BOSTON, Mass., March 5, 2015 – Trace One, a global leader in private label product lifecycle management (PLM) solutions and transparency software for retailers, manufacturers and suppliers, and SGS, the world’s leading inspection, verification, testing and certification company, today unveiled SGS Supply Chain Solution powered by T Transparency. The integrated platform will provide brand owners, manufacturers and suppliers with complete, farm-to-fork visibility throughout the entire supply chain.
SGS Supply Chain Solution powered by T Transparency is built upon a social network platform that enables the entire supply chain to communicate more effectively in real time, and quickly verify data and assess risks. Organizations can prompt partners to join their network to easily share information and documentation, driving multi-layer visibility that drives down costs and increases product safety. Users of SGS Supply Chain Solution powered by T Transparency have their own profiles and can interconnect with various supply chains, while easily managing the security and privacy within each of those networks. This simplified and cloud-based workflow ensures the accuracy of data and information, helps partners communicate about and react to recalls and industry alerts, enhances productivity, and provides brand owners with a dashboard of invaluable insights, such as overall supply chain risk, visibility and compliance.
“With the growing number of food safety rules and regulations, it is essential for retailers, manufacturers and raw material suppliers to have visibility into all of their business partners and be aware of any potential risks associated with them. Working with SGS Supply Chain Solution powered by T Transparency means you will be able to effectively share information about product safety and partner compliance,” said Jerome Malavoy, CEO of Trace One.
Using real-time supply chain data, the SGS Supply Chain Solution powered by T Transparency will reduce risk, identify ingredient origins and ensure compliance, providing consumers with safe and accurate information.
