With 110,000 people requiring training on Sainsbury’s new checkout system, the company needed a dedicated area at each store to set up a checkout system. Having looked at the existing space available it was clear that this couldn’t be done in every case.
The company looked at many options, including transporting staff to the stores where there was space available, renting local offices or conference rooms and hiring buildings. After looking at the logistics and costs involved in each of these, it was obvious that hiring buildings was the best option.Solution :
All of the 72 Portakabin Pacemaker buildings that were hired by Sainsbury’s were fitted out to meet the individual training needs of the store where they were situated. The buildings were delivered to the stores by the local Portakabin Hire Centre where they stayed for six weeks while the training programme was carried out. They were then collected and taken to the next group of stores.
“The service we have received from Portakabin has been second-to-none and having a dedicated project management team has been excellent. The logistics of a project of this scale are very difficult to manage and the Portakabin team’s support has made all the difference to the success of this programme.”
David Orr, Project Manager, Sainsbury’s.
