Pernod Ricard Group, the world’s second largest wine and spirits company, is strengthening the agility and resiliency of its cognac and champagne supply chains through a suite of cloud-based solutions from FuturMaster

Part of its ‘Transform & Accelerate’ group project, Pernod Ricard will deploy FuturMaster's cloud-based Demand and Supply Planning solutions to improve customer service and streamline demand planning and forecasting to support growth. 

FuturMaster was selected for the transformation project “for its business expertise and the ergonomics of its solution," explains Mathilde Bechetoille, Supply Chain Planning Manager at Mumm Perrier-Jouët.

The overarching vision is “to improve the performance of our supply chain to meet the challenges of tomorrow,” adds Loïc Morvan, Supply Chain Director at Martell Mumm Perrier-Jouët. 

Improvement, optimisation, collaboration

FuturMaster’s solutions will enable Loic and the planning teams to tackle three major issues at a time when agility and planing are paramount: “improving our service level, optimising our stocks and finally getting all the players to collaborate around a single solution and thus gaining agility in operational and strategic decision-making”. 

"This project demonstrates FuturMaster's ability to support an ambitious and decisive transformation in the fulfilment of the Pernod Ricard Group's strategy"

Greater visibility will empower the scheduling and supply departments, improve their productivity through an ergonomic, user-friendly tool, and allow them to concentrate on high value-added tasks. Establishing bottling and packaging programs, and identifying the supply needs in components and liquid manufacturing, will arm them with greater insight. Using its integrated Bill of Supply (BOS) and Optimiser, FurturMaster’s solution will also enable Martell Mumm Perrier-Jouët to navigate the processes that are unique to the types of beverages and products it offers. 

“The planning process differs from Cognac to Champagne,” Morvan explains. “We needed a sufficiently robust solution to be able to manage both pull flows (MTO) and push flows (MTS) to calculate the production plan sequences starting from the bottling/capping plan and going up to the assembly plan for cognac and the riddling plan for champagne.”

"Martell Mumm Perrier-Jouët's project is fully in line with FuturMaster's value proposition,” says Yacine Zeroual, Southern Europe General Manager at FuturMaster. “It involves reconciling agility, resilience, and responsiveness to strengthen the Martell Mumm Perrier-Jouët subsidiary's capacity to manage its supply chain. Our client will be able to take advantage of FuturMaster's unique data model to synchronise all the decisions made in its organisation's different process levels. This project demonstrates FuturMaster's ability to support an ambitious and decisive transformation in the fulfilment of the Pernod Ricard Group's strategy.”
