Supporting and planning your peak trading operations

In 2014, we established the UK's first cross-client Peak Operations Room, where we set up a dedicated, multi-disciplined team of engineers to provide an escalation path for online operations teams in the event of load-related issues.

We made the right call too, because we're now seeing most retailers participate in Black Friday sales well before the actual event, with the spread in offers and deals across the Black Friday period and into the festive season placing an ongoing pressure on operations.

Our team of experts have all the right skills needed in this critical time, from operations, front and back-end developers, DBAs and technical architects, to achieve a timely solution. These could be tactical issues such as the need to launch earlier than expected in response to a competitor launch, or if there are any unforeseen operational issues arising during peak periods themselves.

And our operations team are on duty for long periods, from very early mornings to late nights, relieving the pressure from you.
