Spokesperson Amanda Rosseter said in a email sent to various media outlets, including CBS News and The Los Angeles Times, that the reason is to change "the tools and methods in which we communicate as a company."
In an internal memo Bloomberg uncovered, Coke's Chief Information Officer Ed Steinke said the system was turned off "to simplify the way we work and increase productivity."
Bloomberg reported that the younger workforce uses text messaging and email more than the time consuming voice mail system.
The company is in the midst of a plan to cut $3 billion in annual expenses by 2019, The Atlanta Journal Constitution reported in October after Coke announced slumping sales worldwide.
