provider, has saved Thayer
considerable time, money, and resources by speeding up
the process of integrating business-critical data 10X faster. These
efficiency and productivity gains were achieved following the deployment
of SnapLogic’s AI-powered, self-driving integration solution, enhancing
Thayer’s data management capabilities, supply chain processes, and
competitive market position.

Thayer Distribution is a technology-driven “redistributor” that makes
the entire supply chain more profitable, serving as a bridge between
snack manufacturers and wholesale distributors. Founded in 1978, the
family-run business is an entrepreneurial success story. In the late
70s, Juan and Maria Gallicchio started selling candy out of their living
room, after immigrating with their children to the U.S. from Argentina.
Through a lot of hard work and business savvy, they turned this humble
operation into a successful distribution company now serving nearly
1,000 customers in 14 states.

When the second generation of Gallicchio’s inherited Thayer, they were
eager to take the business into the next growth tier. After examining
the company’s operations, the new leaders discovered an opportunity to
achieve greater efficiency by automating and improving a number of data
management processes. This was especially true of a process wherein
Thayer developers frequently moved inventory and customer data between
two Oracle databases (supporting different distribution centers) and a
home-grown e-commerce platform.

To improve this process, Thayer sought a robust but easy-to-use
integration solution that could automate these manual, code-heavy
integration processes and free up valuable time and resources. The
company selected SnapLogic’s intuitive, AI-powered platform, which can
be employed by users of all skill levels to tackle the most complex
integration challenges, and it has enabled Thayer to save considerable
time, money, and resources. These savings have driven process
efficiencies and widened the company’s profit margins, enabling Thayer
to take on more business than it could before. It now has the capacity
to fulfill a greater number of orders, in turn, driving revenue and

What’s more, Thayer has used SnapLogic to streamline processes directly
affecting suppliers and wholesale distributors. This incentivizes new
partners and customers to transact with the company in the future,
providing yet another avenue for growth.

“SnapLogic has had a profound impact on our data management and supply
chain processes. The self-service nature of the platform is allowing us
to move data 10X faster than we were before. Moreover, we can build
integration pipelines once and then reuse them in perpetuity – this
alone increases our productivity by several orders of magnitude,” said
Guido Gallicchio, Chairman of the Board at Thayer Distribution. “Even
more exciting, while we initially brought on SnapLogic to help with one
particular use case, we now realize that we can use SnapLogic to
accelerate a whole host of other processes, opening up new opportunities
we hadn’t even considered. Our partnership with SnapLogic builds upon
our tech-enabled growth strategy and is increasingly vital to Thayer’s

“The Thayer family’s entrepreneurial story and their embrace of
technology to drive decades of growth is inspiring,” said Praneal
Narayan, Director of Customer Experience at SnapLogic. “We’re always
excited to help companies accelerate their integration processes, but
we’re particularly proud to help a family business like Thayer take
their business to the next level.”
