HUNT VALLEY, Md., Jan. 5, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — DemandBridge, LLC, (DB) a dominant Marketing Automation Platform provider to approximately 500 Marketing/Print Services firms, announces their latest integration with SAGE to power the quote-to-order workflow for promotional products.
Distributors, Suppliers, and Agencies have long relied on DemandBridge software to power their businesses – often alongside solutions from other mission-critical technology partners. With the increased significance of Promotional Products in our customers’ growth strategies, DemandBridge is proud to partner with SAGE to offer a host of capabilities within the DB Sourcing product. The SAGE Connect API offers many services to facilitate the transfer of product, category, vendor, and order information to and from applications like ours.
With these tools, users can continue to utilize SAGE as they do today to execute product searches, create presentations, and more, but cut down on the eventual re-keying of pricing and spec information into the DemandBridge products they ultimately use to manage projects, propose pricing, and place orders.
The DB Sourcing solution was the logical first candidate for bringing SAGE data directly to the DemandBridge product suite. Customers utilize this web-based procurement solution for its ease of use, job status dashboard, and other features aimed at slashing the time it takes to get from quote to order. With this latest integration, we leverage real-time product information coming directly from SAGE, including imagery, pricing, and specifications to populate customer proposal documents. Users can then employ DB Sourcing to send that proposal to their customer before submitting a purchase order to awarded suppliers.
“This latest integration with SAGE is truly exciting,” said David Rich, Chairman and CEO at DemandBridge. “Our relationship with SAGE has always been strong, and this was the next logical step in enhancing our customers’ User Experience. We are eager for our customers to take advantage of these added capabilities which are sure to make their use of DemandBridge technology more seamless and efficient than ever before. As always, our goal at DemandBridge is to provide the most cutting-edge technology to our customers, and this is an exciting milestone in that journey.”
“We are thrilled to be integrating with DemandBridge to help improve efficiencies for print and promo distributors,” said Jarod Thorndike, Vice President of Business Development. “We continuously strive to improve our relationships and build on the comprehensive services we can offer our integrated partners.”
