In its digitalization process, pharmaceutical giant Sanofi had set ambitious goals for producing meaningful customer-facing and internal applications, leveraging the WeChat and WeChat work platform. Bringing its own talents at the center of this initiative, Sanofi wanted to involve divisions who are at the front line of its business.

It’s all about innovation and a fundamental new way of working. A lot of unlearning of old habits, and embracing a new culture. We had never achieved a project done in just three days of intense work! We are looking forward to seeing these products up and running in a couple of months.
