Case Studies

EA is a business driven by an innate desire to create impact. We work in unison with our clients to pursue enduring value, fearlessly.

Take a look through some of our recent assignments below.

Example Case Study Projects


0.1 Technology

Comprehensive RFP results in agreement to select chosen supplier

Our client, Whitbread, a FTSE 100 PLC, had a requirement to move to a new single people platform to manage its workforce across locations in UK and Europe. Existing solutions were multiple, end or nearing end of life, with a heavy reliance on manual processes that inhibited growth.


0.2 Impact

Off-shoring central functions to reduce cost, without risking quality

Our client, NCP, was to transition multiple back-office functions to a lower-cost offshore location which would provide a more cost-effective model that would provide a platform to scale and improve future service. The Client selected EA to act as a partner to lead the strategy, design, and implementation of the new offshore hub.


0.3 Transformation

Establishing a new strategic delivery office capability

0.4 Transformation

Pursuing a US listing for a UK Fintech

Our client, Brakes Group (part of SYSCO), lacked the specialist European regulatory experience necessary to deliver the required changes related to GDPR, and with limited knowledge of regulatory change, and a lack of standardised processes, they needed external support.


0.6 Transformation

Moving the Digital conversation forward

Our client, Planet, a high growth, acquisitive, PE backed tax free business sought to position itself more centrally into the payments space. This strategy required a more digitally enabled business and one which held data at the core.

Rapid implementation of a global retailer’s HR system

Our client, Boden, a global online fashion retailer with c1.7m customers, £350m+ revenues and over 1,300 staff.

0.8 Technology

End 2 End delivery of a new, API enabled, Payments technology Platform

Winning confidence to deliver a pan-continental ERP migration

Our client, Travelex, is a global leader in foreign currency with operations in over 20 countries and 1000+ stores at airports and other locations worldwide.

Previous attempts to migrate to a single GL, using internal resources, had failed. They needed EA support.


0.12 Transformation

Developing a growth strategy, with intense focus on back-office optimisation
