Company Profile:

Coca-Cola’s history began in 1886 and since then it has emerged as one of the most valued brands with a net worth of US$74 billion. The company owns and markets more than 500 beverage brands across 200+ countries. Over the last 23 years, ever since its re-entry in 1993 in India, the company has gone on to establish an unmatched portfolio of beverages. The company along with its bottling partners, through a strong network of over 2.6 million retail outlets, touches the lives of millions of consumers. Its brands are some of the most preferred and most sold beverages in the country.

Challenges:

Coca-Cola has established its manufacturing units in Kudus and Pirangut, Maharashtra, India and was looking for biometric solutions to secure the premises. Coca-Cola required individual servers at both locations. The prime requirement was to restrict unauthorised user entry into a secured area. Moreover, it required user punch i.e. events for both the locations separately. However, a shortage of power supply ports at both the locations was a major problem. Providing separate power for door locks, biometric devices and exit switches was a concern. Coca-Cola was in search of a solution where the basic requirements of user events as well as power issue for devices are solved easily.

Solution Offered:

In order to overcome the challenge, Matrix offered individual software platforms that act as a server for both locations – Kudus and Pirangut. In order to resolve the challenge that the shortage of power supply ports presented, Matrix offered its premium range of biometric device which itself offers power to door locks and exit switches. Thus, Matrix biometric solution helped in solving both the challenges faced by Coca-Cola.

Results:

The results were a restriction of unauthorised users to secure areas, a reduction of HR tasks and accurate maintenance of user data.
