Launch of Coke One
Coke One started out as a global program focusing on bottler process and data standards. 10 international Franchise Bottlers participated in this program and decided for a collaborative approach rather than investing separately in building IT capabilities to advance their business. Coke One impacted activities that accounted for 80% of the spending. It was a convincing and substantial business case.
Tailor Coke One to the North American Market
After Coke One was successfully rolled out in different bottling organizations all over the world, the task was to tailor the global template to the North American market. With the launch of Coke One North America the team set out to become an integral part of one of the most important strategic initiatives in the history of Coca-Cola –the implementation of a 21st Century Beverage Partnership Model.
CONA Services LLC has its operational go-live
3 years later, to strengthen the overall business model of the Coca-Cola bottling refranchising in North America, the six largest Coca-Cola Bottlers announced the formation of an information technology services company, CONA Services LLC.
2017 / 2018

CONA is running one of the largest single instance, Software as a Service environments in the world.
