SUMOL+COMPAL is Portugal’s biggest soft drinks group, owning some of the most iconic and best-recognised brands in the country. With 5 industrial units, four in Portugal and one in Mozambique, it processes 25,000 tons of fruit annually and has more than 40 packaging lines. It has a portfolio of 16 brands divided into different segments of drinks and vegetables and currently exports to over 60 countries.
For several years SUMOL+COMPAL was looking for a solution to help its teams to manage the high volume of data collected around its logistics, transport and distribution activities. This situation was further aggravated by the pandemic, with remote teams being unable to physically cross-check information between team members.
After a careful evaluation of the challenges presented by the daily operation of the logistics, transport and distribution teams, Xpand IT implemented a portal, using Jira Service Management in the Cloud.
