BUFFALO, N.Y., Aug. 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Bureau Veritas Consumer Products Services (BVCPS), a world leader in quality assurance, product testing, certification, inspection, and audits, is pleased to announce the launch of ECOM, its latest development in the BV OneSource (BVOS) suite. This new ECommerce platform aims to improve the ability to source safe and quality products in a timely manner.
ECOM will enable importers of consumer products to accomplish a range of tasks through one convenient tool, including: creating a free account; booking, scheduling and paying for an inspection/audit; tracking the status of on-going jobs 24/7; and obtaining detailed reports as well as access to a repository of all inspection and audit reports booked through ECOM. In addition, the ECOM solution streamlines the Test Request Form (TRF) process by allowing clients to copy previous submissions, thus saving time and effort.
"Importers of products from locations where they have no physical presence face numerous risks associated with sourcing," remarked Rohit Kamat, Bureau Veritas Director, Global Information Services & Business Architecture, "They need to consider such factors as the capability of the factory to meet their needs, validation of their products to specifications, and adherence to social accountability requirements. Bureau Veritas is able to help meet those needs with our knowledgeable and skilled inspectors and auditors in over 50 countries. With BV OneSource, we are also able to provide full visibility to all these activities, and now with the addition of ECOM, we can allow a highly efficient and frictionless approach to book services, and organize and manage the quality activities in the overall sourcing process from beginning to end."
Another advantage of the ECOM platform is the availability of obtaining other Bureau Veritas services. A customer can easily access our innovative scorecard Factory Assessment Solution to verify if the factory they are sourcing from has the capacity and capability to meet their needs. In addition, one can minimize the risk of non-compliant products, reduce the risk of recalls and returns, and increase the sale of products at full price through use of BVCPS Inspection Solution. These services can be booked and scheduled online in a matter of minutes through ECOM, and the orders will be tracked in real-time in BV OneSource.
