Heineken quenching customers’ thirst for ASNs

HEINEKEN is the UK’s leading cider and beer producer and the name behind iconic drinks brands such as Strongbow, Bulmers, Foster's, Kronenbourg 1664 and Desperados, together with a full range of speciality brands.

They employ around 2,000 people across 8 sites in the UK. They have breweries, cider plants and offices in Edinburgh, Livingston, Tadcaster, Manchester, London, Hereford and Ledbury.

We were approached by Heineken, through our partners Movilizer, to provide a solution for their Alken-Maes division. They’d found, as more and more customers were requesting electronic Advanced Shipping Notifications (ASNs), their process for packing outbound deliveries were in need of refreshment.

We visited the Alken-Maes factory to understand their requirements for packing outbound deliveries and to see if any of our pre-built mobile apps for packing and loading could solve their problems.

We found that Heineken needed a more tailored solution for their outbound logistics process. So, we designed and tested a new Movilizer app for them.

Now the app is in the integration testing phase of the project, after that the app can be implemented into their production SAP environment. We’re continuing to support Heineken to get the optimal solution that satisfies their customers’ needs.
