Case Study: Bare Ground

Bare Ground Background

For over two decades, Bare Ground has been using the most creative concepts to protect people and property without causing harm to the environment or animals that live in it. Bare Ground began with a non-corrosive liquid de-icer product and has expanded into dog scents, garlic animal repellents, and driveway sealants, among other helpful products. Once a winter company, now Bare Ground makes every season more bareable!

Critical Point

Bare Ground was growing, with multiple sales channels in both dot-com and brick & mortar.

Challenge

Bare Ground was working simultaneously with six different methods and formats, incorporating several large EDI companies at the same time. They needed to consolidate their supply chain communication, seeking to use one portal to handle all their EDI and data needs.

I had never set up a new EDI customer so I had no experience I’m grateful for your assistance and professionalism. You went above and beyond for someone who really had no idea of what to do. Thank you!
