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.
