Our Story

Real Sourcing Network (RSN) is a procurement technology and services company with a bold and audacious mission: to change the way companies buy print and packaging.

Procuring print and packaging efficiently is challenging because the supplier base is typically fragmented, individual purchases are usually small, and demand is unpredictable. More importantly, most purchases involve a unique product or service that requires detailed and distinctive specifications. So general purpose procure-to-pay solutions don’t work well for these spend categories. As a result, most companies still rely on manual tools and processes like email, spreadsheets, and telephone calls to buy print and packaging.

RSN was founded by three seasoned executives from the print, paper, and technology industries.  From the beginning, RSN’s leaders recognized the need for a sourcing solution that is purpose built to meet the unique demands of print and packaging procurement.

RSN’s flagship e-sourcing solution is specifically designed to enable companies to manage their spending on print and packaging effectively and efficiently. In 2020, clients used to manage over 89,000 purchases having a total value of over $88 million.
