Woolworths, Australia’s largest retailer, has chosen TradeStone’s Merchandise Lifecycle Management platform to manage its supply chain.
TradeStone offers a platform for businesses to manage suppliers and orders, B2B sales and financing, and it connects with more than 6,000 suppliers. It will support more than 20,000 users involved in Woolworths supply chain including overseas procurement operations, and will manage a range of products including food and beverages.
Woolworths’ Group Commercial Director Carl Hargrave said: “We are working collaboratively across all divisions within Woolworths to get to a single product development system,” adding that the new platform offers “efficiencies, ease-of-use and consistency.”
TradeStone President Brian Marsden said: “Increasingly, retailers must manage complex global supplier communities whilst simultaneously expanding product offerings and brand banners to achieve customer growth.
“Woolworths has taken a world-class approach by enabling a single platform across all divisions and product categories and they are a leader when it comes to managing local and international sourcing.”
PASA’s new conference, Food Procure, is a unique event specifically designed for procurement managers and CPO’s in the food and beverage industries to learn, network and engage with their peers and key suppliers to making their supply chain competitive.
“Preparing procurement for a world of change in the food and beverage supply chain” will be held on 2nd & 3rd June in Sydney. Click here for more details.
