Definition: "Demand Chain" - The marketing, sales, service, and logistics functions that connect a business with its customers. 

"DemandEdge has the experience and wisdom to understand the demand chain."

The Challenge

As business becomes ever more competitive, few marketing, sales, and service executives have the resources available to properly answer their critical questions about strategies, organizations, and systems. It’s getting more and more tempting to take shortcuts even though they can lead to bad decisions. But there’s never a good time to assign your best people to answer those critical questions. You need a SWAT team you can depend on. You need DemandEdge.
