Strengthen and deploy global capabilities

While every optical retail market has its unique characteristics, we recognize that customers’ underlying needs and key purchase drivers are very similar in most parts of the world. Based on these insights, we deploy a range of global capabilities in all our markets, regardless of size and maturity. Among others, these include the implementation of the global ERP system, the continued roll-out of the Solaris concept and an attractive assortment of Exclusive Brands, and a standardized store concept.
