Pricecheck sets up a business change department

The new business change team.

As part of its aim to achieve £200 million turnover by 2026, Pricecheck has set up a new function dedicated to improving its internal processes, systems and technologies.

The business change team is based at the wholesaler’s head office in Sheffield, and members of the team will work across departments to experience different roles first-hand and identify improvements that can be made.

The team, which is made up of six innovators with a passion for change, is assisting with an array of projects set out in the company’s Vision 200 strategic plan.

Heading up the team are two business change managers: Helen Coulthard, who has over a decade of experience in wholesale distribution including stints with Palmer & Harvey and Bestway, and Rebecca Walker, a long-standing employee of 21 years who knows the business inside out.

So far, the business change team has implemented systems that have already seen a positive impact on the ecommerce and brand distribution sides of the business, from improving the fulfilment of Amazon orders and small pick processes to playing an instrumental part in the launch of the company’s new website.

“The best part about business change is being able to work on projects that make a real difference to the company. But most importantly, it’s about improving efficiencies within our teams and asking ourselves how we can create a more holistic approach throughout the business,” explained Coulthard.

Walker added: “Since we launched, business change has made consistent improvements to operations, whether that’s developing internal processes to help teams work more successfully or to overcome challenges such as Brexit. And as our team continues to grow, so does our ability to support Pricecheck with exciting new projects in the future.”

Debbie Harrison, Pricecheck’s  joint managing director, commented: “In any business, change is crucial to drive innovation, staff development and business growth opportunities. By having our own team of experts that thrive from this constant change, we can do business better, and innovate more effectively as a company.”
