Since the outbreak of Covid-19, the International Partners team has had to reinvent itself. Let’s take a look at what has been done to support partners remotely
The teams had to reinvent their working methods and redesign how to coordinate openings.
> Libya recently opened 2 stores again: in Tripoli and Benghazi. The partner knows the world of children’s wear well and the brand in particular. These openings went very smoothly.
> In Palestine, however, we have a brand new partner getting ready to open their first Okaïdi in Ramallah. The first shop-in-shop store is very well located and will open early April in the LACASA MALL, the largest shopping centre in the country!
Hasna, Director Okaïdi South Zone says:
“Historically, we have never opened with a partner remotely without seeing them physically…never! And it’s a new partner, who has retail experience but did not know the brand universe at all!”
How did you support your partners at a distance?
As well as our daily conversations on instant messaging, we gave our partners a complete video training course divided into 3 sections:
It was a first for our team, a great challenge that we managed brilliantly and without any hiccups!
For their development plan, the partner is already planning two additional openings! A great one to watch…
Congratulations to the international teams!
