Preparing 90,000 Irish businesses for post-Brexit trading

An end-to-end technology solution for a mass audience

Our client's challenge

The Irish Government needed 90,000 Irish companies ready to negotiate the heightened customs trading requirements with a post-Brexit United Kingdom. It was critical to minimize the admin overheads for the training provider (Skillnet).

Our insight

The solution needed to be both slick and scalable. And more importantly, able to cope with the 90,000 Irish companies who needed the training.

Our approach

It was critical that our approach was scalable and hassle-free to help avoid delays and disruption to businesses and customers caused by incorrect or inaccurate customs declarations.

We took 5 days of face-to-face customs training and reimagined them into a fully mobile experience.
