Boardwalk Re-Imagined Deduction Settlement – Join a Webinar


Would You Like to Cut Deductions Admin Time by 93%?

Wouldn’t it be nice if you could automate the traditionally manual and time-consuming step of bringing trade documents and data, such as contracts and deduction backup documents into the TPM system?

We Have Now Made This Quick & Easy!

So, What Is


Addresses the challenge of organizing and consolidating MCB/deduction backup, and simplifies finding the appropriate deal.


Deduction backup documents, from distributors such as UNFI/KeHE, are sent to a secure FTP site, and deductions are populated.


Promotion deductions (typically > 75% of the deduction) are targeted based on customer, amount and date, which becomes more accurate over time.

“Technology is the cornerstone at Adesso, and we continue to enhance our solutions based on feedback from our client community. We developed the Boardwalk Re-Imagined Deduction Settlement solution  based on client and not-yet client suggestions, and is a key offering that will impact efficiency and business process among our client community.” Rich Jones, EVP of Technology Adesso Solutions

How It Works...

We Simplify & Automate Your Settlement Process!

You, or your broker partner, simply upload your emailed or downloaded backup from your distributor into a central location within the Flamingo system.

Boardwalk reads your images and finds the best matches for the backup, based on invoice #, check #, and deduction amount; then recommends which promotions to match each deduction, significantly narrowing the scope so all you need to do is approve or update the recommendation to the appropriate deduction and then finalize the settlement.

Adesso Solutions Launches ‘Boardwalk’ Re-Imagined Deduction Settlement Solution


Uniquely Addressing the Needs of Natural-Specialty Manufacturers

Rolling Meadows, IL. July 19, 2021 – We are excited to announce the launch of Adesso’s brand new ‘Boardwalk’ solution, our Rapid Deduction Matching System and backup downloading, specifically for distributors such as KeHE and UNFI. Over the past few months, we have invested significant development time to enhance our solutions to specifically add functionality that makes Flamingo the only solution that completely meets the unique needs of natural-specialty manufacturers.

Adesso’s Boardwalk Rapid Deduction Matching solution addresses manufacturers’ deduction documents in two key areas to reduce time spent getting the distributor backup data into the system:

  1. Leverages Optical Character Recognition (OCR) to facilitate adding deduction, trade, and other pertinent documentation to populate key fields.
  2. Leverages Artificial Intelligence (AI) to narrow the scope of the open and pertinent deductions to address and reduce search time.

With the combination of Flamingo TPM and the Boardwalk Rapid Deduction Matching solutions, manufacturers benefit from a best-in-class deductions process and solution for the Natural-Specialty channel that enables them and their sales agency partners to clear deductions more quickly and accurately than any other solution available.

“You will reduce admin time, often by 50%,” said Fred Schroeder, President & CEO at Adesso Solutions. “Boardwalk enables you to rapidly address settlements – from the initial short-pay to the closing of the deal; enabling you to quickly collect the ‘low hanging fruit’ of repays, so your team can move to deeper trade analysis and more effective promotions – benefiting both your business, and your retail partners.”
