FPT, the leading IT services provider in Southeast Asia and Carlsberg, one of the world’s leading brewery groups, have recently signed a global framework contract.

Accordingly, FPT has officially become Carlsberg’s technology partner, providing information technology (IT) as well as digital transformation (DT) services for the global brewer.

The two sides also planned to explore additional areas in digital transformation including smart brewery, cloud migration to azure, open API platform, data strategy and analytics.

The co-operation between FPT and Carlsberg started in January 2018. After a few months of collaboration, FPT has played the role of DT partner for Carlsberg in many projects related to manufacturing execution system (MES); AI for planning and Connected bars.

With MES, FPT has enhanced the company’s experience in delivering projects related to digital monitoring and controlling system, helping Carlsberg to optimise the manufacturing process and maximise production output.

In addition to MES, FPT is going to leverage the company’s expertise in artificial intelligence to help Carlsberg analyse consumers’ behavior, predict demand and plan for production.

The collaboration between FPT and Carlsberg in digital transformation was also expanded to Connected bars, which is considered a “game changer” for Carlsberg. The connected bars, enabled by smart censors, not only allow the brewery giant to assure their product quality but also monitor the consumption at the same time, leading to an effective supply management system.

"We are excited about entering into this partnership with FPT. Their support to help us digitise our breweries gets us closer to realising our sustainability goals as well as improving productivity," said Cees’t Hart, CEO of Carlsberg Group.

“At FPT, we always strive to enhance and enrich our technology capability so as to offer more value-added service to our clients. We have set the target of turning into a world-class DT service provider. By becoming the global IT service provider for Carlsberg, we aim to help our client in their business modernisation and digitalisation process, leading to high business efficiency as well as extraordinary customer experience, thus reaffirming Carlsberg’s position as the leading beer and beverage producer,” shared Truong Gia Binh, FPT’s Chairman. — VNS
