Intelligent Invoice Management

The Challenge

One of RateLinx’s clients is among the oldest and most respected corporations in the construction and home improvement industry. The company has a track record of innovation and quality that has allowed it to grow into a Fortune 500 company with more than 32,000 employees, acquiring 24 subsidiary companies along the way. From paint to faucets, it’s likely your home has one of its products in it.

The company’s huge scale, wide variety of products and global reach makes it an industry powerhouse, but also presents a myriad of challenges for its shipping and logistics managers. The company purchases and ships parts and products all over the U.S.; items as small as a bathroom faucet to as big as a hot tub. Despite using innovative technology and design in its products, company’s transportation management approach was antiquated – a mix of outdated systems and tracking methods inherited from the more than 24 companies in its corporate organization.
