Complexica Pty Ltd, a leading provider of Artificial Intelligence (AI) software for optimising sales, marketing, & supply chain activities, announced today that it has commenced implementation of its Decision Cloud® software platform into the Spanish operation of Pernod Ricard Winemakers. This deployment follows a series of go-lives across Australia and New Zealand, and forms part of a multi-year transformational project for Pernod Ricard Winemakers that is transitioning the business from paper, whiteboard, and spreadsheet-based systems, to Complexica’s cloud-based applications for supply chain planning, scheduling, and AI-driven optimisation. Earlier phases of the project were focused on the digitalisation of business processes and optimization of planning and scheduling activities within winery, finished goods, and bottling operations, whereas later phases focused on the optimization of vintage-related activities in terms of harvesting and transporting grapes into wineries for intake and crushing.

Complexica Managing Director Matt Michalewicz has discussed the rise of artificial intelligence and its potential for the drinks industry at a Drinks Association webinar.
“For the liquor industry in particular, advances in Artificial Intelligence systems and Machine Learning algorithms can drive improvements in high-value areas such as trade spend and promotional planning, pricing, demand forecasting and inventory optimization, as well as multi-channel marketing and sales activities,” Michalewicz said. "The problem is that there has been so much technological development in the recent past, that most liquor industry participants are unaware of what’s now possible and the benefits that can be realised.”
