M&S: Plan A Supplier Exchange website
We launched the M&S Plan A Supplier Exchange in 2009 to improve the 'Plan A' team's communication and collaboration with suppliers on issues for climate change, fair trade and environmental sustainability.
We were approached to maximise an opportunity to improve supplier communications at M&S. Real Life Digital were instrumental in both the inception and ongoing continuous development and support of the Plan A Supplier Exchange.
Over the course of nearly seven years we continued adding features and redesigning to be inline with brand requirements.
The Plan A Supplier Exchange contained the following functionality:
- Pages with user comments
- Networking between users
- Events and signups
- Case studies
- Landing pages for the key business areas and initiatives
- Geolocation and mapping
- Twitter and Facebook integration
The site was a secure internal site, which was never viewable to the general public. In 2016 it was decided that the Plan A Supplier Exchange had served its purpose in its current form and was closed.
Real Life Digital continue to work with M&S on newer and more expansive extranet systems.
