about us

The Challenge

The supply chain is fragmented, inefficient and operates in isolation of one another.

Bodegas
  • Pay higher costs, no bulk discounts

  • Lack financing

  • Plan their inventory with no data

Distributors
  • Are labor-intensive

  • Have low customer reach

  • Don't optimize inventory, routes through data

Consumer packaged goods (CPG)
  • Lack access to real-time data

  • Spend millions on product life-cycle planning

  • Lack standardized data

Our Solution

We transform the entire ecosystem into a digital, integrated supply chain, powered by sophisticated AI, and it all simply starts with bodegas ordering through our app.

  • Automate orders digitally for bodegas

  • Give bodegas the best deals across all distributors (leveraging the bulk purchases)

  • Distributors are less labor-intensive, can reach their long-tail customers and use data to improve operations

  • CPGs can use real-time data for product life-cycle planning.

  • Data is centralized for the first time and normalized.
