More about our company...

We use the latest in technology to assess, down to the granular level, where retailers can improve efficiencies, ROI and fully utilise all resources, including the most expensive which is the human capital. Where the business’ metrics are out of alignment and the problem is accurately diagnosed; the process of reparation is clear. Ilanga will prepare an improvement plan and assist the client with the implementation of that plan – setting as an outcome, the desired returns that the owner’s and shareholders expect from their investment and risk.

The company was formed around the collective skills of successful and experienced retail operators, owners and consultants. Due to the practical background of its directors Ilanga prides itself in its ability to connect with retail owners and managers at a pragmatic level.

Our Vision

In partnership with its valued associates, Ilanga Retail Consultants aims to be the first choice of consultants to the Retail and Wholesale industry, to selected markets, in the sub-Saharan region of Africa. Combining the utilisation of bricks-and-mortar business with e-based access to our services and toolboxes, Ilanga will remain true to its roots of relating to its clients on an individual level.

More about our company...

We work in association with the internationally acclaimed Fernridge Consulting . This partnership ensures our clients have access to the highest level of business advisory available. 

Fernridge scopes, quantifies and qualifies the market potential (external drivers) of a retail business, while we, at Ilanga, analyses the business from the inside.

If the market potential exists but a retailer is not getting its rightful share of the market, the problem lies with one or more of the drivers of sales, margins, working capital and expenses.

We are proud of our partnership with Fernridge Consulting, Africa Eye, Iconic Group and  Arc Retail Consulting.
