The Next Generation Data Engine

We’ve created the most powerful data network in the foodservice industry.

I realized very quickly that data was what this industry craves – and that data would be our differentiator.

How It Works

Our Technology Platform

We’re using technology to transform the foodservice supply chain — delivering real-time data about your products, prices, and profitability.

Data Ingestion

At Our Core, We Are a Data Ingestion Machine

Our vast network of cost savings and GPO services not only provides a substantial benefit to our operator partners — it also drives our data intake engine. Operators submit their purchasing data to Buyers Edge in order to take advantage of rebates and deviation contracts. We are then able to aggregate that data for the benefit of the industry at-large.

Clean Data

Clean Data is Useful Data

Imagine gathering information from over 1,000 distributors — each with their own product codes, descriptions, prices, and units of measure. Our proprietary Data Manager software cleans and normalizes product codes from disparate sources, distilling each item down to one unique — and accurate — product code.

AI Matching

A Match Made in AI Heaven

Buyers Edge Platform’s proprietary artificial intelligence finds same and similar products and organizes them into a vast map of foodservice items. We use this algorithm to uncover savings opportunities for our operator clients and to roll out effective targeted marketing campaigns on behalf of our manufacturer stakeholders.

Stakeholder Portals

Putting the Data To Use for YOU

All that cleaned and organized data isn’t worth much unless it’s delivered in an actionable way. Our stakeholder portals present easily accessible data insights to our operator, manufacturer, and distributor partners.
