May 26th, 2018 – CONA is live in Canada! Over Memorial Day Weekend, CONA Services welcomed a new bottling partner: Coca Cola Refreshments Canada (CCRC). CCRC successfully went live with 62 sites across 5 time zones with over 6000 associates. For the CONA team it was not only a unique deployment for its size but also for the implementation of a new Country code, Currency, Unit of Measure, and CONA in both English and French language. See the Bottler and CONA team success in numbers in the below infographic.
This same weekend was also a big weekend for another reason, the one billionth case was produced on the CONA system Tuesday night, May 29th, 2018 in Lachine, Canada. The CONA Planning and Manufacturing Solution was first deployed in Montgomery, AL in 2016 and the journey rapidly continued from there. 5 production plants were going live now in Canada during this deployment weekend.
Congratulations and thanks due to each and every one on the teams involved.
