Enabling companies to more easily and cost effectively unify the procurement and measurement of print and digital marketing materials.
Our ApproachGreat partnerships are built on a shared vision of success
There are more options for companies to reach new and existing customers than ever before. An unintended result of so much choice is a complex and fragmented marketing supply chain of suppliers, agencies, software platforms and supporting data. SupplyLogic is specifically designed to streamline this complexity and solve the challenges inherent to companies that spend millions of dollars annually on print and digital marketing communications.
Whether our client’s emphasis is on creating operational efficiency or improving scalability, our approach is the same – deliver innovation, substantial cost savings, improved processes and reduced business risk. Our team is a group of engineers, scientists and Six Sigma business process consultants who have spent the past decade optimizing the marketing supply chains for many of the world’s leading brands.
We call this approach the SupplyLogic Way, which we believe is the “Gold Standard” in the industry.

Our vision is to become the undisputed Gold Standard in the “Print Management” space. Our team recognizes that intelligent solutions must be supported with flawless execution and that includes our vetted suppliers who are a vital component of our model.

Why SupplyLogic?Today, only 20% of marketing supply chains are fully optimized.
Studies show that most companies spend upwards of 35% of their marketing budget on marketing supply chain operations. A well-designed and managed supply chain offers reliability, scalability and speed to market. Today, only 20% of marketing supply chains are fully optimized.
A company thrives when it focuses on its core activities, specifically those areas that drive revenue and competitive advantage. The marketing supply chain, however, is a complex and fragmented non-core function that is ever-evolving and typically includes dozens of suppliers, multiple software platforms, agencies and partners.
Optimizing the print and digital marketing supply chain is our core business. It’s what we do and what our team has been doing over the past decade for the largest and most complex companies in the world. An outsourcing partnership with SupplyLogic provides the following key components:
- 25-40+% savings commitment
- Access to SupplyLogic’s leverage in the marketplace
- Expert on-site resources working directly with client marketing
- Management of procurement activities and program suppliers
- Integration and management of market-leading technology
- Mobile analytics and reporting to enhance mROI intelligence

You’ve got questions, we’ve got answers.
How do you determine if the current state of my marketing supply chain is optimized?
SupplyLogic will perform, at no cost, an initial assessment of your marketing supply chain. Upon completion, SupplyLogic will deliver a detailed business case that outlines findings, recommendations and provides a future state solution aligned with our client’s corporate strategy.
How much time and resource is required from my team to complete an engagement with SupplyLogic?
Our assessment process is typically four to six weeks and only requires access to data and key stakeholders. We understand your time is valuable. Our process has been designed to avoid any disruption to your day-to-day operations.
What categories do you manage?
We manage physical categories such as commercial print, direct mail, financial print, statements and confirms, point-of-sale signage, forms, labels, envelopes, packaging and promotional items, as well as warehousing, fulfillment and logistics. We also manage digital categories such as B2B ecommerce storefronts, email distribution and reporting, microsites, pURLs and social media.
Do I need to outsource my entire marketing supply chain to you?
Yes, we enter into three to five strategic outsourcing partnerships each year with companies that spend in excess of $10MM annually within the above categories. This disciplined approach allows us to bring our full array of resources to each engagement, delivering optimal results.
Why should I outsource my marketing supply chain and why choose SupplyLogic?
Due to budget and resource constraints, companies are unable to achieve an optimized marketing supply chain independently. SupplyLogic provides expert on-site resources, self-funded market leading technology and exceptional change management leadership.
