Leading beverage manufacturer to deploy Blue Yonder planning solution after implementation build

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Oct. 27, 2020 – MorganFranklin’s supply chain practice, formerly known as Plantensive, has announced that Coke One North America (CONA), an IT services company for Coca-Cola North American’s bottling business, has completed the core build phase of Blue Yonder’s planning solutions, led by Plantensive.

CONA Services partnered with Plantensive to design and build a single Blue Yonder planning solution across twelve bottling companies in North America.

“Plantensive joined CONA as an experienced Blue Yonder partner which was critical for us to establish this new foundation in our supply chain capabilities,” said Baron Jordan, CONA chief product officer, CONA Supply Chain. “With Blue Yonder being a new solution to CONA, our reliance on a knowledgeable partner was crucial. With this milestone, we can now plan for our North America rollout beginning Q1 2021.”

“CONA has been a tremendous partner through this transformation,” said Dan Luttner, partner for business development, Plantensive. “The sheer scale and scope of work that the joint project teams have achieved in one year is impressive.”

The project was accelerated and enabled by Plantensive’s unique toolkit and agile deployment methodology, which will continue to be scaled across bottlers during the deployment phase led by Capgemini.

“We are excited to partner with CONA on their digital supply chain transformation journey,” said Terry Turner, president, Americas Retail, Blue Yonder. “Blue Yonder’s solutions will allow CONA to have an agile supply chain that can predict disruptions, creating end-to-end visibility into its planning and the ability to pivot to meet any challenges and demands.”
