In its first big EMEA win, Australia-founded cloud legal matter management vendor Xakia Technologies has been selected and implemented by global bottling giant Coca-Cola Europacific Partners, which was formed in 2021 as a result of the combination of a four-way merger. The merger saw the combination of the three main bottling companies for Coca-Cola in Western Europe – Coca-Cola Enterprises; Coca-Cola Iberian Partners; and Coca-Cola Erfrischungsgetränke – together with Australian bottler Coca-Cola Amatil, which was a client of Xakia.
Following the merger, Coca-Cola Europacific Partners undertook a competitive review that led to it consolidating on Xakia company-wide. Michael Scuvee, head of legal innovation and chief data protection officer at Coca-Cola Europacific Partners, said: “Based on the great success that our Australian team has already had with Xakia over the past five years, we have decided to make this our global standard for legal matter management, replacing our other applications.”
Xakia allows users to file and track their legal matters in a central online location, as well as streamlining legal intake and triage. It has built-in data insights and a simple expense management tool. Its clients include Calendly and Australian department store chain Target.
“After a competitive market search, I am delighted that Coca-Cola Europacific Partners have not only selected, but have successfully implemented our solution, further accelerating our footprint within the EMEA region,” said Jodie Baker, group CEO at Xakia Technologies. She added: “This is an exciting development given Xakia only launched in EMEA in February of this year.”
As first revealed by Legal IT Insider in February, Xakia expanded into EMEA with the hire of UK-based legal tech founder and serial investor Dan Wales, who took on the role of VP of EMEA.
