Launch of Pernod Ricard’s new website
More than an information space, an interactive, innovative and living platform
Press release - Paris, 27 September 2012
The new Pernod Ricard website went live on 26 September, the day the 2011/12 Annual Report was filed on the Pernod Ricard and the AMF (Autorité des Marchés Financiers) websites. Pernod Ricard presents a more ergonomically intuitive web site featuring a resolutely modern design. Enhanced with videos, interviews and even a “predictive” search engine, it now makes it easier to access all of the Group’s developments. You can still find financial and human resources news, as well as the latest achievements in social responsibility, but the new web site also creates multiple links between the various content categories. A “tagging” system also allows for cross-referencing of information. This functionality makes it possible for any user to personalise their internet experience. Developed according to the most recent web standards, the new site allows for a very rapid download speed. A new element in the digital ecosystem of the Group (Twitter, applications, etc.), the web site now offers cross-browser compatibility (computers, tablets and smartphones).
The visual identity was developed by Havas Worldwide France (formerly Euro-RSCG C&O) under the leadership of Christophe Coffre, Creative Director.
“The rationale of the new corporate Pernod Ricard website is to offer internet users a new way to experience the Pernod Ricard brand.”
Agathe Bousquet, Deputy Managing Director of Havas Worldwide Paris and Pernod Ricard Account Manager at the agency, recalls how the site was conceived: "We were inspired by the creative momentum of the Group and its brands. We wish to make the user feel this creative drive, and I believe that, thanks to the new possibilities offered by digital media, we have succeeded."
According to Olivier Cavil, Communications Vice-President of Pernod Ricard: “The rationale of the new corporate Pernod Ricard website is to offer internet users a new way to experience the Pernod Ricard brand. Both comprehensive and intuitive, the site totally immerses you in the world of the global co-leader in wines and spirits. Decidedly modern and innovative, it echoes the many digital developments launched by the brands in our portfolio.” <
