The new system will act as a hub for ambitious data driven and personalised marketing activity for Acino, who recently recorded a turnover of over €250m, as the company continues to develop, manufacture and market medicines to over 80 countries in the Middle East, Africa, Latin America and Asia.

Andy Nicol, MD of Sputnik Digital, said: “This relationship highlights our dedication to provide bespoke digital systems to ambitious international businesses.

“I’m delighted to be working with Acino, our services will further enhance their unique position in distributing medicine in challenging territories.”

Sputnik has also worked with the likes of Swinton Insurance and The Priory Group.

Ulrike Seminati, head of corporate communications at Acino, added: “We were impressed by Sputnik’s pro-active and structured approach to such a complex task.

“Already, we are appreciating their professional input which will add extra value to our corporate website offering and their preciseness in implementing design and content.”
