Situation

Aside from conventional consumers, a Premium Spirits Brand also sells its products to partners, with many of them in turn selling these products online to distributors/global consumers. This is called an indirect e-commerce route to market (RTM).

The brand wished to grow this RTM and provide customers with up-to-date, high-quality digital product marketing information to support distributor and consumer sales.

The challenges for a Premium Spirits Brand

The Premium Spirits Brand indirect e-commerce route to market (RTM) model required different trade customers around the globe to have access to different content. However, distributing brand- consistent assets and product information was an inefficient, time-consuming, and manual process.

The Premium Spirits Brand Digital Asset Management (DAM) solution prior to Bynder was no longer fit for purpose and needed to be replaced. However, they needed to ensure they could keep up with demand and continue advertising to consumers and trade customers during this transition. A Premium Spirits Brand used this opportunity to begin a digital transformation, working with EPAM to find the best technologies to improve the distribution of all assets and product information to help drive their business.
