in the construction fit out and IT installation from the pre-construction stage through to handover to the client. Compliance checks are carried out, ensuring that all network and data cabling, mains power and IT equipment have been installed to standard store specifications.
As well as opening a host of new stores, our partner has undertaken a nationwide store modernisation program, changing the look of its existing stores and turning to Icom to project manage their IT and cabling requirements. The deadlines involved are always aggressive; turnaround time limited to minimise interruption to trading. As testimony to how our partnership has developed and the level of trust they now place in our skills, for the past two years we have been working alongside them on a number of high profile projects, both in the UK and the rest of Europe.
Global Computing Brand
A cultural icon of recent years, this industry leading retailer of computing and consumer electronics has been an important client of the structured cabling division and one that, as a whole, the Icom group are extremely proud of. As the brand has expanded within the UK, their need for corporate and retail space has also grown and Icom have been preferential installer and structured cabling adviser for a number of these structured cabling projects, including both direct and contracted works. Icom have branched into other services, such as the supply of telephony peripherals, to UK and European corporate offices as a result of the continuing development of this ever-successful partnership.
