Jigsaw Systems Inc. was formed to build a suite of new and innovative products specifically designed to modernize the sales and marketing process between manufacturer, distributor and customer. Jigsaw focuses on the concept that software is more than just a business process tool. Software adds value, it enhances whatever initiative it touches and have a measurable return on investment. With that in mind, their systems are designed to increase top and bottom line revenues.
Jigsaw Systems offers its clients more than twenty web-based modules. As the name ‘Jigsaw Systems’ implies, the modular design of their web-based platform allows clients to select the modules they want to deploy. For example, from one central platform, a distributor or supplier can elect to deploy all or a portion of Jigsaw’s SPA Control module, without having to purchase or deploy any of Jigsaw’s other modules. Jigsaw’s web-based, modular structure helps distributors and suppliers efficiently and cost effectively align resources, define clear contract expectations, and share critical business data.
To date, the three most frequently utilized modules are SPA Control, Point-of-Sale, and Stock Advantage (a predictive inventory tool with an optional VMI component).
Jigsaw Systems’ SPA Control offers two complementary SPA services: SPA analytics and web-based SPA processing.
As a first or initial step in more effectively managing your SPA contracts, Jigsaw offers its SPA analytics consulting service. Through this stand-alone service, Jigsaw is able to analyze each of a supplier’s SPA contracts against 7 key measures, making recommendations that will measurably improve both the effectiveness and the profitability of each SPA contract.
For those suppliers who are interested in more effectively managing, processing and auditing their SPA contracts, Jigsaw offers its web-based SPA platform. Jigsaw’s SPA platform is able to encompass the entirety of the ship & debit management process (or each component taken individually), from contract setup, administration and auditing rebate claims, to measuring contract performance via an array of simple, easy-to-use analysis tools.
For distributors, Jigsaw Systems offers a three-phased pricing analytics service (MarketEDGE) encompassing both SPA contracts, as well as every day, thru-stock business (stock and non-stock).
As a first or initial step in more effectively managing your company’s profitability, Jigsaw offers its SPA analytics service. Through this service, Jigsaw is able to analyze each of a distributor’s SPA contracts against 7 key measures, making recommendations that will measurably improve both the effectiveness and the profitability of each SPA contract.
Concurrent with this service, Jigsaw Systems conducts a thorough pricing analysis of your company’s thru-stock business. By thoroughly analyzing a customer’s annual volume against their product buying patterns; Jigsaw is able to identify those products that are truly price sensitive; as well as model, test and recommend an effective pricing architecture, significantly improving a company’s thru-stock profitability (including product sold via SPA contracts).
Finally, via Jigsaw’s web-based measurement platform, the distributor is able to easily monitor and measure profitability improvements at the SPA contract level, as well as at the customer and product pricing levels. In other words, Jigsaw’s integrated measurement platform enables a distributor to quickly and accurately measure the resultant profitability improvements against the SPA contract and thru-stock pricing baselines that existed before the new pricing models were adopted.
