Case Study Highlights

  • Company:  Piggly Wiggly Alabama Distributing Company, Inc

  • Solutions: Profound.js
Piggly Wiggly Alabama Distributing Company, Inc. is a wholesale grocery distribution company. The Company serves independent grocers by supplying a wide range of products including dry goods, frozen foods, produce, dairy, and more. Piggly Wiggly Alabama Distributing serves customers in the United States.

The Challenge

As a wholesale distributor, Piggly Wiggly Alabama Distributing Company, Inc supplies food products to approximately 300 independent grocery stores throughout the Southeastern United States.

The continuous process of filing claims and returns has historically been a manual effort involving paper and manual data entry. This antiquated process created a host of problems, including delayed customer returns, loss of internal productivity, and extraneous manual data entry/verification.

The Results

With Profound Logic’s solutions, Piggly Wiggly Alabama Distributing Company, Inc was able to impose validation logic on electronic claims and move away from a cumbersome, error-prone, paper-centric manual process.
