CARLSBAD, Calif., Sept. 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- As retailers face greater risks in meeting an expanding list of regulations, there is increased pressure on suppliers to provide these customers with greater volumes of and more accurate data about their products, says Source Intelligence.
The focus on supply chain transparency and the need for improved supplier data will be center stage as the nation's top retailers descend on Washington, D.C., this week for their annual Sustainability and Environmental Compliance Conference. Source Intelligence, the international leader for supply chain transparency and management solutions, will be exhibiting at the Retail Industry Leaders Association conference.
"Good data is the key to avoiding risk and complying with various regulations. Retailers, however, are at the mercy of their suppliers to provide data that is easy to use for reporting needs, and is consistent with their ethics and business practices," said Jess Kraus, CEO of Source Intelligence.
Some of the nation's largest retailers already are utilizing Source Intelligence's cloud-based compliance solutions because SI has the largest network of suppliers, and because its engagement team works with thousands of suppliers to ensure accurate data is being filed on its reporting platform.
"As consumers demand more transparency and greater ethical practices from retailers, Source Intelligence has emerged as the most comprehensive solution for retailers who need accurate and dependable data from their suppliers," Kraus said.
