Business transformation consultancy case study

The UK automotive distribution sector is fiercely competitive, demanding top-tier service for growth. With a vast branch network serving over 30,000 customers, our client faced underperformance requiring swift transformation. Implementing improvement programmes in numerous small locations posed unique challenges, including resistance to change and time constraints.

Unipart Consultancy was tasked with instilling the Unipart Way across the network. Overcoming resistance, they devised a comprehensive rollout strategy emphasising tangible benefits and long-term commitment. Immersing branch staff in Unipart’s operational sites showcased the methodology’s effectiveness, fostering enthusiasm and engagement.

To sustain changes, a robust electronic coaching system was introduced, providing real-time guidance and driving continuous improvement. This led to a 20% performance boost and doubled problem-solving engagement. The 12-month implementation yielded significant improvements: a 10% sales increase and £1 million in cost savings from innovative problem-solving. Additional benefits included an 80% reduction in abandoned calls, an 85% reduction in stock errors and 21% year-on-year sales growth.
