Hunt Valley, MD, March 18, 2021 - SAI, a software products and consulting firm, today announced that Coca-Cola Consolidated recently began a pilot with Acadia to improve process execution in its bottling, warehousing, and distribution operations.
Acadia decreases costs and improves performance across an organization through standardization of One Best Way work processes, compliance tracking, and job aid distribution.
“It is critical for us to have a high level of engagement with our team members to ensure we deliver a high-quality product as efficiently as possible. Acadia will help us provide easy access to the right training and job instructions, at the right time, to all our operators. It will also empower them to provide feedback on how we can improve our processes over time,” said Jimmy Hassler, Director of Quality, Coca-Cola Consolidated.
“We’ve seen firsthand how companies like Coca-Cola Consolidated that genuinely care about improving team members’ capabilities can quickly enable change. The more engaged and informed the frontline team members are, the more effective operations become. When that happens across the business, team members become more capable and corporate financial outcomes improve substantially,” said Ric Hughes, CEO SAI.
“Our first step – like all Acadia implementations – will begin with a single, actionable use case. That first project helps us identify the Coke Consolidated KPIs we need to track to gauge our progress. Being tightly integrated with those metrics will ensure Coca-Cola Consolidated has the analytics they need to quickly spread best practices across the organization.”
