Ab InBev is one of the largest Consumer Packaged Goods manufacturers in the world generating upwards of $70Billion in revenue. With a global distribution network and millions of people consuming their products every day, it's safe to say they have a very complex business.
But they didn't become arguably the largest manufacturers of beer by chance—they invested heavily in producing a high-performance culture with a key focus on customer and distributor-centricity.
In 2018, then Sr. Global Director of Contact Strategy, Luiz Gondim was convinced to attend CustomerGauge's Monetize! experience event in Boston. Then everything changed.
Luiz and AB InBev had a problem. Technology was making the beer distribution environment more accessible and competitive globally. Basically, other beer manufacturers were striking up relationships with their distributors who then sold more of their beer instead.
But Luiz knew that the time when distributors only had a few options had vanished. Now, their distribution clients would be influenced more by the experience they have with the manufacturer.
So Luiz got to work and partnered with CustomerGauge to roll out their Account Experience software across a few test markets. The data turned out to be pretty eye-opening. They quickly learned they had negative NPS in multiple markets, but were motivated to change, quickly.
Fast forward a few short months, AB InBev rolled out CustomerGauge Account Experience across 27+ global markets to start collecting feedback from their distribution network. To say that's an impressive feat, is an understatement!
