“When Google selected Kansas City for the installation of Google Fiber, that was a validation point of just how relevant as a tech community we really are,” says Drew Solomon of LaunchKC and the Economic Development Corporation of Kansas City (EDC). “The fact that a technology brand with the reputation of Google chose Kansas City first really gave the city and region a lot of pride in our identity as a nationally relevant tech community.”

Identifying the Problems
The search for a solution always begins with a problem—or problems. As a global leader in infrastructure protection and maintenance services, Aegion Corporation manages 175 facilities in 33 countries, which add up to more than 1,000 job sites per year. With limited visibility into those locations, many of which span hundreds of acres in areas with little to no connectivity, it’s no wonder that Aegion struggled to accurately track high-cost customer assets, which also increased the risk of delayed delivery times.

Stroll through the soaring corridors of one of Kansas City’s favorite landmarks, Union Station, and you’ll not only have a chance to see history—you can actually experience it.

For more than a century, Dewhirst has played a key role in the evolution of clothing retail and supplied diverse brands and retailers with quality garments. Although the company had no problem keeping pace with the evolution of retail and fashion trends, manual warehousing and distribution processes inhibited the company’s ability to keep up with a rapidly scaling customer base. Manual data entry into the company’s enterprise software system, for example, limited visibility into Dewhirst’s dispatch process and complex customer requirements. Rather than continuing to operate with this cumbersome workflow, Dewhirst needed a solution that could mobilize key supply chain processes while also scaling to meet growing company and customer needs.
