In 1947, Joseph T. Newton, Jr., founded what is now known as Piggly Wiggly Carolina Company, Inc., (PWCC) to supply a small network of independently owned grocery stores with goods at wholesale prices. Today, the company serves 115 PWCC stores in South Carolina, North Carolina and Georgia.
PWCC realized that storing documentation in file cabinets and generating hard copies of reports for stores and accounting purposes was inefficient. Administrators decided that a document management, imaging and workflow system would help reclaim office space, reduce overhead and make documents more readily available. After evaluating numerous products, PWCC selected ImageNow from Perceptive Software.
"Reasonable cost, proven integration with PeopleSoft systems and powerful ERM features made ImageNow stand out," says Dolly Droze, director of corporate accounting.
