Joe Beydoun, Lipari’s director of supply chain management and business intelligence, was trying to figure out how to arrange items and choreograph movements in the new warehouse to maximize speed while minimizing breakage. The facility needed to store 30,000 distinct stock-keeping units (SKUs), add 200 new item types a week, and ship 150,000 cases of product each night. Then he thought about the heat maps used by sports teams to understand hitter or shooter tendencies. Could Lipari, Beydoun wondered, build a visual representation of its new warehouse that likewise showed areas of the most and least activity?
In a competitive business like ours, time is of the essence. The visual warehouse goes beyond the charts and graphs we were getting with our existing analytics, to give us an instant view of exactly what’s happening with our inventory.”

The platform that changed the culture
“It’s a game-changer. We immediately see how inventory is moving, where damages are occurring, where wrong items have been placed, and the results of our warehouse management strategy.” — Joe Beydoun, Lipari Foods, director of supply chain management and business intelligence
Modern-day logistics management and brokerage service companies such as Sunset Transportation need robust data and analytics to drive insights, decisions, and growth. When it became apparent that the firm’s existing Tableau environment lacked the enterprise capabilities it required to take client analytics to the next level, the St. Louis, Missouri-based company had to find a platform capable of growing at the same pace it was
We gave our incumbent vendor the opportunity to scale their use cases, but they couldn’t match the breadth of the ibi platform. Our previous solution certainly has a place here. However, it doesn’t have the capabilities we needed for scalable customer-facing and on-demand analytics.”
