Early adopter Raley’s benefits from CMX1 for Grocery’s capabilities for product management, ethical sourcing, supply chain transparency, and supplier compliance
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) - CMX, a leading provider of Enterprise Quality Management Solutions (EQMS) for supply chain management and operational execution, today introduced CMX1 for Grocery, featuring an integrated quality and private label product management solution specifically designed for grocery retail businesses.
Available now, CMX1 for Grocery combines workflow automation and intuitive collaboration tools to enable grocers to scale their private label offerings, improve product quality, manage risk, and ensure ongoing supplier compliance and food safety for fresh and private label offerings.
The new private label product management solution streamlines and automates the end-to-end process for vetting and onboarding suppliers, authoring product specifications, and approving facilities for production. It enables grocery businesses to collaborate with suppliers and labeling and packaging designers to bring private label products to market faster and more efficiently. With intuitive and easy-to-use digital forms, built-in and fully customizable workflow automation, notifications and status tracking, it ensures consistency and accelerates time to market. In addition, CMX1 for Grocery offers supplier audit, document, and certification management support to streamline the ongoing monitoring of quality and regulatory compliance.
“The continued rise in popularity of private label offerings has greatly helped grocers drive banner loyalty, increase basket growth, and elevate the shopper experience,” said Bert Clement, CEO, CMX. “Coupled with all of the recent supply chain issues and the upheaval caused by the pandemic, the time is right for a fully digital, integrated approach to quality and private label management. CMX1 for Grocery is designed to help grocers scale their own brand programs; ensure quality and food safety; and increase profitability.”
Raley’s, an early adopter of CMX1 for Grocery, recently went live with the solution to manage their private label offerings across 10 categories and 60 subcategories for products sold at its 121 Raley’s, Nob Hill and Bel Air stores, with plans to expand to its affiliate’s Bashas’ locations in the future.
“CMX1 for Grocery has taken what was once a largely manual process across multiple systems at Raley’s and enabled us to have a single solution with standardization and automation for how we manage our private label program. With plans to expand our offerings, we knew we needed a platform that allowed us to scale our management and monitoring practices across product quality and food safety, regulatory and supplier compliance, and ethical sourcing,” said Elodie Thao, Senior Food Safety and Quality Assurance Manager, Raley’s. “From ease of access and use, including for our suppliers, to increased organization and efficiency, CMX1 allows us to focus on what matters most to our business – our commitment to delivering the highest levels of quality to our customers.”
