Coca-Cola Bottling Company Quenches Its Thirst For Spend Optimization With Coupa

Coupa Brings Mobility and Unparalleled Adoption to Hundreds of Users

SAN MATEO, Calif. – February 5, 2013 – Coupa Software, the leader of cloud-based spend optimization solutions, today announced that Coca-Cola Bottling Co. Consolidated (NASDAQ:COKE), the nation’s largest independent Coca-Cola bottler, has successfully rolled out its Coupa implementation. Coca-Cola Bottling Co. Consolidated (CCBCC) decided to swap out its legacy e-procurement platform and chose Coupa for its requisition to order process and for importing invoice information into one of its existing systems.

When evaluating spend optimization solutions, CCBCC really wanted a platform that would support mobile users in the field who rely heavily on iPads and iPhones to conduct business. They had poor user adoption rates with their legacy procurement solution, and they desired a much more intuitive solution that would boost adoption. Coupa supported all of CCBCC’s requirements for its 1,200-person user base. Coupa is also seamlessly integrated to Coca-Cola Bottling’s SAP ERP platform.

Our goal at CCBCC is to make, sell and deliver products better than anyone else in our market,” said Patrick Hopkins, procurement director of CCBCC. “Coupa is one of the technology solutions that is critical for us to sustain that goal. We had a very smooth transition to Coupa which is exactly what you want to see with the deployment of any new technology.”

When the deployment went live, CCBCC users were up and running almost instantly,” said Ravi Thakur, vice president, Services, Customers Success and Adoption for Coupa. “The support phones were quiet on day one, which is a testament to the ease-of-use of Coupa’s platform, and iPhone and iPad users immediately started placing orders for items they needed to keep their operations flowing. With such a successful rollout, we know that CCBCC is on its way to gaining better control over its procurement processes.”
