CONA Services collaborated with EoStar by Rutherford and SAP to address the need for better collaboration, increased transparency, and trust between Coca-Cola bottlers. What we developed was a Blockchain solution built on Hyperledger Fabric that allows the bottlers to have seamless IT system integration for Bottler-to-Bottler sales processes. The solution brings immediate benefits to the seller (United) and buyer (C.C. Clark) by automating order creating, order receiving and reconciliation processes. We believe that Blockchain will allow us to build a better ecosystem of distributed applications for all bottlers and enable them to communicate and transact more efficiently.
