A world leader in Wines and Spirits, Pernod Ricard have 90 subsidiaries and 100 production sites in 80 countries. The company was founded in 1975 and has 40 years of innovation, excellence and a portfolio of prestigious products. The group’s strategy currently focuses on the “Top 14” premium brands including Chivas Regal, Jameson, and Absolut. The Challenge The challenge for Pernod Ricard was to develop a mobile application, available offline, intended to manage and inventory all spirit barrel movement by scanning their barcodes, then synchronizing post-clearance data stored in SQLite embedded database with the Central Oracle database. Digitalizing the processes In 2012 the group's IT systems were to be digitalized and Pernod Ricard looked to develop mobile functionality for the management of their cellars. The cellars are considered having an “explosive atmosphere” (ATEX regulations) and may not be equipped with either Internet or Wi-Fi. It is, therefore, essential that the mobile devices work offline on an embedded database and then synchronize that database afterwards with the central system.
