a hard market to read. Every real estate client or stakeholder has
unique objectives, constraints, operational circumstances and
economic realities. Investors are looking to property to deliver the
high returns they once achieved from equities – but widespread
economic uncertainty means tenant demand for office space is
spasmodic and residential development uneven. In such a competitive

Retail continues to change at a
dramatic pace, with shoppers evolving their habits and raising their
expectations faster than many retailers can adjust. The retail
industry is at a pivotal point with many concurrent dynamics
increasing pressure on sales and margins; many international
retailers entering/expanding domestic markets, the e-commerce/mobile
channel finally coming of age and now forcing retailers to examine
and become expert at serving their customers no matter how the
customers shop, collect or return merchandise, and the increased
competition from domestic competitors who are gradually expanding
assortments into adjacent categories.
Through value-driven strategies,
Covedo is helping retailers operate seamlessly across channels to
create a wonderful experience for customers. We deliver good
strategic business advice and follow through all the way to the end
of implementation to help our clients get better results, quicker.

In the world of technology, it’s
not enough to react to change. You have to create change to stay
ahead. Business today depends on technology as never before – to
drive transformation, productivity and global operations. Any
technology initiative not tightly linked to specific, measurable
business goals risks delivering an empty promise.
The companies that can pull it
off are the ones that are in command of every aspect of their
business from high-profile innovation to the fundamentals of
operations. Many companies are good at one or two of these areas,
but not all of them. That’s where we can help. Our Technology
specialists, a key part of our Technology, Media &
Telecommunications (TMT) practice, work aggressively to help
industry leaders make dramatic change work for them. Covedo provides
a broad, deep spectrum of technology services to help organizations
translate their strategic business agendas into IT initiatives and
solutions that measurably improve performance.
Transportation and Logistics
While the developing global
economy offers enormous growth potential for the freight and
logistics industry players, it also brings more intricate supply
chains, higher costs and tighter regulatory demands. Also, logistics
trends, such as competitive trade routes and falling freight rates,
will continue to affect the industry’s bargaining power with
shippers. Freight forwarding industry players will need to meet
customer demands by developing attractive solutions even if that
means outsourcing key services.
Researchers are showing that high
performers in freight forwarding industry and contract logistics
sector have a controlling presence in key growth markets and the
flexibility to respond swiftly and innovatively to the evolving
needs of the customer. We help freight and logistics companies
integrate acquisitions, create value-added functionality and reduce
aging financial and operating systems’ maintenance costs while
mitigating the risks of unlocking complex legacy systems.
Travel and Tourism
World travel and tourism continue
to expand and the industry needs to manage this extraordinary growth
in ways that sustain the long-term social, environmental and
economic competitiveness of the routes and destinations travelers
use. The travel, hospitality and leisure (THL) industry is going
through an unprecedented period of change. Organizations within the
industry are faced with increasingly complex issues on branding,
operational excellence, asset ownership, emerging technologies and
Covedo can help travel services
companies, hotels, tour operators, cruises and car rental agencies
meet these challenges by improving customer satisfaction, operations
efficiency and adaptable business processes. We work with leaders in
both the public and private sector to tackle the challenges in the
