SAGE, the leading provider of information, marketing, and business management solutions to the promotional products industry, announces the accumulation of one million verified products in the SAGE Total Access product database.
SAGE has the only Verified by Supplier database in the industry. As a SAGE Advantage Member, suppliers are encouraged to verify product information and pricing through the SAGE Supplier Center in real-time. Products can also be verified through SAGE’s Bulk Product Update and real-time APIs. When a distributor sees the Verified by Supplier icon, they know they can trust that the product’s data and pricing are up-to-date and accurate. Over 80percent of active products in the SAGE database are verified, and many distributors choose to only search for verified products. Additionally, verified products have an increased chance of showing up first in search results.
“With the supply chain issues and market fluctuations we’ve been seeing that are not likely to be resolved in the immediate future, the ability for suppliers to verify their product data and for distributors to be able to rely on that data’s accuracy for their customers is paramount for our industry,” said David Natinsky, President of SAGE. “We are thrilled to have reached a million verified products in our database, and we will continue to work with our suppliers to ensure that as many products in our database as possible remain verified.”
Distributors can limit searches to only verified products in SAGE Online, SAGE Web, or SAGE Mobile by going into the product search tab and selecting the VERIFIED checkbox in the “Other Filter Options” at the bottom of the search screen. Within search results, verified products display a red checkmark in the right top corner of the tile view. To see if a product is verified, locate the red verified logo next to the product’s pricing table. To view the most recent date of verification, hover over the verified logo.
