N Brown Group selects Sopra Steria to support its transformation into a digital-first retailer

London, UK, 16 May 2016: Sopra Steria has today announced a new partnership with N Brown Group, a leading multichannel retailer, to help support its strategic direction of becoming a digital-first retailer.

 A leading multi-brand fashion retailer, N Brown is undergoing the biggest business transformation in its 140-year history, refashioning itself from a direct mail-led to digital-first retailer.

Following a competitive process, Sopra Steria was chosen as a partner to assist in the creation of a unique platform to help N Brown drive technology change and business transformation.

Sopra Steria will run a core applications and infrastructure support service responsible for the management of IT service sub-contractors, data centres, servers and mainframes. The company will also provide technical support across a number of N Brown locations, including its national headquarters, call centres, stores, UK warehouses and other remote locations.

In delivering an agile, cost-effective, digitally focused IT department, N Brown was keen to ensure its new partner had a close cultural affinity to minimise any impact on colleagues whilst transforming their risk position.
