Client Overview

Before IronOCR, we were manually entering orders. "Now we’re saving $45,000 annually," remarks Tony Feder, VP of Shared Services at Independent Procurement Alliance Program, highlighting the transformative impact of IronOCR on their operations.

IPAP, Independent Procurement Alliance Program, stands as the largest refrigerated redistribution company in the United States, boasting a robust network of over 50 dairy suppliers. With a track record of selling over one billion pounds of cheese, IPAP is widely recognized as industry experts, ensuring the distributors have access to the specific products they need. Through consolidated operations and lower costs, distributors who source dairy products from IPAP benefit from streamlined processes, reduced costs, and improved service levels, resulting in higher quality dairy products for consumers.

Additionally, IPAP negotiates the lowest pricing available for its vast distributor base, ensuring distributors receive better pricing than if dealing directly with dairy suppliers, making IPAP a trusted partner in optimizing supply chain efficiencies in the food industry. As VP of Shared Services, Tony Feder oversees finance and IT departments, driving the company's commitment to innovation and cost savings.
