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

You know your people are key to your success. You know you need the right marketing, sales, and service people and outsource partners working together as one unified demand chain team. But it’s never that simple. So when questions arise about how to solve a problem or take things to the next level, you need answers fast. But as with other ‘special projects’, the right people are rarely available to do them. You need a SWAT team you can depend on. You need DemandEdge.
