What is Surefront?
Surefront is a B2B communication solution for wholesale buyers and sellers. We pick up where traditional PLMs have left off, enabling sellers and buyers to communicate in a single visually appealing shared space where all messages, product lines, RFQs, order adjustments and POs take place and are organized in simple and easily retrievable fashion.
Surefront is the industry’s first Full Product Lifecycle Management (FPLM) software. Powered by patented Immersive Collaboration Technology (ICT), Surefront takes a giant leap past traditional PLM software.
Surefront is much more than a traditional PLM but still has many similar functions. Whereas a traditional PLM is a great inter-company tool used to build products, it lacks in its ability to empower companies to easily and seamlessly collaborate and communicate with others outside the organization, i.e. contractors, overseas factories, designers, brands and retailers.
Surefront is considered the industry's first Full Product Lifecycle Management Software (FPLM) and takes a giant leap past traditional PLM software all the way from downstream factories to upstream customers.
Traditional online PLM tools may start the product lifecycle, but they don’t complete the full go-to-market loop. Once PD teams are ready to hand off products to internal sales teams, you are back in the email log jam with PDFs, Excel and image attachments, slowing your speed to market.
Surefront takes a giant leap past traditional PLM software by managing your entire product lifecycle from PD to market. Not only does Surefront pick up where PLM tools have left off, its patented technology also allows suppliers to engage vendors more efficiently.
Much like a traditional GTM, Surefront seeks to strengthen the relationship sellers and retailers have with their overseas suppliers and partners. Surefront enables product development teams to seamlessly communicate with these overseas suppliers no matter their country or region.
Surefront takes a giant leap past PLM software by managing your entire product lifecycle from PD to market. Its patented technology is a massive evolution of the traditional wholesaler and buyer relationship removing the logjam of PDFs, Excel sheets, image attachments and email overload and replacing it with a single collaborative environment where images, product details, line sheets, quotes and purchase orders can all be created, viewed and edited at once.
Surefront is 75% more productive than email due to its unparalleled collaborative abilities that simply do not exist in static email form. Traditional methods of product development, wholesaling and buying can take dozens of emails filled with PDF, Excel and image attachments to execute a single order. Surefront enables you to build, collaborate and edit documents without ever leaving the page.
Surefront is a Full Product Lifecycle Management (FPLM) collaboration tool, it is not a marketplace that sources new buyers and sellers.
Digital cataloging is just one of the many capabilities that Surefront features. Even if you use a tool that allows you to easily share a digital catalog you still do not have the ability to build quotes, finalize purchase orders, customize products, and collaborate within that digital catalog. We know, because we patented the ability to accomplish all those tasks in a single space.
