As a global company with a growing portfolio, it is critical for Red Bull to have a solution in place that ensures all parties have access to the most accurate and up to date product data that adheres to the regulatory compliance standards of the food and beverage industry.
Red Bull says: “Transparency and security throughout the entire supply chain is crucial for us as a global beverage manufacturer. Aras Innovator provides a unified environment that allows all users of product information to collaborate around a single set of processes and data.”
Aras Innovator will enable Red Bull to configure their PLM solution to meet their unique needs as well as adapt it to respond to new requirements or take advantage of new innovation. In the food and beverage industry, regulatory standards require very precise information about ingredients and supply chains. This becomes even more complex in the case of Red Bull where production and sales are global, not just in one country. The digital solution behind it must combine scalability and flexibility so the entire end-to-end process can be accurately managed and monitored.
In addition to the technical requirements, cultural fit was also a key factor for Red Bull. The company valued Aras’ global positioning and strong presence in the DACH region. It was important for them to have knowledgeable local contacts and have access to a strong network of different implementation partners.
Red Bull says: “We considered many factors in evaluating PLM solutions. In terms of culture, Red Bull and Aras simply fit together. This, in addition to their international reach and expertise, gave us the confidence that they would be the best technology partner for us.”
Roque Martin, CEO, Aras said: “Red Bull is much more than just an energy drink – it is a company that has a deep-rooted passion for its brand and a unique drive to inspire people and ideas. As a company with a vision to transform the way the world makes products, we wholeheartedly understand this and look forward to giving this partnership wings with innovative, enterprise-class solutions.”
