eoStar has announced that they have integrated with Microsoft as part of the digital transformation project to modernizes the way Coca-Cola Beverages Africa (CCBA) uses technology across its entire IT landscape. The integration between eoStar and Microsoft allowed CCBA to completely replace their SAP-based systems.
CCBA is Africa’s largest Coca-Cola bottler and 8th largest in the world. With 35 bottling plana-Cola in 13 countries, serving over 600,000 outlets, the need to streamline sales and distribution was essential, the statement says eoStar is a Route Accounting Software that will manage all the sales, distribution and advanced warehousing for finished goods, while D365 covers the financials, manufacturing and human resources functionality.

“CCBA will be leveraging eoStar to mobilize our sales and distribution workforce, increasing their effectiveness in the trade. eoStar will be deployed across our internal sales force, our own primary distribution capabilities and as the system of choice for our Official Coca-Cola Distributors (OCCDs) and our Logistics Distribution Partners (LDPs)”, says Joshua Motsuenyane, Chief Information Officer for CCBA.
