What are Switch and Save Opportunities?

“Switch and Save Opportunities” is a feature that lives within the Buyers Edge member portal, Launchpad.  When a Buyers Edge member makes a purchase from their food distributor, Buyers Edge collects those purchases and loads them into the customers portal.

We’re able to determine the items a customer purchased, the pack size of that item, the manufacturer, the distributor and much more product specific information.  (Learn what the Buyers Edge Platform does with purchasing data!)

Using our proprietary AI software, we are able to analyze the items that our customers purchase and match them against items in our database which are similar,  and hold a CASH BACK rebate. This allows our customers to easily maximize savings by switching to similar products that we’ve recommended. You can easily request a sample of the suggested product and connect with our team to learn more about the specific product.
