The Gurgaon, India branch of international confectioner Perfetti Van Melle wanted to transform their work space into a smart office with innovative technologies that would boost efficiency and enhance communications both within the office and with external partners.
Perfetti Van Melle worked with BenQ, who were able to offer a complete selection of large-format displays that satisfied the many requirements of a smart office. By combining 4K fidelity with cable-free connectivity and easy video networking, BenQ was able to offer convenience that competitors couldn’t match.
Both management and workers have been extremely pleased with the smart office transformation. The new displays have reduced the need to travel, and also allowed workers to maintain social distancing. Furthermore, the displays allow visitors to see images of Perfetti Van Melle’s confections in stunning ultra HD quality and lifelike color.

Perfetti Van Melle Gurgaon implements BenQ large-format displays to Improve Meetings and Communication
Perfetti Van Melle has operated in India for over two decades, offering a wide variety of confections that include famous products such as Mentos and Chupa Chups. Over the last 26 years of operation in India, Perfetti Van Melle has continued to grow both locally and abroad, with sales surpassing €2.5 billion in recent years.
With growth, however, also come growing pains. In light of this, the Gurgaon branch of Perfetti Van Melle began looking into ways that they could enhance their office space in order to maintain a first-rate working environment. Management wanted to find ways to beautify the workspace, improve communication, reduce travel expenditures, and boost efficiency. The most sensible solution to tackle these issues was to transition to a smart office arrangement. But where would the Perfetti Van Melle Gurgaon office staff find the expertise necessary to make such a drastic shift?
While many companies sell equipment that can facilitate a high-tech office, finding one that will work together with a business to design a smart environment is a greater challenge. After consulting with many vendors, Perfetti Van Melle found that BenQ would not only offer all the required equipment, but also jointly work to develop a proof of concept before beginning renovation. BenQ’s eagerness to work with Perfetti Van Melle from start to finish was a major boon.
Equally important was the quality and breadth of BenQ’s technology. In the past, Perfetti Van Melle had trouble holding meetings of more than 10 to 15 people. BenQ’s large-format displays helped Perfetti Van Melle overcome this limitation in two ways. With the help of BenQ Corporate Displays and Interactive Displays, meeting attendees are able to sit further away from the screen yet still see meeting content clearly, which allows more people to comfortably participate. Yet equally important are the video conferencing features built in to BenQ displays. BenQ’s exclusive InstaShare software, which is compatible not only with BenQ displays but also with smartphones and laptops, allows employees to participate in meetings from anywhere, whether in the office, on a business trip, or even abroad. InstaShare also makes it possible to mirror content on a screen, allowing participants to conveniently share any information they’ve found or content they’ve developed, as well as notes they’ve written with BenQ’s EZWrite software. These features have made meetings both easier to schedule and more communicative, boosting efficiency and productivity.
Finally, BenQ’s products have also made an impact on Perfetti Van Melle’s branding. Now when visitors step into the office, they’re greeted by images and videos of Perfetti Van Melle products on stunning 4K displays. Showcasing these tantalizing treats in true color with impeccable clarity strengthens Perfetti Van Melle’s brand image by reinforcing the quality of their products, enlivening the office atmosphere and brightening the mood of employees and visitors alike.
Positive vibes took hold of the office as soon as the smart renovation was complete and have continued to grow since. With the new BenQ smart office technology, managers and other staff at Perfetti Van Melle have been able to increase communication quality with confection factories and other branches in India, while at the same time reducing travel time and associated costs. BenQ’s technology has left such a strong impression that senior staff at the Gurgaon branch are already recommending BenQ large-format displays and voice conferencing technology to other Perfetti Van Melle branches, both in India and abroad. With the help of BenQ’s tech expertise, Perfetti Van Melle’s confectionery business is now sweeter than ever.
