How Blue Fetch Works
Blue Fetch gives contractors in the field the option to get building materials delivered quickly, typically within 2 hours. Contractors enter their jobsite location and purchase the building supplies they need through our online store.
Orders are then sent to our partner suppliers in close proximity to the jobsite for fulfillment of the materials. Once the availability of ordered materials is confirmed by the supplier, drivers will be routed to that location to complete the pick up and delivery to the contractors jobsite.

What Do We Need From Our Building Supply Partners?
Accurate Inventory Pricing
It is vital to have the most up-to-date pricing for all the building supplies that are available on the Blue Fetch web store. The majority of the time, our developers can set up automation to integrate with your existing inventory management software. If not possible, you will also have the ability to manually update pricing by importing a spreadsheet as needed.
Fast Order Confirmations
When an order is routed to your location, you will receive your choice of an email, text, or phone call to notify you of a pending order. We ask that you confirm material availability by clicking an Approve Button in your vendor portal. This will prompt a Blue Fetch driver to be routed to you for pickup.
Expedited Order Fulfillment
Delivering the customers building supplies quickly and accurately is our top priority. To achieve this, we need your team to pull the materials as quickly as possible to be ready when our driver arrives for pickup.

How do you start working with Blue Fetch?
Blue Fetch is a technology-based service, but people are our most valuable assets. The first step in this process is to meet with your dedicated SRM or Supplier Relationship Manager. The SRM will answer any questions you may have about working with us and confirm it makes sense for both parties to work together.
Once it's determined to be beneficial for both of us to work together, we'll begin the simple implementation process:
- We'll complete all of the required paperwork to establish a purchase account with your business
- We'll get your account set up in our online vendor portal and give you a short tutorial on how to use the simple online system
- You'll need to determine what materials you will add to the Blue Fetch online store. These should be materials that are typically in stock and available right away since we are geared towards on-demand, same day delivery.
- We will need to work together to set up inventory management in our system. We have developers that can automate this process to make it easier for everyone. If automation is not possible, our techs can manually load the initial inventory information into our system. From there, it will be simple for you to make pricing updates as needed.
And that's it! From there, you will start receiving notifications if an order is routed to your location. Feel free to reach out to your SRM at any time for all questions or concerns.

Providing contractors and builders with an unparalleled customer experience is what we strive for. We look for partners that share this philosophy when it comes to customer service.
