The Answer is Switchboard
I came up with the concept of Switchboard after being asked by big consumer packaged goods (CPG) brands
to help them gain shelf space for their products and promotions within independent grocery stores.
Immediately, I saw how time-consuming and inefficient the whole sales process is between CPGs and retailers.
Lots of emails, spreadsheets, portal entries, messages, waiting in lobbies for hours just to get
information in the hands of the buyer. Additionally, brokers and wholesalers added layers of friction and cost.
The last crazy part is that the information was the same for each buyer. I was repeating the same
process to communicate the same information for hours each day. So I asked myself, is there a better way
that companies can sell to each other? Can we create a solution that removes layers of friction, repetition,
and unnecessary processes? The answer is Switchboard.
