FPT Becomes Carlsberg’s Technology Partner on a Global Scale

HANOI, Vietnam–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#FPT–FPT, the leading IT service provider in Southeast Asia and Carlsberg,
one of the world’s leading brewery groups have recently signed a global
framework contract whereupon 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 cooperation between FPT and Carlsberg was initiated since 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 Bar. With MES, FPT
has enhanced the company’s experience in delivering projects related to
digital monitoring and controlling system, helping Carlsberg to optimize
the manufacturing process and maximize production output. FPT was chosen
to implement this project because of its proven technology capability
and strong global presence, especially in Asia. Carlsberg has been
planning to roll out MES for 14 factories across this continent in the
near future. In addition to MES, FPT is going to leverage the company’s
expertise in Artificial Intelligence to help Carlsberg analyze
consumers’ behavior, predict demand and plan for production. The
collaboration between FPT and Carlsberg in Digital Transformation was
also expanded to Connected bar, which is considered as the “game
changer” of 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.

Mr. Cees ‘t Hart, CEO of Carlsberg Group, shared at the signing
ceremony: “We are excited about entering into this partnership with FPT.
Their support to help us digitize our breweries gets us closer to
realizing our sustainability goals as well as improving productivity”.

FPT, we always strive to enhance and enrich our technology capability so
as to offer more value-added service to our clients. In the period
between 2018 and 2020, we have set the target of growing our revenue
from digital services by 70 percent each year, turning into the
world-class DT service provider. By becoming the global IT service
provider of Carlsberg, we do embark the ambition and responsibility to
help our client in their business modernization and digitalization,
leading to high business efficiency as well as extraordinary customer
experience, thus reaffirming Carlsberg’s position as the top leading
beer and beverage producer”.
