How our Data & Analytics team helped a foodservice distributor client manage their data and improve productivity with Enterprise Data Warehouse (EDW)
When it comes to data, our client has their fair share. As a leading foodservice distributor in the United States, they collect, store and analyze data from various avenues – including the 15,000 restaurants they loyally serve, the impressive network of delivery drivers they employ, and the substantial inventory of fresh food they must maintain. But, that much data can cause operational challenges in a business.
Without a modern data platform, our client faced functional inefficiencies in the way they managed their data. They used an outdated spreadsheet system, and their team spent too much time sorting information and not enough time extracting valuable key metrics. They craved a process they could automate, repeat, digest easily and update daily to meet their organizational needs.
However, to find this, they needed the help of a partner. According to our client’s VP of Technology & Supply Chain Services, “Centric has become one of our most critical strategic partners. We’re able to leverage their expertise on strategy, executive coaching, continuous improvement, best business practices, data visualization, and general web and mobile application development to deliver significant value across our organization.”
