Nokia Lumia Smartphones to Be Used in Select Sales Operations for The Coca-Cola 
Company 
ESPOO, FINLAND -- (Marketwire) -- 02/22/13 --  Nokia has announced
that Nokia Lumia smartphones will be used by select sales forces of
The Coca-Cola Company in Vietnam and Cambodia. The devices will be
used on a daily basis by sales associates in those markets for order
processing, equipment validation and market execution improvement. 
Nokia Lumia smartphones offer Coca-Cola employees full support for
Microsoft(TM) Office on the Microsoft(TM) Windows Phone 8 platform,
allowing easy synchronization with Microsoft Exchange, SharePoint,
Lync and Office365 as well as seamless integration with Outlook. The
features enable employees to work flexibly and remotely with secure
access to all their corporate data and systems. 
Business level security also comes as standard on Nokia Lumia, with
hardware-accelerated encryption, secure boot, sandboxed apps and
remote device management capabilities. The high level security means
that should an employee misplace their smartphone, confidential
company information is still protected. 
"Our collaboration with Nokia and Microsoft enables us to utilize our
sales automation and market execution tools on two very progressive
platforms," said Javier Polit, Chief Information Officer of the
Bottling Investments Group, The Coca-Cola Company. "We will be able
to activate our teams with capabilities that enable us to further
improve our execution and customer services by obtaining actionable
insights. The Nokia Lumia and Microsoft platform fit our enterprise
landscape well." 
"By combining the Windows 8 platform with eye-catching design and
innovative technologies, we have created smartphones that ensure
Coca-Cola employees can operate flexibly across multiple geographies
and time zones and still remain fully productive," said Stephanie
Mosticchio, enterprise sales manager for North America at Nokia. 
"Providing seamless synchronization with Windows Phone 8 and
Microsoft Office, Nokia Lumia smartphones enable Coca-Cola employees
to work as effectively on the go as they would in the workplace."
