iTradeNetwork Announces General Availability of iTradeOrder: a Full-Service Supply Chain Platform for Mid-Market Grocers

April 18, 2019

DUBLIN, Calif., April 18, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- iTradeNetwork, the leading global provider of on-demand supply chain management and intelligence solutions for the food and beverage industry, is proud to announce General Availability for iTradeOrder--a new fresh trading, traceability, inspection, and analytics platform specially tailored to ambitious mid-market retailers.

“As mid-market retailers increasingly compete against mega-retailers like Amazon, it’s clear that there aren’t very many low-investment ways for them to significantly boost their top and bottom lines,” comments Rhonda Bassett-Spiers, iTradeNetwork President and CEO. “At the same time, consumers are becoming more selective with their purchasing decisions, especially in categories like organic and locally-sourced, and larger retailers have balance sheet advantages and ways to drive growth through digitization that many mid-market players currently don’t have. iTradeOrder is a SaaS offering that can drive big growth for the mid-market with small investment.”

Using iTradeOrder, mid-market retailers can now access iTrade’s industry leading network of over 5,000+ trading partners to quickly discover new vendors and products that will help them both satisfy their customers’ evolving needs and win new customers. Built on the foundation of iTrade’s industry-leading OMS procurement platform, iTradeOrder’s planning, order management, accounting, and logistics modules not only streamline back-office processes, they also reduce store-level shrink and keep shelves stocked with the freshest products available.

“More than just order management, iTradeOrder’s integration with our existing traceability and inspection analytics suites make it a true supply chain analytics platform,” adds Rene Cardenas, Head of Marketing and Strategic Planning. “If a retailer’s digital transformation strategy includes maximum visibility into their supply chain as well as partner discovery, fresh-to-go and mobile pick-up, iTradeOrder can make that vision real. Enterprise functionality without the enterprise-level investment.”

iTradeOrder is one in a string of innovations iTrade has brought to the market in the last 12 months, including Transit--a Palletized ASN traceability solution, an SFCA Module that drives compliance for the Safe Food for Canadians Act, and iTrade Blockchain--the food and beverage industry’s first homegrown blockchain solution.
