The Challenge & Expectation

Entering Vietnam nearly 30 years ago, Abbott has grown strongly in this dynamic market. To be able to do that, they invested in the construction of a nutritional product factory in Binh Duong province. Currently, Abbott Vietnam is distributing its products through many distribution channels, from agents, wholesalers to pharmacies, supermarkets, and eCom platforms like Shopee, Tiki, Lazada, etc.

However, having too many sale channels, as well as many partners in each channel, makes it difficult to keep track and process orders, inventory statuses and customer information. This situation leads to data conflicts between distribution channels, causing revenue loss and management difficulty. In addition, with Abbott Global's strategic goal of digital transformation and automation in every stage in their work cycle, Abbott Vietnam wants to optimize automated sales activities through chatbots and Facebook Shop to reduce shortages staffed at the sales and product consulting stages.
