A short overview of Feldschlösschen
Founded in 1876, Feldschlösschen is one of the leading Swiss beverage and brewing companies. Nowadays, the company owns the biggest brewery in Switzerland by production – the Feldschlösschen Brewery.
Widely known for its beer, the company also produces non-alcoholic beverages and mineral waters.
Originally founded in Switzerland, the Feldschlösschen brand continues to grow. In 1991 the company acquired Cardinal, another Swiss brand of beer, and later, in 2000, Feldschlösschen became a part of the Carlsberg Group.
Looking for transparency and centralized reporting
Being responsible for the success of multiple brands and sub-brands, the Feldschlösschen justDrink team is used to running numerous paid and non-paid marketing campaigns simultaneously. To stay competitive and maintain high brand awareness, the company actively uses many marketing channels such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Display or Google Search to promote its products.
Due to vast volumes of data distributed across multiple channels and with numerous partners involved, the monitoring, which often took a significant amount of time, was done independently per campaign, channel and media agency. As a result, the team ended up with multiple disconnected reports which were delivered not in real time, could not be compared and therefore were challenging to analyze. This made it difficult to see the full picture and adequately assess the performance of each campaign.
Moreover, the Feldschlösschen justDrink team struggled to get a holistic view of the overall performance. Vast volumes of decentralized data made it hard to visualize the actual marketing funnel performance for each of their brands. Thus, without understanding their data, the team could not estimate the potential bottlenecks and optimize their existing campaigns.
Manfred Weiss, Head of Digital at Feldschlösschen, realized that the existing approach with decentralized and non-real time reporting and data-driven overview was far from optimal and mainly resulted in lost opportunities. To nurture a greater competitive advantage and maintain a leading position in the market, the company needed a solution that could help them get more insights into their data, enable centralized reporting, get a holistic overview of their funnel performance and allow them to use modern techniques such as predictions or monitoring over all their channels.
“We were looking for an AI-based solution that allows us not only to bring all our data together but also estimate the actual effectiveness of our justDrink Marketing efforts.”Manfred Weiss, Head of Digital at Feldschlösschen
Knowing how time-consuming a real-time multi-channel monitoring and reporting was for the team, it was clear that the company needed an AI-driven solution that could easily automate these processes.
- No holistic overview across the company’s brands’ campaign performance
- Decentralized and non-real time reporting
- Vast amount of data that cannot be analyzed manually
- No clear view on the marketing funnel for justDrink
- No data-driven predictions or prescriptions on what to do next
