Sourcing Simple™ Key Differentiators


Sourcing Simple, Inc. is comprised of an experienced technology development and sourcing team. The combined experience of our team includes 6 technology patents and billions of dollars in direct materials spend. Over the years, we’ve listened to what customers want and have integrate their needs into the most robust sourcing solution on the market. We understand the marketplace and how to deliver solutions in an affordable and easy-to-use manner.


Our technology is purpose-built from our experiences with direct material buyers and suppliers. This experience, combined with our technological skills, has enabled us to seamlessly incorporate the latest technology into our products. Our solutions are compatible on any device and are tailor made to your manufacturing needs.


We also realize that it’s impossible to separate technology from customer service. We believe in providing a personal touch to your experience, so that if any of our clients ever have questions, we are available 24/7 to address any general or technology-related concerns.


Most solutions on the market require large investments that simply aren’t an option for the majority of manufacturers out there. Sourcing Simple™ is a small company too, and we understand the pains of growing a business. We’ve refused to take on investors and instead, have chosen to develop our organization organically. Because of this, we’re able to make the price of our products affordable and transparent. There’s no need to “contact us” for pricing details since we publish them on our website for everyone to see. We believe in the value of our solution so much that we don’t require long-term contractual commitments. Making our solutions accessible to all types of companies means more opportunities to develop future partnerships.


C-Sourcing™ and Job Shop Exchange® is not the ending to our story, they are the beginning. Clients who license our C-Sourcing™ technology will be able to use our Job Shop Exchange® platform free of charge as part of our license agreement. C-Sourcing™ and Job Shop Exchange® are just the beginning of what we have to offer. Check out our Solutions Roadmap and see what we have in store.
