Edrington is one of the world’s leading whisky manufacturers and distributors, with a brand portfolio including The Famous Grouse, The Macallan and Highland Park.
Our relationship with Edrington was cemented by the successful delivery of their global brands portal.
We were next asked to create a New Product Development system to support the business’s continuous innovation. Their existing system did not fulfil their needs, and they saw the advantages of SharePoint for enabling collaboration across the business.
We developed a system based on the SharePoint Server 2013 Workflow platform which manages the process – from the initial idea, through to the approval of a new product or expression.
The solution’s close integration with the existing Brands Portal created a consistent experience for users, thanks to features such as Active Directory logins and security groups which were already in place.
It also fostered closer collaboration between staff at Edrington’s offices around the world, improving efficiency and driving innovation.
