The client, who is already very strong in production and offline sales network, needed partners in two projects:

  • They wanted to dominate the sales in the painting supplies market with their new brand Bi’Boya.
  • They needed digital platforms for their dealers, sub-dealers and craftsman network. They also wanted us to provide them with better user experience and digital marketing management solutions.
