"Great tool for managing Item Catalogs and Assortments"

Pros: Simplain's Vendor Portal was a key tool for empowering DSD vendor's to manage their Item Catalog and Assortments while I worked as a consultant for Dollar General. The Vendor Portal application offered a simple and intuitive interface for the user to enter item and store data in the form of Models, Catalogs and Assortments that later integrated with the GOLD database.

Cons: I only used a relatively limited portion of the overall capability of Simplain's Vendor portal on a daily basis but all the features I used were spot on. I big part of my interaction with the Vendor Portal was related to analyzing and reporting on assortment data. Vendor Portal allowed this by enabling the user to download item/ assortment data in the form of a spreadsheet. Depending on the data set, this could take more or less time. Anything that can be done to decrease download time on large data sets would be great.

"Great experience"

Comments: Great value for the money and aligns well with our stringent business processes. Embraced very well by our vendor partners as well as downstream users. Professional approach in the need analysis, implementation, and the need for very little training and support. Highly secure and scalable system, whether on-premise or on the cloud.

Pros: Efficient and effective Supplier Management, Product Management, Cost and Rebate Maintenance, Purchase Order/Invoice and Vendor Performance modules. Captures business-specific product data including ingredients, nutrition, allergen, marketing claims and other attributes. Simple mass uploads and simple third-party integrations.

Cons: Suggest additional dashboards. But this is a question of development based on customer need and we hope to do so soon.
