Blue Dog Bakery

SUCCESS STORY

B2BGateway has allowed us to automate our order entry and invoicing processes as well as be compliant with customers who require specific EDI needs and documents.  I am always impressed with B2BGateway’s Production Support Team and their ability to address problems immediately over the phone and through the ticket process on the client portal.

Business Challenge

As the business continued to grow, Blue Dog Bakery needed to improve their supply chain efficiencies to better serve larger customers, especially those requiring EDI.

Solution

The B2BGateway EDI SuiteApp completely removed the need for Blue Dog Bakery employees to manually re-key data, which not only saved many hours of manual order entry but also expedited the ‘order-to-payment’ cycle between Blue Dog Bakery and their customers.

Results

With Blue Dog Bakery’s sixty plus customers, B2BGateway’s EDI SuiteApp for NetSuite processes each order transaction in near real time, converting incoming purchase orders to populated sales orders within the Blue Dog Bakery NetSuite system.

CUSTOMER PROFILE

Since 1998, Blue Dog Bakery has been dedicated to making healthy all-natural treats for dogs. Headquartered in Seattle, they make natural dog treats which are sold to several large grocery/mass retailers such as Target, Walmart and Kroger, just to name a few.  Their first natural, low-fat biscuits were created because the founders wanted a healthy snack for their own dogs. Blue Dog Bakery knows that a long and happy life goes paw-in-paw with good nutrition, which they always keep in mind when creating new treats.
