Program/Special Project initiative

Description
Business Background:
P&G is focused on designing irresistibly superior products for our global consumers. Our hypothesis is that our consumers are increasingly willing to buy products that deliver delightful consumer experiences and superior outcomes, e.g., cleaning services to enjoy a continuous livable clean without the hassle, thus freeing up more personal time for more desirable experiences. Today, consumers use smart, convenient, and multi-purpose devices like smartphones, iRobot Roomba and Instant Pot Ultra to automate tasks and enjoy an efficient life without the hassle, thus freeing up more personal time for more desirable, enjoyable experiences. 

With the advancements of electronics, sensors, actuators, AI algorithm, and ubiquitous connectivity, we envision a near future world where smart products and services, connected devices and home robotics will be an indispensable part of our lives and as ubiquitous as the smartphone is today. 

Business Challenge: 
We are looking for potential partners to propose unique solutions, technologies, technology building blocks and services to automate daily in-home consumer tasks, chores and routines in meaningful, delightful and affordable ways.

• In-home Smart Ecosystems of Products, Devices and Services that enable automation of:
• Inventory management of FMCG (fast moving consumable goods)/ consumable products in the home

• Ensuring and maintaining a healthy home environment
