Welcome to Bench. Born out of The St Ives Group, and launched in 2015, we created Bench in response to seeing so many companies confused and concerned by a number of issues:
If you have found yourself nodding along to this list, then you’re in the right place.
As a team, we strongly believe in the practical application of business strategy and technology to enable transformation and create value. This means not just helping shape why you should be changing, but what it will mean for you and your organisation – from complete digital transformation to simply implementing a new piece of technology.
We deliver this by holding to the principle that everything we do must help you make money, save money, enhance the brand and ultimately enable you to take control.
Our experience spans retail, automotive, financial services, charity, transport and travel, pharmaceuticals, FMCG and many more. Our advice and support will always come from a position of cross-sector expertise.
It may not always be an easy ride, we will challenge you and you will challenge us – but together, we will deliver value.
From our earliest contact with Bench, we could see they knew digital marketing inside out. The level and quality of their response, and willingness to explore areas of the implementation ignored by some other suppliers, convinced us they had the insight and adaptability to work with us.
