About the Customer

Equatorial Coca-Cola Bottling Company engages in soft drink bottling and distribution. The company was founded in 1997 and is based in Barcelona, Spain.

ECCBC operates in 13 countries in North and West Africa. Founded in 1997 as a joint venture between a Spanish Bottler Company and The Coca-Cola Export Co, the organization produces, markets and distributes world famous soft drinks including Coke, Diet Coke, Fanta, and Sprite. It has a turnover of over 600 million euros and employs 6,000 people.

Scope and Challenges

Rapid growth for ECCBC over recent years has created a number of business challenges based around central governance. With multiple types of software being used by different companies in the group, the company was struggling to achieve full visibility over the business from its headquarters in Barcelona, Spain.

In addition, regional operations were changing processes locally and planning their own purchases.

Outcome and Implications

ECCBC has been an Epicor customer since 2003, using Epicor iScala for finance and supply chain management in 11 of its territories. In 2016 ECCBC continues to partner with Epicor to implement central purchasing and manufacturing processes, as well as financial data consolidation. 

Epicor ERP will be initially rolled out in Ghana, with the technology expected to go live by the end of 2016. Seven other country operations will follow, including Mauritania, Gambia, Guinea, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Equatorial Guinea, and the Cape Verde Islands.


Cayetano Rodriguez, chief information officer at ECCBC commented, “As an international company, one of our core values, and a benchmark for our management model, is for business processes to operate efficiently, and uniformly. With our business growth across the region, we needed a flexible ERP solution that could be governed centrally but used locally by teams based out of our eight sites. Crucially, we needed access to accurate real-time business data that could be held in one place to provide transparency of operations across all of our local businesses.”
