Since it was established, in 2011, Aquila Institute has been attaining landmarks which show the high quality of the institution and are proofs of its success.
In less than five years of operation, Aquila has increased its team to 400 professionals, working in 15 countries of three continents, serving 230 clients. Some of these clients have been with us since the beginning and have developed over the years a relationship of trust and recognition of our competence. Such is the case of Pague Menos, one of the giants of pharmaceutical retail sales. With sales of R$ 4.978 billion in 2015, the company invests in management improvement in order to sustain an average annual growth of 18% for over a decade, one of highest continuous indicators in the country.
The company has many suppliers in its routine operations. In order to acknowledge the synergy developed with some of them, the company created an annual awarding. The trophy “New conquests” acknowledges the partner organization that contributed to the attainment of results. In its 2015 edition, Aquila was awarded with the honor, received from the hands of Pague Menos’ founder, Deusmar Queirós, and of the Group Vice-President Ubiranilson Alves.
The partnership with Aquila aims at the various components of retail sales. Income, Expenses, Costs and Stocks are some of the topics analyzed and require constant attention in the 800 stores of the network. Rationalize operations and avoid chronic problems such as ruptures and losses are challenges potentialized by the huge size of Pague Menos, which plans to reach the mark of 1,000 stores by 2017.
The founder of Pague Menos, Deusmar Queirós, and the Group Vice-President, Ubiranilson Alves hand over the trophy of Prime Supplier to Aquila’s partner Newton Junior, in charge of the project.
Aquila’s Board of Directors and CEO Rodrigo Godoy present the award received from Pague Menos, together with thank-you notes from some of our 230 clients.
