Fossil Group is managing their business data--and empowering youth in Kenya--by contracting for data services with Digital Divide Data.

With 400 retail locations, 4,000 wholesale locations, and 13,000 employees worldwide, Fossil Group is well-known for providing American vintage inspiration. As they manage operations in markets around the world, Fossil requires accurate data to ensure that their collections are tracked properly. Fossil Group, together with the Fossil Foundation partnered with DDD Kenya for support.

DDD Keeps the Fossil Watch On Time
Digital Divide Data (DDD), known for its socially responsible business process services, maintains essential data for Fossil Group. DDD teams in Kenya manage data for Fossil's products worldwide--and organizes records in a timely and efficient way. As a result, Fossil's business runs like clockwork.

Kenyan Youth Gain Work Experience and a College Degree
DDD's team in Kenya includes talented youth hired from the slum areas of Nairobi. They have been specially recruited and trained for these tasks--and also have an opportunity to attend college while they work. Fossil Group’s business helps them to develop critical work skills and also enables them to pay for a part of their tuition through their earnings. Youth borrow part of the cost of tuition from a Kenyan government program. And, DDD enables the payment of rest of their tuition with a scholarship.
