Perfetti Van Melle Vietnam Ltd. (PVM VN) is a fully owned subsidiary of Perfetti Van Melle Group . They were established in 1996 with a factory in Binh Duong and office in Ho Chi Minh. Producing and selling a diverse portfolio of products (i.e. confectionery , candies and gums) under Mentos, Chupa Chups and Alpenliebe, which are sold through various sales channels across the country
PVM Vietnam used to have countless services, licenses with different expired time, whether it is Domain, SMTN or Digital signatures, Maintenance and support, our services required longer approval time which caused delaying renewal time or negotiation. Moreover, some services or licenses were managed by individual department, inconveniently for these items to run smoothly and inter-departmentally, securities needed to implement for multiple departments for each license. Additionally, our data is stored unstructured, also difficult to keep track and be informed quickly in just a glance.
Apparently, creating a platform where all data and information are stored yet decentralized by items needed to be deployed. Before, storing, updating, and analyzing information using only Microsoft Excel is no longer an ideal tool. Power Platform (Power Apps, Power Automate, Microsoft 365, Teams, Sharepoint Online…etc) – the user-friendly low code platform for digital transformation came in handy while all app templates are ready to use, all data and information are stored and available to view but also confidential.
After fully considering the struggle, xspera APAC has implemented their knowledge about PowerApps on Client tenant. This allows employees and managers to interact directly on the modern workplace called Microsoft Teams, only on the permitted items. Likewise, for their employees, they can only edit the ticket or items that has been assigned to. A role-based dashboard where any “passenger” to unpermitted item could only view, unable to edit.
Moreover, this also allows client to manage their timeline efficiently, as Service Level Agreement (SLA) is automatically reminded to the employees and managers. Information is secured while being transparent is what xspera Apac being able to offer.
we were hooked when xspera Apac showed us the demo and their product know-how. Needless to say, that they did provide satisfactory service with timely feedback and support.

Fortunately, PVM Vietnam has been familiar with Microsoft 365 (O365) and Microsoft Teams, they adapted quickly to the new tool. This is a strategic step of xspera APAC where they develop the new tool and service on a familiar platform, to help employees to easily adjust and adapt.
Automatizing repetitive steps will allow them to spend more time on analyzation steps. Not only they could easily keep track of which update or change for their item has been made, they could also see the overview update of others.
Bottom line: xspera APAC provide the key tool for process automation, where unnecessary steps were automized.
