Retailers require safe, high quality, good-value products that meet the ever-changing demands of their customers. Slow and inefficient retail supply chain management and retail sourcing systems often do not deliver the products they require within the specified time lines. Retailers need to adopt a retail sourcing software that gives them control and improves product quality, supply chain efficiency, and profitability.
Traditional retail 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 entire chain. Extended Quality and Sourcing Solution (EQSS) brings together improved data flow and quality assurance (QA) at all stages of the retail supply chain – from raw material to retailer. This online, cloud-based retail sourcing software allows retailers to overcome potential stoppages, improves quality, time to market and increases efficiency and profitability.
EQSS allows retail sourcing and supply chain management, to move from a reactive quality control driven to a proactive quality assurance process, protecting brand profitability and reputations along the way. The installation of QA at every step of the supply chain allows the retailer effective control over the end product’s quality and regulatory compliance. With a global network of QA assessors, SGS can provide independent assessments against defined compliance management programs, anywhere in the world. Utilizing the full scope of EQSS will allow independent assessment of product quality at every stage – from design to delivery – with all the data kept in one readily accessible central location.
