MARLBOROUGH, MA -- Quantiphi, an applied artificial intelligence (AI) and big data solutions and services company, has been presented with the inaugural Coke One North America (CONA) Innovation Partner of the Year Award.

Quantiphi and CONA Services, an IT solutions and innovation provider to Coca-Cola's bottling businesses, have been jointly working on advanced AI, machine learning (ML) and big data solutions to optimize sales and operations performance for its bottling partners.

OrderSmart and VendPrime, scalable solutions powered by cutting-edge AI, jointly developed by Quantiphi and CONA services, can analyze large volumes of data and provide actionable insights for bottlers, enabling them to function efficiently with accurate forecasting.

With the successful implementation, Quantiphi and CONA are focused on extending the benefits of implementing AI/ML solutions for transforming core business models and creating innovations and opportunities in the bottling business to optimize product sales, logistics and warehouse operations.

The VendPrime solution combines collaborative filtering and popular demand to generate real-time recommendations for Coca-Cola vending machines across North America. This helped to drive sales growth and reduce the amount of product that sat untouched in the machines.

OrderSmart is a forecasting solution that provides SKU-level estimates for each store in CONA Services' entire North American convenience retail landscape. The project successfully forecasts the sales of nearly 170,000 convenience stores across North America and applies additional store specific context to generate a draft order for field sales associates. Bottlers choose to redeploy in-outlet efficiencies generated as a result in a variety of ways.
