Digital Transformation of a Print Media House in the GCC

Digital Transformation


Preparing a Print Media House digital transformation and online business launch plan in the GCC.


Our client was a print media corporation based in Saudi Arabia, which decided to exploit its content and business network to create leading e-commerce and last-mile logistics distribution enterprise for GCC markets.


Our team developed a transformational approach for an e-commerce company. We carried out global and regional benchmarking and established the most desirable segments. We have also defined a new business model, including a hybrid portfolio and a performance hub strategy. Our team developed a strategic business strategy and execution roadmap, built an investment case, and completed funding rounds.


We supported the client by offering a thorough benchmarking of popular regional e-commerce models, studied GCC market dynamics and e-commerce businesses. An in-depth study of primary potential prospects for a media organization to start a new e-commerce business. We built industry study and review as well as identification of primary e-tail niches and holes. Eventually, our team developed a specific USP business model and a range of investment portfolios.

Engagement ROI

YCP Solidiance provided a hybrid approach spanning both B2C (e-tail portfolio) and B2B (logistics enforcement hub), built a self-sustaining environment for the new venture, helped raise more than US$10 million, and established 12-month project management and governance process.

I am very pleased with YCP Solidiance ‘s research on a competitor benchmarking project in the Automotive Glass industry. The team has thoroughly grasped the project context and goals, and their performance has definitely exceeded our standards. While there have been some difficulties in gathering accurate details considering this is a highly technical field, the methodological structure and systematic approach have been achieved.
