Customer Profile

Our client in this study is an international energy drink manufacturing company having net revenue of $6.6 Billion, with their products sold worldwide in over 171 countries. The retail giant also distributes and markets a number of other drinks, apart from energy drinks.

Nexgen POG has been a part of such leading international brands for over a decade. Retailers and manufacturers from around the world are using Nexgen POG to create store specific planograms for maximized sales and revenue.

The Business Challenge

The beverage manufacturing company has its operations spread across different countries like Japan, France Middle East and many more. Over the past one year, the company has been using our license for all regions. Although the company was not facing any major business challenge, their main requirement was to use planograms for region wise segregation of data. They wanted to see how implementing Nexgen POG could help them creating region specific planograms. For example, the employees working in Japan, will only be able to see data of that specific region.

When a company is operating in a global market, it can be quite challenging to design and modify marketing strategies that suit all regions alike. Cultural barriers can be a major concern for international brands. Global customers exhibit diversities in terms of needs, expectations, purchasing power, and consumption pattern and so on. Thus, a clear understanding of the local market is very crucial for success of marketing strategies and long term survival of the brand. Such an understanding helps in better market segmentation, product design, pricing, and distribution?etc.
