Our Work

PepsiCo Case Study

PepsiCo Case Study

The Brief

PepsiCo selected us to work with them in late 2015 to develop and roll-out a fully integrated end-to-end solution for their promotional materials.
Previously purchasing from a wide source of supply, with little sharing across markets, PepsiCo Europe were interested in moving to a single source global model for streamlining their processes and leveraging spend.

 The Solution

The program is run from their European headquarters in the UK with distribution for the multi-brand Collection items from Poland for the Europe, from Istanbul for Turkey and from Moscow for Russia.
Each Prominate office services PepsiCo locally for local Promotions and Specials across their portfolio global, regional and local brands.

The solution incorporates integrated web-to-print functionality to minimize inventory and maximize flexibility for a broad portfolio of high profile brands (for example Pepsi, Walkers/Lays, Tropicana, Quaker, Gatorade) and sponsorship materials (UEFA Champions League in particular) whilst maintaining centralized and efficient distribution.

We punch-out with their SAP system, and are the first supplier to do this for them pan-European, and also support separate log-in access for single-sign-on when a user does not have a SAP license as well as user name and password access for third parties such as agencies.

Siemens

The Brief

Prominate runs successful global and regional programs for Siemens and has done for many years with local support in over 40 countries and key distribution centres in China, Germany, Dubai, Russia, Brazil and Argentina. With a wide range of brands and a highly diverse premiums collection Siemens required strong leadership and solutions, for effective development of their markets.
