The struggle - Localizing digital & print promotions at scale while staying on-brand

INTERMARCHÉ is one of the leading French supermarket retailer founded in 1969, with an ever-growing footprint in national & international markets. With rising demands for localized & user-friendly experiences in retail, INTERMARCHÉ needed a way to enable their 1,800 local stores with promotional materials that were fit for their specific region, useful for multichannel campaigns, and that stayed on-brand. Without a centralized system in place, this challenge became paramount to solve.

Together with ARiSTiD's commercial offering, Brand&Shop, - powered by CHILI GraFx - INTERMARCHÉ geared up to innovate their creative production operations.

We help retailers like INTERMARCHÉ to make their transition to the omnichannel experience. Our technologies empower them to blend print and digital media, enabling the creation of highly personalized customer experiences at a large scale.

required for omnichannel output is only possible thanks to Creative Automation"
