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 printing and marketing services.

Procuring print and marketing services 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 printing and marketing services.

RSN was founded by three seasoned executives from the print, paper, and technology industries. Sarah Scudder, a marketing and procurement leader with extensive experience in the print management technology and outsourcing space, joined the RSN team and became the company’s President in August 2018. 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 marketing services procurement.

Sourceit, RSN’s flagship e-sourcing solution, is specifically designed to enable companies to manage their spending on print and marketing services effectively and efficiently. In 2019, clients used Sourceit to manage over 89,000 purchases having a total value of over $88 million.
