"Appian's application platform is crucial to our business growth and mission to provide the best possible customer and Associate experience."
Through Appian's process automation and intelligent business rules, the Store Remodel Process reduced the renovation time for Vitamin World retail outlets from 35 days to 13 days for each retail location.
