The Central America Bottling Corporation (CBC) is a multinational beverage corporation— operating in Central America, the Caribbean, and South America—with the industry’s largest portfolio of products in the region. It manufactures both PEPSICO products and its own products, and it also distributes these products, making it the largest beverage distributor in Central America.
Far-reaching Reliability with Sage Clarity
Since going live, the company estimates efficiency among the lines already running the software has increased by five percent. From production budget to efficiency, virtually any possible metric related to its plants is viewable in Informance. CBC can—for instance—use Informance to determine where to allocate the maintenance budget.
“Informance allows us to have more uptime in our lines by raising the productivity with the proper management tools and allows us to launch new products faster … We are very happy with what we’ve done so far, and we’ll be deploying Informance at other plants with Sage Clarity this year.”
