The Challenge

Kering had existing relationships with the Econocom Group in France and Italy. The UK relationship started in 2016.

Kering first came to Econocom UK to spread the costs of their IT estate for their different brands. They had 5 rental agreements running at the same time, which made it difficult to manage contracts, locate assets and deal with equipment return.

Kering also needed to deploy 300 new iPhones in a cost effective way with everything managed for them.

Econocom Solution

Econocom built a simplified rental package for Kering, which consisted in:

  • putting all 5 rental contracts into a single Refresh Agreement allowing Kering to refresh their assets every 6 months to always be up-to-date.
  • using a new invoicing system to help with reconciliation and electronic signature for speeding up processes.
  • accessing Econocom’s asset management platform to easily locate assets and manage equipment return.
  • a flexible subscription for mobile devices with expert services for total piece of mind.

‘’Kering is a very strong sustainable brand. Thus, finding a sustainable but also affordable solution to deploy new technology was essential to us. We believe that Econocom are very easily contactable and offer the easiest supplier ordering process.’’
