Chalkboard

Bridge members use Chalkboard to share information with their social network. Members share news, events, industry trends, and files with their business friends. Once a business friends the businesses with which it does business, it will see what they share.

Auto-posting
Auto-posting is a game-changing feature for sharing Chalkboard content. For retailers, auto-posting saves them from having to create content and manually repost what brands share. Brands do the work for them. As a brand, this feature delivers the ultimate exposure for its news and products. A brand no longer has to wait for retailers to find the time to share what it shares with them. It's automatically shared.

Library File Sharing

Bridge members use Library to share and store large files with each other. Library offers more space and ease then Dropbox and other file-sharing services.

Smart Products

Bridge members use the Smart Products service to share product data and product pictures with each other and customers. Retailers sync with their brands and the brands' products appear instantly on the retailer's respective Bridge website. Learn more about Smart Products here.
