Plug In. Go Faster.
Buyers and Sellers Struggle to Connect and Collaborate, Slowing Down Time to Market
Food, beverage, and CPG companies have unique challenges:
- Today’s legacy tools—spreadsheets, ERP, CRM, PLM, etc.—don’t help manufacturers and brand owners connect with suppliers.
- Custom portals fail to speed up regulatory compliance and new product development (NPD); in fact, they slow it down.
- Organic, vegan, non-GMO, gluten-free, etc. are now fundamental marketing claims, rather than points of differentiation.
- Suppliers are buried in customer requests, often submitting redundant details in different formats.
- Customers are sourcing more ingredients off shore, increasing supply chain complexity and making information gathering even harder.
