Virtual Private Marketplaces
& Sourcing Initiatives
Connecting your people, to your suppliers, your way.
Youtopia provides the software and support services for Virtual Private Marketplaces: an on-line portal with authorised access to approved products and services, configured to individual preferences.
Founded in 2011 with the belief clients should connect to their suppliers using their own software, not the suppliers’ online catalogues. This way our clients gain the convenience of a single point of contact (SPOC) to multiple suppliers, assured continuity, centrally negotiated pricing and greater control. Suppliers benefit from greater adoption of their approved range, plus simplified billing process.
Our work with marketing and operational teams of major organisations, led to Youtopia software including tools that facilitate related workflows eg requests for bespoke products, booking event items, campaign management and allocations.
Client ERP systems are typically focussed on the “front end” trading solution. The plans and needs for the “back of house” supply chain are often too far down the priority list or too expensive to be configured. Youtopia provides a cost-effective SaaS solution that is easy to use and easy to configure, readily meeting the needs of multi-branch organisations.
Youtopia’s portal is likened to Amazon for enterprise. Our clients select their suppliers, products and services plus how they want their supply chain configured. There’s a range of workflow tools to help with sourcing initiatives too.
We have designed the right mix of highly effective tools that are robust yet flexible and straight forward to install.
A single point of contact (SPOC) for sourcing products and services is an ideal place to share information across your network. As an extension of your intranet, Youtopia’s Comms Centre has a range of features and functionality to spread your news and achieve compliance. MORE
The portal is proven, intuitive and easy to use. This results in greater compliance, reduced rogue spend and enhanced visibility, helping the introduction of new procurement initiatives. MORE
Warehousing & Logistics
Through a suite of APIs Youtopia can link to your 3PL (third party logistics provider) displaying real time information relating to client-owned products, availability plus track and trace orders. MORE
An enormous amount of time can be saved by facilitating regular, laborious tasks. Our Campaign Manager makes it easier to plan the various steps and timeline involved with marketing campaigns, plus helps the sourcing, allocation and distribution of the different materials involved. MORE
Procurement Support Services
Our clients have the choice of implementing Youtopia software as part of an in-house solution or outsourced managed service. Our organisation has the resources available to deliver any or all of the components involved with your end-to-end solution. MORE
