Everybody comes into contact with an Avento customer, every hour of every day.

When eating breakfast, filling up with fuel, in the newsagent’s, in the supermarket, during lunch, at a party… From dawn to dusk, you come across fast moving consumer goods that are sold in the market thanks to Avento: cheese and ham from Vache Bleue, lettuce from Florette, drinks from AA Drinks, smoothies designed by Innocent Drinks, Fruitella or other treats from the Perfetti Van Melle range, Java coffee, Fisker coins, tasty wines distributed by AdVini, A Westmalle, Gouden Carolus or maybe a Duvel?

FA-BU-BLEU OR BLUE SPARK? FRISK OR KLENE? FEARLESS LEADER SUCCEEDS ON INTERNATIONAL STAGE
11-10-2021

Does a store check in Chelsea differ from a store check in Nanterre? Will the share of shelf be calculated differently in a Carrefour or a Tesco? Does Territory Management, where you draft your schedules, differ according to the spoken language? No, of course not. Blue Spark from Innocent Drinks – a refreshing drink with apple, lime and coconut water – tastes exactly the same in France but is called Fa-Bu-Bleu. And the originally Belgian peppermints from Frisk, or the licorice drops from Klene, both tasty treats from Perfetti Van Melle, lie on the same shelves at the same strategic points in both the Netherlands and Belgium.

“I help to sell beer, love beer and also brew beer. Exceptional beer!”    

From marketing a brewery to a specialised app and now onto the hop boiler – that is the route that Steven De Backer, product manager of Avento Fearless Leader, has taken. “I have a professional background in marketing beer and, for the past few years, have been actively involved in the ongoing improvement of Avento Fearless Leader, the CRM package that is popular with many of the well-known breweries. So, I thought, let’s try it out in practice and make an excellent beer. After all, brewers will always tell you that their beer is different, better… So, I thought, why not brew a special beer of my own?”

There is an experienced pollster in every field worker
17-06-2021

In fact, there is an experienced pollster in Fearless Leader. Sometimes, a field worker is expected to go the extra mile and asked to record qualitative, detailed information instead of just figures and orders. For example, when there are seasonal changes, a rival is running a promotion, the hospitality industry is opening up again… How large is the terrace’s surface area? Are there parasols? It is then of vital importance that the field workers – ALL field workers –  are provided with the same set of questions for gathering data. Read more >
