Executive Overview

Coca-Cola FEMSA, S.A.B. de C.V, is the world’s largest franchise bottler of Coca-Cola trademark beverages, boasting more than two million points of sales in Latin America. To fulfill its goal for customer satisfaction, the company needed to transform its procurement function. Using one centralized digital platform to enable procurement best practices, Coca-Cola FEMSA consolidated localized purchasing capabilities and developed strategic and streamlined negotiating and buying processes. Now, the procurement team can ensure that managers, buyers, and internal customers all have the right information and technology to perform their responsibilities efficiently and effectively.

We expected to achieve cost savings in five years, but with the quick and flawless implementation of SAP Ariba solutions, we achieved them in three. It’s a win for everyone – our buyers, our managers, and our internal customers.
