Beam Suntory, a leader in premium spirits, was challenged by regional isolation, lack of visibility and limited compliance to brand standards. This was hampering their global growth objectives.
Beam Suntory was looking for a single global marketing execution partner to manage and streamline execution of POSM, Branded Merchandise, eCommerce, Warehousing and Fulfillment.
The partner had to have robust technology to allow improved communication and simplified workflows across regions for better global collaboration.
HH Global consolidated Beam Suntory’s disparate marketing activities into a single, unified global operating system. Leveraging HH Global’s technology, all buying, reporting and project management was combined into one scalable solution.
This empowered Beam Suntory to:
Before implementing HH Global’s proprietary technology, Beam’s POS purchasing programs relied on a maze of opaque processes and manual spreadsheets. By merging into one streamlined, digitized platform, they could accelerate operations and drive strategic expansion across more capabilities and geographies.
How we did it
The HH Global technology suite provides an end-to-end solution powering the creation, purchase and distribution of POSM materials. This drives major efficiencies through integrated systems and robust reporting capabilities.
And by integrating our team into Beam Suntory’s marketing teams, we were able to clearly understand their brand strategies. This meant we could offer the right thought leadership and expertise to address their specific needs.
Across 5,500 projects
Through a simplified approach and robust technology
Providing synergy across regions
Procurement cost savings are certainly important, but it the ancillary benefits that HH Global provides that truly sets it apart from the other marketing execution companies. These include increased productivity, better visibility, improved communication, stronger brand consistency, and reduced waste.
