Most distributors and manufacturers are familiar with DemandBridge, but so much is changing with the company.
In October 2017, DemandBridge announced the acquisition of e-Quantum, Inc.—a company known for its own Distributor Management System and eCommerce offerings, especially among small-to-midsize distributors. In January 2018, DemandBridge acquired Kramer-Smilko, Inc., another company known for Distributor Management solutions. With these additions, the new, independent company brings more than 90 years of combined experience within and beyond the print services industry and serves over 500 distributor customers.
BENEFITS YOU CAN EXPECT
Microsoft Azure cloud-based services
Grow and scale quickly
You’ll be able to select the tools and services your company needs. With our platform move to Azure, you’ll have the freedom to deploy wherever you want, using the applications and frameworks of your choice. This cloud solution will improve our performance (and yours), enable us to “onboard” new clients quickly, give you access to advanced business integration tools, and keep you on the leading edge of marketing services.
Marketing software-as-a-service approach
Customize tools to your needs in a flexible way
Technology should never be one-size-fits-all. Some clients need only marketing resource management, while others need tools for customer segmentation analytics, next-best-offer analysis, marketing campaign management, product lifecycle management and more. With our SaaS model, you can get all the data, applications and APIs you need in one place—or select only the ones appropriate for your business.
Data management capabilities
Transform and consolidate your data
It’s not enough to put ink on paper better than your competitors, because those competitors are also finding ways to gather and manage information. Savvy distributors are winning business by talking about improving processes, not just products, and they’re finding ways to turn customer data into action. With DemandBridge, you’ll help clients assess the effectiveness of their communication to create proper follow-up messages that elicit action, making you more responsive (and your clients more successful).
Purchase modules as standalone offerings
We now offer our customers the ability to purchase modules as standalone offerings that can be integrated to competing eCommerce solutions, backend ERP systems, procurement platforms, and customer intranets. We’re not going to stop you from pleasing your customers (and making money in the process) if this is the most logical solution.
Gain clearer transparency into orders and inventory
All customers, including ones that use DemandBridge strictly to manage their print and promo business, will gain access to better reporting functionality. Faster, easier access to standard and customized reports will help to inform your future decisions.
Upgraded sourcing technology
Improve margins and boost customer service levels
Managing requests from clients every day can be time-consuming. Our industry-specific, fully integrated system for supply chain management helps to drive down the cost of print orders. We empower your customer service personnel to organize, compare, bid, and manage jobs more effectively. This helps to ensure that your clients receive competitive pricing, each project is matched to the correct production equipment, and you have access to real-time job tracking.
Our platform development process includes updates and improvements every 3-6 weeks. New feature sets or major product releases are usually introduced twice a year. We have an advisory board to manage the strategic direction of our products to ensure we stay ahead of developing market demands, and our users contribute ideas and requests.
