The trend towards digitalisation has accelerated as Covid-19 lockdowns and restrictions forced many to stay home. Building on our digital strategy to connect with stakeholders across our entire value chain, we leverage data analytics through Integrated Data Driven Marketing (iDDM) to better respond to consumers’ fast changing behaviours and deliver better marketing value. We have also developed digital B2B (Business to Business) and B2C (Business To Customers) platforms and use data-driven insights to provide faster and value-added service to our customers and consumers that in turn drive sales. We now have a team of close to 20 employees in HEINEKEN Vietnam dedicated to this effort, including specialists such as data scientists.

It demonstrates our belief that innovative brand building activities can create shared value for the economy and environment while making meaningful contributions to society. The project began in 2018, and doubled in scale this year, with twice the number of outlets participating and caps collected.
