How Coca-Cola puts the fizz into IBP
Orchestrate performance with a connected supply chain
Integrated business planning (IBP) delivers clear benefits: Full visibility into demand and a supply chain that is agile, adaptable, resilient, and sustainable, to name a few. But what does it take to implement IBP?
Watch this webinar to hear finance and supply chain leaders with Coca-Cola Bottling share best practices and lessons learned from their IBP implementation. Coca-Cola Canada Bottling Ltd. and Coca-Cola Beverages Northeast, Inc. are Coke bottlers working with Anaplan and implementation partner, Allitix, to evolve IBP processes in financial planning and analysis (FP&A), sales forecasting (for Coke Northeast), and demand management. IBP helps these Coke bottlers limit out-of-stocks, highlight revenue opportunities, grow market share, and drive better use of working capital.
Learn about their IBP journey, including these challenges:
- Steps to prepare for the changes IBP projects bring.
- The proper process, architecture, and tools enable IBP to deliver agility and leverage to the organization.
- Considerations for where to automate processes and how to build long-term IBP capabilities.
