Success Story


The Scenario

Pepsi Cola Colombia Ltda., as part of its trade marketing strategy for its Gatorade brand, annually sponsored more than 1,200 sporting events throughout the Colombian territory. To execute this task, Gatorade had a national team of zone supervisors responsible for contacting the organizers of the events, negotiating the sponsorship of the brand, and managing the logistics of the Gatorade products and the assembly of their merchandising material in each of the events. 

Before the start of the project, the supervisors sent information about the development of the events in a disorganized and incomplete way from the different cities of Colombia using files in other formats, the central coordinator had to consolidate this information to get an idea of what was happening with the events and the work of the team of coordinators. 

The Marketing department promoted a project to evaluate and monitor the investment, execution, and result of the events sponsored by the Gatorade brand in an agile and efficient way.
