Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG) is a $1.3 trillion sector still dominated by traditional channels. But, according to the World Economic Forum, online sales will grow from around 10% today to 40% in 2027. Therefore, digital commerce represents a huge opportunity.
The internet has changed consumer behavior forever. Today, the path to purchase includes social media, apps, internet research, in-store visits, and online purchase, and not in this particular order.
As consumers move rapidly between the online and physical world, they expect consistent product information along their individual paths to purchase. They demand deeper details than just the label info. For this reason, companies without accurate and robust product data may experience lower online purchases, higher product returns, lower customer experience and a serious risk of brand damage.
WHAT ARE THE KEY DRIVERS FOR THIS NEW PRODUCT DATA PARADIGM?

Believing in your bold ideas to change the world Hi, my name is Jessica. I am a final year Chemical Engineering student at the University of Indonesia and the Schneider Go Green 2019 country finalist for Indonesia. Winning Go Green has been a unique life experience that has allowed me to grow and learn more about myself. Let me share with you some personal takeaways from this global competition.
Discovering an exciting competition Last semester, my good friend Aziza convinced me to join a competition called Schneider Go Green. It is a global competition organized every year by Schneider Electric, which is a company that I did not know well at that time. Since I’m a very spontaneous person, I immediately jumped on the opportunity to join the competition with Aziza. To be honest, I also did not know much about Go Green. Aziza and I checked the previous Go Green winning ideas and the more ideas we saw, the less certain we were on what submitting a bold idea really meant… What is a bold i..

Unveiling hidden potential from the east! Indonesia is the world’s largest archipelago country, with more than seventeen thousand islands. The largest are Sumatra, Java, Borneo, Sulawesi, and Papua. Among these big five islands, Papua is the largest and easternmost province of Indonesia. It is known for its richness of natural resources along with the hidden potential of its people. Truly a latent treasure that is ready to be unveiled. As an advocate for diversity inclusion, I wanted to make sure that Papuan’s were exposed to equal career opportunities.
Two years ago, I joined Schneider Electric Indonesia. On the 1st month of embarking on my journey with the organization, I had a simple question in mind, “How many eastern Indonesian young talents are in this company?” and the answer made me ponder a bit as it was only less than 10 people or I could count them with my 2 hands at the very least.
You might be wondering why I was so concerned with the eastern young talent population in t..

Of all the risks that face modern commercial buildings, electrical fires are one of the most common and damaging. Fire endangers health, property and the business itself – half of all organisations that suffer a fire close within the next five years. It’s a danger organization can’t afford to ignore.
Fires can strike at any time and without warning, so businesses should be empowered by the latest technologies to prevent them before they can build to a crisis. Consultant engineers have a real opportunity to show leadership in improving safety, stepping beyond the minimum requirements to protect their business and its most valuable assets.
Who are the key stakeholders? During the design and implementation phase, the consultant engineer’s role is traditionally to respect and master the local standards. They should ensure all components and parts of the circuit comply with the latest wiring rules, electrical and building codes. Yet for enhanced safety they should also be willing to look ..

A number of trends are converging in the industry resulting in an opportunity to adopt new data center cooling strategies that deliver lower up-front costs for cooling systems as well as significant operational savings over the lifetime of the data center.
Trends Driving Changes in Data Center Cooling The first trend has its roots in a recommendation the American Society of Heating, Refrigeration, and Air conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) made years ago: that companies should raise the operating temperature of their data centers to 80°F (27°C) or more in some cases. Old habits die hard, but more and more companies are getting the message that it’s safe to raise data center operating temperatures. Doing so saves money on cooling costs, which account for about 40% of data center power usage.
Another trend is that data centers are getting both larger and smaller. Internet giants, cloud service providers and other large companies continue to build massive centralized data centers to keep u..

Valve Actuators can be classified into two types based on their motion. The two primary types of actuators are commonly referred to as rotary and linear. Rotary actuators turn an object by a few degrees in a circular motion—which could be limited or an infinite number. Linear actuators, on the other hand, move an object along a straight line, generally in back and forth motion.
A good example of rotary actuator is an electric motor used in power management and network connectivity. An electric motor is fundamentally an actuator that transforms an electrical signal into a rotating motion of its shaft. When a basic motor is subjected to a current, the motor rotates. Connect or link a motor directly to a load – this leads to the creation of a direct drive rotary actuator.
Many rotary actuators are integrated with mechanisms that are effectively used as mechanical levers (an advantage) to reduce rotational speed and increase torque. The output of this assembly is a rotary actuator if the..

My Winning Prize for the 2018 Schneider Go Green student competition Winning moment of Schneider Go Green 2018
It all started with winning the Schneider Go Green global student competition in 2018 that I had to choose two cities to visit as part of the prize. Choosing the two countries was a bit tough especially considering the fact that the cities had to be chosen from over 100 countries where Schneider Electric has offices. However, finally, I sifted through and ended up choosing Canada and Australia. To me, the decision on countries was based on the mix of countries that I was always aspired to visit and as well as countries where Schneider Electric was vibrant.
Exploring Schneider Electric Canada I started by visiting Toronto, Canada for a week. While I was there I had a great time interacting with Schneider Electric employees. I had a chance to have one on one discussions with Schneider Electric experts and further networked with my peers, learning what it was like to be part of..

If you were asked to define ‘home’ in just a few words, which ones would you choose? Some will highlight the ideal house with a picket fence. Others will mention general qualities like safety and warmth. But, once you start thinking about the answer, it’s more than words that come to mind. Feelings tug at your heart and the word takes on a totally new meaning.
I’ve been living away from my Colombia for almost two years. Defining home when you’re away from your own country can be hard. As an expatriate working at Schneider Electric, I caught myself wondering on and off about this topic and its meaning for two main reasons. First, because we, as a company, develop integrated solutions for homes to make them safe, reliable and secure. And second, because I know many colleagues at Schneider who took risks in their careers and went abroad to pursue their dreams.
This blog series was created to understand the concept of home and its meaning by discovering the unique stories of Schneider El..

There are leaves all over the ground on this afternoon in Franklin, Tennessee, USA. Fall is coming to an end and it’s gotten colder. Carlos Navarro, Offer Marketing Director for Power Systems, starts telling his story. He was born and raised in Barcelona, Spain and has a deep connection to the sea. He joined Schneider Electric’s Barcelona office in 2002 as a Product Manager for Masterpact in low voltage products. Carlos has gone on to work in three other countries for Schneider.
Natalia Pachón: How has your career evolved since the day you joined the company?
Carlos Navarro: I stayed [as Product Manager for] five years. At that time, I took [on] more responsibilities than product management. I was also in charge of different, big projects in low voltage, including several product lines.
In July 2007, I moved to Grenoble in France as Business Development Manager for the low voltage products. I was in charge of Compact and Masterpact and it was for a big geographical area: North [Amer..
