Coca-Cola Hellenic

CCH Österreich

The company

Coca-Cola Hellenic (CCH) Austria is the exclusive distributor of all Coca-Cola prod-ucts and serves the entire Austrian market. The company’s 1,000 employees in Austria work at production facilities, sales centers and distribution centers. CCH Austria is a subsidiary of the Coca-Cola Hellenic Bottling Company and is one of the largest bottlers of non-alcoholic soft drinks in Europe. Its ongoing investments and value creation ratio above 50% make Coca-Cola Hellenic Austria a fixture in the Austrian economy.

An optimized supply chain with eXite®

CCH strives to perfect its relationship with its clients, in an effort to ensure the very best performance on the market. Primarily, CCH relies on collaboration and partner-ships that translate into long-term added value and profitable business growth for both CCH and its clients in all distribution channels. For successful implementation, CCH uses Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) and EDI services provided by EDITEL.

At CCH, EDI is used for order, delivery and invoicing processes as well as for inventory management, which helped optimize large parts of the logistics chain. This also includes the implementation of logistics concepts such as VMI (Vendor Managed Inventory) and CPRF (Collaborative Planning, Forecasting and Replenishment), where CCH in its role as supplier takes care of inventory planning for retail clients.

Now that we implemented EDI messages and use them with our clients (approxi-mately 35,000 messages per month), we have an overview of our clients’ processes, which helps us understand their needs and allows us to adapt processes on our end.

Successful implementation of e-Invoice

As part of REWE’s EDI initiative, CCH also implemented electronic invoice processing (e-Invoice). No downstream systems are required and all electronic invoice data is archived in the EDITEL archive. This ensures that all invoices are processed smoothly. In the case of a tax audit, data can be retrieved, viewed and downloaded via a user interface.

Another area in which Coca-Cola Hellenic Austria relied on the support of EDITEL was the successful implementation of invoicing processes to the federal government. For this purpose, data is converted into the ebInterface format required by the federal government and invoices are sent to the federal agencies in question in a safe and traceable manner. Without the need for any additional implementation, CCH can use its trusted eXite® interface to send invoices to the federal government.

Top EDI performance in the HORECA industry

In recent years, EDI has been in high demand in the hotel and chain restaurant industry. The primary focus is the full automation of procurement of goods processes, ranging from orders (ORDERS) and despatch advices (DESADV) to invoices. Dussmann, EUREST, Sodexo and Interspar Restaurants are just a few companies and supply chain partners of CCH who have successfully introduced EDI as one of their key technologies.
