DemandBridge is the leading provider of software and technology to the print distribution industry. With our customers’ annual combined purchasing power now over $1 billion in print related sales, we’re laser focused on helping our clients to deliver cost savings to their customers and drive greater profits through more effective and efficient purchasing. Real-time data replication between our back-office accounting and order management system and DB Sourcing results in less redundant data entry, so you can spend more time on the activities that drive your business. No other third-party software application provides this level of integration.
While getting great prices on the products you buy is crucial to your bottom line, reducing the time it takes to quote and award jobs is equally important. DB Sourcing puts the data your users need to move projects forward front and center, and provides a single forum for job-related activities and correspondence. Whether quoting items for the first time or placing a repeat order, DB Sourcing offers quick solutions to meet your needs.
Are you confident in the decisions your buyers are making when awarding jobs? Within DB Sourcing, business owners can create approval rules to gain more insight into their users’ buying processes. Rules—and exemptions—are easy to create, may be as simple or complex as necessary, and may consist of multiple parameters such as number of suppliers solicited, item cost, and product type, to ensure your employees are adhering to best practices.
DB Sourcing comes equipped with robust reports that allow you to analyze cost savings and buying patterns. These reports can be filtered down by CSR, customer, supplier, or product type, and highlight key metrics that you and your clients can use to instantly measure the impact of your buying habits over time. Our distributor partners successfully use these reports to manage compliance with internal policies and to funnel business to preferred partners.
Customers and brands count on distributors to help them achieve the best possible pricing for their print, promotional and marketing services needs. Distributors rely on technology partners to provide valuable solutions to assist in offering these services to win and maintain accounts. At the end of the chain, suppliers crave access and opportunity...and help distributors meet end customer needs.
