Transit Agency Streamlines Operations With Digital Supply Chain Platform
Utah Transit Authority (UTA) provides a public mass transportation system that includes a fleet of over a thousand vehicles from buses to locomotives covering a 1,600 square mile service area.

Gold Eagle Co. manufactures and distributes several leading brands of automotive chemicals that protect and boost vehicle performance. To continue to succeed in a competitive market, they had to overcome a challenge: manual processes that limited visibility and created other inefficiencies along the supply chain. Among those inefficiencies, delayed entry caused loss of inventory visibility, which further delayed transaction processing and led to inaccurate inventory statements down the line.
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.

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.

When you talk about mobile in the workplace, you might first think of using a mobile device for common tasks like checking email or tapping into (no pun intended) an employee-facing app for needs like time tracking and expense reporting. At Old Dutch Foods, however, company executives channeled the power of mobile to optimize manufacturing, distribution and sales, an approach so effective (not to mention innovative) that it was the subject of a new Forrester Research report.
