Founder's vision and promise

As a rapid growth Retailer, your business goals and objectives don’t always match your budgets or in-house resources. YALLO Retail offers a niche service — providing as needed and on-demand senior technology consultancy — providing direction to your in-house teams or director-managed technology functions and getting the most out of your IT budgets and possible software vendor relationships. 

Consider YALLO your virtual technology department, providing you agile senior strategic consultancy that’s completely flexible and tailored to your needs. The bonus? You get strategic technology insights without having to hire a tech director plus the multi-disciplined delivery team to make it a reality.

"The fierce competition for Retail talent, and the rising Tech complexity, is slowing down every retailer. It's a constant struggle to meet business's ever rising expectations. I've been on your side and have felt the pain that's the main driver for me to set up YALLO Retail. You can rely on our recruitment and consultancy services, and I guarantee your 100% satisfaction... IT'S TIME TO CHANGE!"
