A School of Management faculty member’s work putting together a new business information system for Dr Pepper Snapple Group Inc. helped put the Dallas-based beverage maker on this year’s InformationWeek list of the top 500 technology innovators. The annual InformationWeek list, which recognizes America’s leading companies utilizing technology innovation to drive business results, ranked Dr Pepper No. 146. The ranking put Dr Pepper ahead of such industry power performers as Verizon Communications Inc., Pfizer Inc., Intel Corp., AT&T Inc. and UPS Inc. Judd D. Bradbury, who joined the school last summer as a senior lecturer, led a team that spent two years designing and implementing a comprehensive turnaround plan for Dr Pepper bottling division’s business information systems platform. The project created a common enterprise information system for all 175 division locations and included sales, finance, materials management, production, distribution, procurement, human resources and warehouse operations.
