Coca-Cola Freestyle Data Collection
Coca-Cola Freestyle is a touch screen soda fountain introduced by The Coca-Cola Company in 2009. The machine is able to dispense over 125 different Coca-Cola drink products and custom flavors. This machine allows consumers to select from mixtures of flavors of Coca-Cola products which are then individually dispensed. Not only this drink provides abundance of choice of drinks to consumers, it also provides valuable data collection of customer’s consumption. On a daily basis, each machine is able to gather data related to the performance of the machine, micro-dose cartridge usage and also beverage consumption. All Coca-Cola Freestyle fountains are connected to Coca-Cola network and are constantly reporting sales data by brand, location and day. To ensure continual replenishment of beverage in the Freestyle machine, the system will capture detailed data on every order and the remaining quantities of each beverage. This consumption data is then collected and inserted into SAP enhanced SNC module, where it will then be consolidated by outlet. From the website, Supply Network Collaboration is a web based application for company to be used to communicate orders and forecast information to their supplier.
The consumption history for each beverage is then used to plan future forecast demand hence allowing Coca-Cola to calculate their replenishment order. By processing this data every night, Coca-Cola can calculate and create replenishment order cycle for any machine that requires it, then automatically process the orders and send them to the distribution center for shipping to the outlet.
