 In News Releases

Diamond Beverages has revolutionized operations with state-of-the-art business management software, powering seamless management of 70,000 customers and 30,000 items. 


Delhi, India: Diamond Beverages (DBPL), a leading Coca-Cola bottler in India, has successfully implemented Microsoft Dynamics 365 Finance & Operations (D365 F&O) and the OnActuate Bottling Solution in collaboration with OnActuate, a global expert in digital transformations. 

“With this agile and automated integrated business system, DBPL can expedite their workflows and increase efficiency by streamlining previously complex processes,” said Ashish Sharan, Co-founder and VP – Solutions, OnActuate. “Additionally, D365 F&O enhances inventory tracking and clarity, ultimately driving increased sales.” 

Zero downtime and rapid sales invoice creation 

Prior to this implementation, DBPL had been running multiple legacy ERP systems. By transitioning to Dynamics 365, DBPL was able to unite these systems under one platform, utilizing data and insights to make informed decisions and streamline business processes.

DBPL partnered with OnActuate due to their expertise in Microsoft Dynamics implementations, process-centric approach to the project, and knowledge of bottling operations.  

DBPL went live on D365 F&O across all legal entities and 31 virtual warehouses in March 2024 with minimal business downtime and zero impact on daily sales. The new system manages over 70,000 customers and 30,000 items. DBPL is now able to process approximately 150,000 sales invoice lines for route sales daily and has achieved rapid creation of multi-line sale invoices within approximately 7 seconds.   

Supporting DBPL’s growth and sustainability goals 

In April 2024, The Coca-Cola Company and Microsoft revealed an exciting five-year partnership aimed at driving forward cloud and generative AI initiatives. As a company deeply committed to innovation and delivering tangible results, Coca-Cola bottler DBPL exemplifies these values by leveraging cutting-edge technology to enhance logistics efficiency across its supply chain. A prime illustration of this commitment is evident in DBPL’s utilization of the Empties Management feature within the OnActuate Bottling Solution, showcasing the bottler’s dedication to mitigating environmental impact.

“OnActuate proficiency in Dynamics 365, combined with their dedication to understand our organization’s unique requirements, facilitated the seamless execution of this project,” said Kulwant Chhabra, CIO, DBPL. “With our aim to lead as a top bottling unit and drive sustainable growth, OnActuate proved to be the ideal partner, guiding us closer to this objective through their expert knowledge and steadfast support throughout the project.”
