How to get your customers their high-quality products in the right time, at the right place?
The ideal scenario for any manufacturing or retail company, as well as their customers, is to always have a smooth production process, ensuring the highest possible quality, the right number of products in stock at all times, as well as a dreamy logistics chain where the customer get the right products delivered on the right time, and at the right place. Of course, this scenario is backed up with automated systems for production and logistics, as well as SAP S/4HANA enabled real-time data and the valuable insights it provides.
But an ideal scenario is not always the case, is it? Failure in the production and logistics chain causes major headaches for companies, their customers and the cash flow. What needs to be changed in order to ensure a smooth production process, a smart logistics chain and a best-in-class customer journey and experience? Is purely technology the answer?

What are Connected Coolers and how do they make a difference?
In todays world, beverage coolers powered by the Internet of Things (IoT), streamline stocking, improve sales and bring motivated customers directly to your store are much more than just coolers. We call these coolers the Connected Coolers. The connected coolers provide customer insights such as where they are and exactly when they want their beverage. They also identify failing coolers, predicting maintenance needs. They detect low inventory when service units are near, ensuring you are never out of stock of refreshing beverages on a hot summer day.
By adding IoT sensors to the coolers, Coca-Cola Hellenic Bottling Company was able to integrate data, improving customer engagement and asset optimization. Atos helped identify new opportunities: address customer demand at a moment’s notice, ensure popular product supply, leverage its assets to drive the best efficiency and sales, predict maintenance and product quality and on-shelf product inventory before issues arise, ensure cooler purity through planogram ensured by Artificial Intelligence (AI) like image recognition.
Coca-Cola Hellenic Bottling Company worked with Atos to establish a connected environment with customers and shoppers by implementing the first mass-rollout of Atos Codex Connected Cooler solution. Watch the video to see more:
For Coca-Cola Hellenic Bottling Company, we collected data from thousands of beverage coolers, tracking critical areas like door openings, temperatures, lights, and power and images. These data were turned into valuable business insights through advanced analytics and AI. The insights led to new customer applications, engaging customer experiences, cross-selling opportunities and new offers. This increased the sales by 10% and operational efficiency by 20%. This was all done while guaranteeing data security and trust.
In this way, Coca-Cola Hellenic Bottling Company started their journey towards digitalizing the marketplace and establishing a connected environment with their customers and shoppers. This environment allows the company to accelerate their speed to market and improve operational efficiency, while at the same time gaining more insightful market analytics to better engage with their consumers.

What would it mean for your business if every decision related to sales, production, and logistics planning was based on real-time customer behavior data?
A combination of forces is causing major disruption for the logistics industry. With globalization, supply chains are becoming ever more complex and tightly managed, increasing the pressures on logistics companies.
The utility business model must change. With the SAP S/4HANA 2025 migration deadline approaching and the implementation rate increasing, more industry verticals are beginning to realize the benefits of a digital S/4HANA core.
Businesses have started to experiment with Machine Learning and develop solutions with promising business cases. Converging with technologies of Cloud, Mobile, IoT and Analytics together, it is setting the stage for future enterprise applications.
In preparing for this year’s TechEd in Barcelona I had lots of walks with my dog trying to explain to her why I believe that creating a private option for the SAP Cloud Platform product is a brilliant move towards solving a number of challenges.
Many companies have arrived at a dead end. Their products look like their competitors’ and are of similar quality. Their prices are just as squeezed as their competitors. How to differentiate in the future? How to add value for the customers?
Optimization, automation, and new digital services are top of the agenda. The challenge is that companies often spend time aligning different IT vendors’ different technological platforms and different software.
