Pernod Ricard China-Journey of Innovation
Pernod Ricard China-Journey of Innovation
In order to adapt to the fast growing and ever-changing market environment in China, Pernod Ricard China had taken it upon themselves to be the leader of innovation in their industry. They were one of the first spirits & wine companies to leverage the QR code technology for product traceability to gain in-depth insights into their product distribution channels, achieving great success in their battle against Grey Market Activities ( unauthorized cross regions distributions). And thanks to the possibilities of this technology bring, for the first time in history as a strictly B2B brand, Pernod Ricard China achieved in building direct engagement channels with the end consumers leveraging that technology. System in Motion is proud to be part of that journey.
In 2016, we helped Pernod Ricard China to continue their journey of innovation by modernizing their traceability integrating with their HQ’s corporate information systems, helped simplified and streamlined their overall traceability structure with customized developments that are fully integrated to meet their special requirements.
They are one of our most valued customers at System in Motion, as they also value the same vision as we do: Commitment to Efficiency, Results and Success!
Moving forward, we will continue working on more innovative information systems projects supporting Pernod Ricard China and worldwide in building a more modern and digitalized industry standard by delivery high quality projects within. “Our Next Generation Traceability can support business better & faster.” Sam Wang – IT Director Pernod Ricard China
