How to Extend Quality into Retail Sourcing
Retailers require safe, high quality, good-value products that meet the ever-changing demands of their customers. Slow and inefficient supply chain management systems often do not deliver the products they require within the specified time lines. Retailers need to adopt a solution that gives them control and improves product quality, supply chain efficiency, and profitability.
In this short video you will learn the benefits of utilizing the Extended Quality and Sourcing Solution (EQSS), an online, cloud-based, retail sourcing platform will enable businesses to improve quality, shorten time to market, overcome potential stoppages, increase efficiency and profitability. EQSS will allow retailers and brands to strongly upgrade their product lifecycle management (Retail PLM), retail sourcing and quality control process allowing a shift from end of production control to risk based quality assurance starting at product conception.
Traditional supply chain management systems can be cumbersome, with data being inefficiently passed along the chain. They can be uneconomic, slow to adapt to changes in the market, and poor at maintaining quality along the whole chain. EQSS brings together improved data flow and quality assurance (QA) at all stages of the supply chain – from raw material to retailer. This online, cloud-based system allows retailers to overcome potential stoppages, improves quality and time to market (TTM), and increases efficiency and profitability.
EQSS brings together SGS’s global leadership in testing, inspection and certification, with CBX Software’s market leading IT sourcing management systems. By creating a new kind of “extended” project lifecycle management system (Retail PLM), EQSS provides a holistic approach to supply chain management with the incorporation of an in-depth quality management process.
