How do PiF and Blue Ridge work together?

Almost every common business process starts with a document and ends with data. Whether the data needs to be entered into an ERP or line of business application or stored securely in a central repository, PiF Technologies offers the solution to transform the documents you have into the data you need.  

Through our tailored Blue Ridge integration, we, as PiF Technologies, play a crucial role in streamlining supply chain planning processes and eliminating manual data entry for distributors. Our solution enters data from Purchase Orders into their ERP based on the recommendations of Blue Ridge’s dynamic supply chain intelligence, including order quantities, locations, vendors, and other factors. Users submit an XML file via File Transfer Protocol (FTP), and then our Robotic Process Automation (RPA) solution, powered by UiPath, extracts and inputs data into the relevant fields of the Purchase Order screen within our customer’s Enterprise Resource Planning system (ERP). This transformation replaces what was once a labor-intensive task with efficient automation. 

As a leading integrator of document and data automation solutions, PiF specializes in implementing and supporting cutting-edge technologies like Artificial Intelligence (AI), Robotic Process Automation (RPA), and Machine Learning (ML). Our mission is to tackle operational inefficiencies head-on, particularly in manual data entry processes, by harnessing technology to automate tasks and streamline previously manual processes. 

Within the beer, wine, and spirits sector, a key industry we serve, we cater to approximately 50 beer distributors nationwide. Our primary focus in this industry lies in revolutionizing their operations through our Accounts Payable Automation solution, eliminating vendor invoices’ manual handling. This initiative has resulted in substantial savings in both time and costs for our clients. This is the sector where our strategic partnership with Blue Ridge will have the most significant impact, and we’re excited to bring these benefits to our partners and clients. 

Expanding our efforts into Supply Chain Planning automation with our Blue Ridge partnership will result in even more time and cost savings for clients leveraging the solution. Using the combined power of Blue Ridge and PiF Technologies, organizations can optimize their operations, streamline their supply chain planning processes, and drive greater success in their business endeavors. This will lead to increased customer satisfaction, improved profitability, and a competitive edge in the market.
