  • 15 August, 2005 14:54

<p>Sydney, Australia — August 15, 2005 — Soft drink giant Coca-Cola Amatil (CCA) has selected LANSA and KAZ Technology Services as key technology partners to develop new strategic IT solutions that will drive the CCA business forward.</p>
<p>Paul Harnisch, Applications Portfolio Manager, Operations &amp; Logistics at Coca-Cola Amatil, explained, ”The first project we used LANSA on was a manufacturing reliability reporting system and despite the learning curve the team went through, we were able to deliver it on time and in full. The next project to be developed using LANSA was a web based national Driver Payments System (DPS) which we would not have been able to effectively deliver without the LANSA toolset."</p>
<p>A third project, Promotions Modeling, is also under development. This is a browser based, graphical application which provides a platform for determining a mutually profitable promotional program for CCA and its major retail customers.</p>
<p>Peter McNamee, chief information officer at Coca-Cola Amatil, said, “LANSA fits in our drive to get IT back under our own control and to improve IT’s value to the business. LANSA provides a productive way to modernize our systems, while leveraging existing business knowledge in our team and keeping costs down.”</p>
<p>"IT's importance lies in its ability to help innovation. The value and currency of IT is measured by how much we have improved the company's bottom line. Technology should not be the focus, but rather an enabler to improve business. This mind-set is reflected in our team and in the tools that we use to build our solutions. We are confident that LANSA will provide CCA with a platform to both modernize and extend our core systems over the next three to five years."</p>
<p>Paul Gandell, LANSA’s Australian General Manager, said, “CCA went through a very extensive evaluation of development tools and put the short listed candidates through at rigorous evaluation exercise. We are very proud to have been selected.”</p>
<p>Mike Bottomley, Client Services Manager at KAZ Technology Services, adds, "KAZ is looking forward to an expanded role working with CCA. We highly value our relationship with CCA and are excited about the opportunity to help CCA achieve their IT business goals in the years to come."</p>
