BUICED Case Study
BUICED is a liquid vitamin product made in the USA that provides a month supply of daily shots to boost your life. By simply adding a 1 ounce shot everyday into your favorite glass of fresh veggie juice, your morning orange juice, apple juice, or even a glass of water, you will receive 100% the daily value of Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Vitamin E, Vitamin K, Thiamin, Riboflavin, Niacin, Vitamin B6, Folic Acid, Vitamin B12, Biotin, and Pantothenic Acid.
BUICED enlisted ConnectPointz to automate its processes when it began selling in Wal-Mart. When BUICED onboarded Rite-Aid and HEB in 2019, they confidently turned back to ConnectPointz ensuring that the communications between their trading partners and warehouses would be seamless and error-free.
HOW HAS ACT DATA SERVICES HELPED BUICED?
“ACT DATA has been a tremendously valuable business partner as I continue to grow the BUICED Liquid Vitamin business with retailers across the United States.
“Starting with Wal-Mart in 2018, Michael Meyer and his team helped me create a “no touch” system that worked SO WELL in terms of processing and routing the purchase orders from Wal-Mart via EDI to my 3PL, and then closing the loop with the proper invoicing once those orders were shipped. We worked together to ensure this system was set up correctly. Once it was, it has worked like clockwork!
“Also, the customer service I receive from the entire ACT Data Services team has been second to none. I always know I will get an answer quickly, and so it helps ease my mind when potential issues arise, which are rare!
“As with any aspect of your business, there are many choices. I did the due diligence. For me, it came down to the fact that Mike and his team at ACT Data Services really listened to what my needs were, and then worked with me to adapt ConnectPointz to meet those needs. It’s not a cookie cutter model that puts the onus on me to take what is there and force fit it into my system. They cater it to my system!”

HOW CONNECTPOINTZ PROVIDED A SOLUTION:
Simply put, ConnectPointz has allowed BUICED to operate “hands-off” from order to shipment to invoice. Orders from Wal-Mart flow into ConnectPointz, which automatically routes orders to the assigned 3PL for fulfillment. ConnectPointz receives shipping information back and relays that data to the retailer in compliance. ConnectPointz also generates invoices to send to the retailers in the formats required within expected time frames.
With that automated system for Wal-Mart in place and successful, BUICED looked to ACT Data to add Rite-Aid and HEB to ConnectPointz as sales channels.
ConnectPointz was set up to communicate with BUICED’s chosen 3PL, Prime Distribution Services, to ensure that orders were being routed and fulfilled correctly and efficiently. ConnectPointz automatically aggregates incoming orders and provides for requested manual work on the part of BUICED ensuring the correct warehouse routing.
As BUICED continues to grow and bring on additional retail sales channels, ConnectPointz will allow for seamless expansion.
