eNova is a boutique strategy consultancy providing advice on all things digital and multichannel to financial services, retail and consumer goods household names in the UK and abroad.
Founded by an eCommerce and private-equity duo with a vision to help businesses extract the value creation potential of digital and multichannel.
Senior advice with a distinct boutique, no-nonsense, direct style.
Our assignments often go on for years as we become our clients’ “non-exec digital sounding board”.
Clients we’ve worked with:
'Paul Mc Dermott'
Head of eCommerce, Poundland
I work hand in hand with eNova in the design and implementation of our eCommerce ambitions. What impresses me most is their ability to operate at all levels. They feel as comfortable debating the strategy with the Board, putting together a detailed financial model, advising on warehouse setup, or leading technical or design workshops. They will be an integral part of the success of Poundland's future multichannel operations.
CEO Planet Organic
I always call on the services of eNova in any organisation I've worked in. They are in my experience the clear leaders in multi-channel and combine this with a great understanding of the challenges facing all retail sectors.
ex-Head of eCommerce, Paperchase
eNova really are experts in multichannel and I didn't hesitate to hire them again at Paperchase. They delivered the best review I have seen of click and collect options and recommendations. The Board was impressed with their work and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend their services to anyone seeking multichannel excellence.
Partner, Active Private Equity
eNova's knowledge of multichannel retail is impressive. They have a practical, experience-based and results-driven approach. This has generated great insight for us and achievable recommendations each time we have worked with them.
CEO of the Retail Trust
Over the years I have worked with many so called "digital experts". eNova are the ones who consistently deliver on their promises. I would recommend their knowledge and no-nonsense approach to anyone. I know they have added great value to many retailers (large and not so large) aspiring to conquer the MCR world.
Founding Partner, Change Capital Partners
As a fund specialised in retail and consumer, exploiting the potential of multichannel is essential to our success. eNova have and will continue to prove invaluable partners in this regard, both in keeping us in tune with trends relevant to our investments, and demonstrating the value of their advice creating value for several of our portfolio companies. Their combination of deep expertise, hands-on experience and private equity thinking is unique.
Digital Director, Inflexion Private Equity
"The work that eNova did on Ideal allowed us to hit an otherwise impossible deadline, adding c30% to the exit valuation”
One year into our turnaround Business Plan I wanted an experienced, independent perspective on our progress and thoughts on how we could accelerate our direct website sales. eNova worked fast, effectively bringing both their deep expertise and a pragmatic point of view. The results were clear, well articulated and actionable. The team were extremely good. My business is thriving. eNova are a class act
Our Media Portfolio
It’s been 14 years since I had the most productive pint of my career, the one I was drinking with a colleague when we came up with “Click and Collect” as a name to define an idea that seemed mad to most observers, says Andy Morrey. Of course, the goalposts have moved. Whilst a click and collect trial used to make the headlines, nowadays unless it’s as innovative as collection points from schools or coffee shops, it barely makes anyone blink.” says Andy Morrey.
DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION: OUR PLAYGROUND
Today’s consumers shop differently. We understand the multichannel, multi-device customer and how they shop, and know how organisations need to adapt and transform to adapt. This is what we call the digital transformation journey.
We help our clients at every step of the digital transformation journey, from the thinking and planning, to implementation, all the way to optimisation and ongoing monitoring. We work on all digital topics be they strategic, technical, commercial, operational, design, organisational, or process-related. Our approach is practical and financial.
WE DON’T LIKE JARGON
The resistance against industry jargon and hype was one of the founding principles of eNova!
We don’t hide behind jargon or the latest technical must-haves. We speak a language you understand: Board level, customer focused and operational.
We’ve created this list of ‘Jargon’ words as a proof. Let us know if we’re missing any!
