Holland & Barrett Selects Dept To Deliver Its Digital Roadmap

Europe’s largest health and wellness retailer, Holland & Barrett, has partnered with international digital agency Dept as part of the global transformation of its ecommerce experience.

Following a highly competitive pitch, which included an intense three-day hackathon, Dept was chosen to assist in developing Holland & Barrett’s website.  This will help Holland & Barrett to deliver its ambitious digital roadmap.

The first phase of the project launches in spring 2019 with the website platform being iterated on over the course of the year and rolled out across all markets.

Holland & Barrett will work with Dept to help it move away from its position as purely retail product focused, and start to expand its offering as a service-based provider.

“It is an exciting time at Holland & Barrett as we focus on growing our digital capabilities. Having a partner like Dept on board will help us drive these plans forward.” Matt Poole, Director of Digital Delivery, Holland & Barrett.

With over 145 years of experience in the industry, today Holland & Barrett operates more than 1150 stores in 16 markets across the world, employing over 4000 people.

Dept has vast experience of delivering global digital and ecommerce solutions for large brands, including Panasonic, Karen Millen, Quicksilver, Birkenstock and many more.

We love working with ambitious organisations, and look forward to helping Holland & Barrett realise its digital aspirations.” Brian Robinson, Managing Director Digital Teams, Dept.
