BOSTON, Feb. 27, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Transparency-One, the source to store supply chain transparency solution, today announces market momentum and new product capabilities.
Bringing together consumers and supply chain data
Consumers want to know more about the products they buy and are demanding more information from brands. In response, brands have increased their investments in supply chain transparency initiatives.
"We're seeing a trend emerge where brands want to interact directly with consumers on a deeper level about their supply chains," said Chris Morrison, Chief Executive Officer. "Consumers seek ways to easily identify safe, healthy products that also align with their values, and brands possess the data to help them do that. It's a matter of tying the two together, beginning with reliable, source to store supply chain information."
Transparency-One is proud to work with leading brands to help transform supply chain transparency into meaningful shopper insights. Data along the entire value chain for any product category is validated within the Transparency-One platform, then shared directly via consumer applications—thereby providing shoppers with accurate information on issues integral to their purchasing decisions: product safety, sustainability, and social responsibility.
Expanded consumer products category coverage
Transparency-One has expanded beyond food, apparel, and footwear, and now covers all General Merchandising needs, including:
- Household and Personal Care (HPC)
- Sporting Goods
- Consumer Electronics
To ensure full coverage, compliance and certifications have been updated accordingly to match these product categories. In addition, GS1 categories for these industries are also included in the platform, enabling category standardization among all supply chain stakeholders and across multiple languages.
Automated supply chain mapping and supplier verification
Companies often have numerous sources of supply chain information—specifically around mapping supply chains. Whether in Excel or other legacy systems, Transparency-One can take ad hoc sources of supply chain data and automate building a supply chain network. Once created, brands can mass invite suppliers to verify or edit their information.
