In the business world, sourcing and procurement are merely a step in the overall business process. There is not a business in the world that can survive without sales. Yet, most Internet-based applications today have failed to provide useful functionality to help in the sales process.
Through the Commerce Platform, CBOS® helps sales teams rapidly create and distribute sales offerings while capturing and reporting sales activities by customer, location, product, salesperson, price, quantity and seasonality. Using the SMI Module, suppliers can efficiently monitor and replenish customer inventory levels automatically through Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI) and other contractual sales programs. Armed with effective sales tools, suppliers can level the playing field, allowing their customers to achieve the procurement savings and efficiencies they require, while at the same time maximizing the profitability needed for the supplier to stay in business as a low cost provider of quality goods and service.
