This last October weekend was an important weekend for CONA Services and its participating bottlers. With 27 sites going live at the same time it was the largest deployment on CONA so far, another important stepping stone for CONA’s challenging deployment schedule in 2017.
Locations were being added on to CONA across the country: Coca-Cola Beverages Florida (CCBF) with its first transition go-live at multiple sites in North Florida, Coca-Cola Bottling Co. Consolidated (CCBCC) with transition go-lives in Ohio, Coca-Cola Bottling Co. UNITED (CCBCU) with legacy go-lives in its home territories and Great Lakes Coca-Cola Distribution (GLCCD) with an Equipment Service transition in Chicago.
This October deployment marked an important milestone also for other reasons: These were the first go-lives on “Transition Release”, CONA Release 4. CCBCU is the first Bottler to have moved their distribution and equipment operations completely off their legacy systems on to CONA. North Florida added more users onto the new CONA SFA solution Spring with very positive feedback.
“Spring is awesome! It is intuitive and nice to get a sales tool that was obviously designed by people who know what we need in the field.”
Congratulations to all bottlers and the CONA Services Team for this great effort!
