Moving Beyond Spreadsheets
For the past 40 years, Atlanta Recycling Company (ARC) has been helping businesses, mills, thrift stores and charities in over 38 countries liquidate product lines, wholesale remnants, and facilitate the reuse and recycling of surplus clothes, shoes, and accessories.
Every week, the company’s warehouse takes in about 600,000 pounds of material. To maximize profits, everything must be tracked and closely managed—from the way trailers are loaded, to the cost to ship and unpack, to processing and reselling. Executing all the steps along the way with paper-based processes and data entry across siloed systems was becoming increasingly burdensome for the small staff as the company grew.
