Smart Sourcing

Brands offering packaged goods can source packaging, manage suppliers, reduce costs, and accelerate innovation through a number of services.

Smart Sourcing

Webpac is collaborating with consumer goods companies worldwide.

The result is accelerated brand innovation by enhancing creativity, speeding up product development, and improving efficiency/reducing costs through a powerful digital packaging toolset, community, software, and knowledgebase. For example, our supplier mapping tool shows your supplier locations alongside your plants to assist with strategic sourcing.

A Packaging Innovation Portal empowers people to collaborate and share knowledge internally as well as work smarter with key partners in a sophisticated global supply chain. For example, it sounds obvious but packaging and products are three-dimensional so let all members of your team (technical and non-technical) work in 3D to make a better product faster and win a greater market share. Webpac is a proven global leader in this field. Empower the participants in your global supply chain to feed your development teams with the latest information including their facility locations, news stream, innovations, catalog data, and 3D models.

The race to fulfill the consumer's needs is getting faster - it is time to arm your team with the tools to win.
