Challenge

DTC to bridge the gap

Coca Cola Hellenic Bottling Company (Coca Cola HBC) is one of world's largest bottlers for the Coca-Cola Company serving 600M+ consumers in 28 countries across 3 continents. Coca Cola HBC operates a beverage delivery service called Qwell by Valser which started back in 1961.

Customer behaviour is changing fast. Like most CPG companies who use marketplaces or third-parties, Coca Cola HBC lacked purchasing and consumer data in it's Qwell business, didn’t have a clear understanding of their digital channels and couldn’t reach and interact with their consumers directly.

The aspiration of the company was to be the most convenient and innovative beverage delivery service in the market. In order to do this Coca Cola HBC needed to switch to a full e-ordering digital sales system and gain control over its data and marketing communications. They wanted to move to a DTC (Direct to Consumer) model and platform for its beverage delivery service, Qwell.

Solution 

360-degree view of the customer
