Describe the challenges and key objectives
There were two main challenges: find a strategy to achieve harmony in the point of sale, valuing the display of Continental products and bringing the brand closer to its consumers.
And create a technical equation that could enable the system to work in different situations of the point of sale and have a very simple logistics and assembly system, allowing the team of promoters to have a crucial role in its implementation.
Therefore, the system should be complete enough to comply with all different needs and simple enough to be understood by members of the customer's trade marketing team.
