Become "Digital Inside & Outside": Sonepar's Digital Transformation in Motion

We were honored to be invited to the closing ceremony of the 3rd China (Shanghai) Industrial Online Fair, to share Sonepar in China's holistic approach to digital transformation with all the guests present and the livestream audience. Meet our speaker Mr.Pierre Buxeda.

At Sonepar, we are aiming at providing our customers with a fully digitalized and synchronized omnichannel experience by becoming the first "digital-inside and digital-outside" company in our field.

Therefore we see digital transformation as a mandatory step allowing our teams to offer expertise and delight to our customers while answering to future challenges and opportunities, whether in industry, building and infrastructure, or utilities.

In China, our core approach and roadmap are aligned with our global strategy and driven by a consistent adoption of Group tools and processes. Specificities of the market, of its ecosystem, and customer expectations, are also well addressed by the various local solutions we've been building along the years, such as sales hybridation tools, WeChat product platforms, customer and payment portals, etc.

Sonepar is aiming for unity, not total uniformity, and for synergies instead of sameness. With that in mind, considering the specificities of our market and country is key for us.

Once again, we'd love to thank Shanghai Industrial Internet for inviting us, for the brilliant organization of the event, which brought all of us together.

We thank Mr. Yao, Deputy District Mayor of Putuo, Mr. Ruan, Deputy Director of Shanghai Municipal Commission of Economy and Informatization, guest speakers Mr. Song, co-Founder of Zhijing Technology, Mr. Huang, Deputy General Manager of Shanghai Huaneng eCommerce for their inspiring speeches and insights on how digital transformation takes shape and is carried out in different industries.
